The History of the International COSPAS-SARSAT Programme

From the IAA-IAF-IISL Advisory Committee on the History of Astronautics (ACHA), a report on the creation of the International COSPAS-SARSAT Programme has been published.

The report is now online at the IAF website: www.iafastro.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/COSPAS_Sarsat.pdf

Chapter 4 of the report describes in detail the very lengthy negotiations that led to the creation in 1988 of the international organisation, COSPAS-SARSAT. This is of interest not only to IISL members but also to law students.
