    Title

    Contemporary Considerations about the 1986 Principles Relating to Remote Sensing of the Earth from Space

    Description

    Remote sensing technology is strategic by nature, providing invaluable information both to governments and private individuals. Knowledge of the national territory is a key aspect of sovereignty. Indeed, data gathered by remote sensing satellites are currently appraised as necessary to the sustainable development of nations all over the globe. But those services also represent a commercial endeavour of increased market value, which cannot be taken for granted, due to strong international demand. Almost 30 years after its conception, the 1986 Principles Relating to Remote Sensing of the Earth from Space and its proposed international legal regime are of increasing relevance. Have those principles achieved the status of international custom? Is it finally time for a treaty?
