Satellite-based assets have the potential to provide high value in all phases of disaster management. This statement is true for each of the three planes on their own, i.e. Earth observation, satellite communication and satellite navigation. However, the potential benefits of using satellite-based assets in disaster management can further increase by exploiting the synergies between them. This paper presents a multi-hazard concept currently under development for all phases of disaster management, integrating all planes of satellite-based assets in a modular and efficient manner. The paper describes the design principles, the synergies and the benefits that can be expected from such a system when it is put into operation./
