First Images Japan's Earth Remote Sensing Satellite

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has released the first images from the Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument for Stereo Mapping (PRISM) payload on their Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS). This sensor can acquire high-resolution three directional 3-D data. Goodrich Corporation's (NC, USA) Electro-Optical Systems team developed the high precision optical systems in the three PRISM payload telescopes that provide the three-dimensional images. Each telescope has an optical configuration allowing it to capture large areas on the ground. The mirrors for each of these lightweight systems are 0.6- metres in maximum dimension and are polished to a surface precision better than 10... (read more)

Standardizing Remote Sensing Data Collection at FEMA

During a disastrous event such as a major hurricane, wildfire, catastrophic flooding or a destructive earthquake, first responders must quickly understand the magnitude and the nature of the event and its impacts upon citizens and communities. Remotely sensed data can be crucial for preliminary awareness about the scope of such a disaster. That is why the USA’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has implemented a tool called the Area of Interest (AOI) Tasker to automatically identify and prioritize areas that require collection of satellite and aerial imagery. It was used for the first time during the 2018 hurricane and wildfire... (read more)

Joint China-Brazil Remote Sensing Satellites

The CBERS Programme, a co-operative Chinese-Brazilian Earth Resources Satellites Programme with versatile cameras, has realised a vast success of the Brazilian data distribution policy that is leveraging research and business in Earth observation. It is expected that in 2005 new ground stations around the world will be receiving CBERS images. Since the launch of the first US Landsat-1, formerly called ERTS (Earth Resources Technology Satellite), back in 1972, the world never stopped to improve on remote sensing technologies and broaden the applications. Landsat-1 opened to the world new opportunities for observing the Earth from a completely new point of view.... (read more)

Fourth Edition of Manuel of Remote Sensing

The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) has initiated development of the fourth edition of the Manual of Remote Sensing (MRS) under the leadership of Stan Morain as editor-in-chief, Mike Renslow as associate and technical editor, and Amelia Budge as associate and design editor. This project, planned for completion in 2015, will be designed and executed as an enhanced e-book and will focus on three Parts: Systems, Data Management, and Applications. Part I: Systems focuses on the physical and chemical laws of nature that allow the “unseeable” to be sensed, mapped and analysed; describes system designs that collect... (read more)
