Taiwan: Washington's de facto ambassador in Taiwan, Kin Moy, has suggested that the United States is contemplating cooperating with Taiwan to develop a military satellite. The announcement came after Moy’s visit to the National Space Organization in Hsinchu City, Taiwan. “That kind of advanced technology, there's no limit to what we can apply to in terms of our cooperation,” he said.
Meanwhile, Taiwan is planning to launch two satellites into orbit next year. The first is indigenously developed and the other is a joint effort between Taiwan and the United States.
