Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the legal regime of outer space from the standpoint of satellite remote sensing by examining international multilateral treaties, national laws, and national policies. International space law is a product of the Space Age, an offspring of the scientific and technological revolution. International space law framework has three components: the general regime of space law, the law governing certain space applications, and declarations. The first component is called corpus juris spatialis, which provides the general framework for member states to regulate national space activities through more specific rules. National laws are the concrete implementation of Article VI of the Outer Space Treaty, which requires the authorization and continuing supervision by the appropriate state party of the national activities conducted by its nongovernmental entities.

Keywords: corpus juris spatialis; international multilateral treaties; international space law; national laws; Outer Space Treaty; satellite remote sensing; Space Age
