Liaison Organizations

Liaison organizations are governmental or private activities with developmental programs in the areas of space-related data and information systems. Liaison participation in the working groups is encouraged but not required. When Liaison participation occurs, it usually will be focused on a particular subject of interest to the Liaison organization as opposed to standing involvement, which is not precluded.
