The Remote Sensing Technology Center of Japan (RESTEC) was established in August 1980, with the aim of implementing basic and comprehensive research and development of remote-sensing technology for investigating global phenomena and Earth resources using data obtained from satellites, and disseminating knowledge of remote-sensing technology and other utilization of space technology, in order to promote economic growth and social development as well as the well-being of the nation.

Since then, RESTEC has been receiving and processing data from Earth-observation satellites from both Japan and overseas, and providing the data to users and researchers entrusted by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and other related agencies. In parallel with these activities, RESTEC also conducts research and development activities on remote-sensing technology and endeavors to disseminate the results of its R&D efforts.
