Asst.Prof.Weerapong revealed that they had exchanged ideas about space technology with Italy which was a great experience and they could now study and understand how to develop satellites. Nowadays they use COSMO-Sky Med satellite for military and country developments. Also COSMO-Sky Med could capture any objects even if the object was covered. They used COSMO-Sky Med to search for an oil leak which leaked into the sea off the coast of Rayong earlier this year. In addition the satellite was also used to identify land in Bangkok that had sunk 3-4cm in 1 year. Space Krenovation Park :SKP was the first space technology centre in Thailand.
