"KIBO Hi-Vision Earth View" is a JSF lead Educational System enabling students, teachers, and the public to receive "live" high definition television (Hi-Vision) images from KIBO, nick name of Japanese Experimental Module (JEM) of International Space Station (ISS). We expect that Hi-Vision images will be distributed to young generations of not only Japan but also any other countries, especially Asian and US. Our system development is strongly supported by Japan Aerospace exploration Agency (JAXA) that planes to install 2 sets of Hi-Vision camera on KIBO's exposed facility in 2012. High school or Junior High school students request to take live images of specific locations around the world. The live Hi-Vision image viewing and accompanying learning guides are fantastic resources to study global environmental problems, natural disasters, Earth and space science, geography, geology, social study, culture, communications, and so on. Our project was started from December 2009 with project fund from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and we will complete system development by the end of March 2012. In this presentation, we would like to introduce our overall system architectures and how it works. Copyright ©2010 by the International Astronautical Federation. All rights reserved.
