India to launch Remote Sensing Satellite

India plans to launch an advanced Remote Sensing Satellite, Cartosat-2A, on April 28 along with a Third World Satellite (TWSAT) and eight nano satellites on board home-built polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV) from its spaceport of Sriharikota.   ISRO sources said that Cartosat-2A is a follow-up of Cartosat-2, launched in January last year. Cartosat-2A will carry a panchromatic camera capable of providing scene-specific spot imageries for cartographic and other applications. TWSAT would be a co-passenger, along with eight nano satellites, which have come from countries including the Netherlands, Canada and Germany, ISRO sources said. TWSAT is the first satellite in...

Achievements In Earth Remote Sensing Recognised

NASA and the US Department of the Interior presented the 2011 William T. Pecora awards to Alan H. Strahler, professor of geography and environment at Boston University, and to the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing at a ceremony held on Tuesday 15th November 2011 in Herndon, USA. Strahler was recognised for his contributions to remote-sensing science, leadership and education, which have improved the fundamental understanding of the remote-sensing process and its applications for observing land surface properties. The Canada Centre for Remote Sensing received the group award for outstanding collaboration across national boundaries.   The awards were presented at the... (read more)

Thermal Remote Sensing Makes City Bearable

In a series of coordinated activities, called Thermopolis 2009, a group of thermal remote-sensing and urban-climate experts from Greece and Spain carried out ground-based measurements at various sites in and around the Greek capital, whilst aircraft equipped with sensitive instrumentation passed overhead and satellites orbiting Earth acquired data simultaneously from space.   The Thermopolis campaign in Athens began on 18 July 2009, when two aircraft made simultaneous flights over the city. One aircraft, operated by INTA, Spain, took measurements with a hyperspectral imaging spectrometer called the Airborne Hyperspectral System. The spectrometer is sensitive to both visible and thermal infrared wavelengths,... (read more)

Vietnam Plans Second Remote Sensing Satellite

Having successfully launched its first remote sensing satellite as recently as 7 May 2013, Vietnam has already announced the launch of the second satellite, VNREDSat-1B, scheduled to go into orbit by 2017. Vietnam has become the fifth ASEAN nation to own a remote sensing satellite after Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Vietnam has reached an agreement with Belgium upon which Belgian companies under the auspices of Spacebel, a Belgian software engineering company operating in the Space and Earth monitoring applications sectors, will manufacture the VNREDSat-1B. The second remote sensing satellite will help to monitor natural resources and natural disasters, and... (read more)
