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)

12th Brazilian Remote Sensing Symposium

For Companies, Researchers, Universities, Institutions and Schoolteachers
The 12th Brazilian Remote Sensing Symposium (SBSR) was held in the Convention Center, Goiânia, Goiás State Capital from 17th to 21st April 2005. This was the biggest symposium since the start of the series in 1978, with 1,043 participants from sixteen countries, representing nearly all continents. The event was organised by the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) through its General Co-ordination of Earth Observation and the Latin-American Society of Specialists in Remote Sensing (SELPER) Brazilian Branch. Prior to the start of the actual symposium, thirteen courses were given during the weekend. Topics varied from sensor technology, such as Hyperspectral... (read more)

Russian Working Group for Remote Sensing Legislation

Current developments in, and future perspectives for, Earth remote sensing technology were discussed in the State Duma, part of the Russian Parliament, on 22 October 2012. The participants at the thematic round table also examined the need for improvements to legislation in this field. The round table with the theme ‘Legislative regulation of Earth remote sensing technology applications’ was organised and held by the State Duma Committee on Science and Science-intensive Technologies together with the Association of Suppliers and Users of Space Imagery Data, ‘Earth from Space’. The round-table participants particularly focused on the challenges of providing legislative support to... (read more)

Ever-increasing Role for Remote Sensing

GIM International Interviews Rainer Reuter
If we can succeed in putting remote sensing on the agenda as a useful tool for monitoring climate change, I will be happy, says Rainer Reuter, head of Marine Physics at the Institute for Physics, Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany. Also president of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL), Reuter is a strong advocate of a greater role for remote sensing in environmental monitoring in order to prevent global warming. GIM International talks to Reuter about the challenges in the field of remote sensing and about the mission of the association he presides over.   For... (read more)

Remote Sensing Technology Reveals WWII Escape Tunnel

A team of archaeologists and geoscientists using remote sensing techniques have discovered an escape tunnel in Lithuania dating from World War II. The narrow tunnel is 35 metres long and was hand-dug by Jewish prisoners who were being held captive at Ponar. Up to 100,000 people – most of them Lithuanian and Polish Jews –are estimated to have been massacred by the Nazis at the site in the Ponar forest, just outside the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, between 1941 and 1944. Hand-dug Tunnel According to the researchers, in 1943, as Soviet forces were closing in on the region, the German... (read more)

First Russian Private Earth Remote Sensing Satellite

ISC Kosmotras successfully launched a cluster of small spacecraft by the RS-20 rocket (Dnepr) on 20 June 2014. The first Russian private Earth remote sensing satellite from the company Sputnix, named TabletSat-Aurora, also was sent into its target orbit. The data from the microsatellite will be received by a ScanEx UniScan ground network for use in commercial, scientific, educational and environmental projects. Alexander Serkin, CEO of ISC Kosmotras, called the launch an important event. For 20 years they have been working with globally renowned companies and spacecraft developers, the majority of which are private ones. And they are now proud to... (read more)
