The cutting edge Remote Sensing Technology of Japan
RESTEC has positioned the development of human resources aimed at the promulgation of remote sensing technologies as one of the pillars of its businesses. To that end, it receives set-up requests and conducts training programs on applied technology targeted at researchers from Japan and overseas including developing countries, practitioners from national and local governments, as well as general users. It also carries out a wide range of other activities, such as accepting students for thesis training and conducting trial lessons on remote sensing for high school students.
