JNS.org – The Israel Space Agency (ISA) will become an official member of the United Nations Committee on Space Affairs following the signing of an agreement of cooperation, the Israeli Science, Technology and Space Ministry announced Wednesday.

The accord between the UN Office of Space Affairs and the ISA will allow Israeli experts to influence global projects such as helping rescue teams during disasters by using satellites in real-time.

“Israel will be able to contribute more of our know-how and abilities for peace, and pave the way for expanding international cooperation in space. We will be in the small circle of countries that influence world priorities in the field,” said Daniel Brook, an ISA adviser on international cooperation.
