NASA Award Recognises Air Force Remote-Sensing Programme

NASA and the US Department of the Interior presented the 2010 William T. Pecora group award to the US Air Force Eagle Vision program Tuesday 15th February 2011 at a Pentagon ceremony. Eagle Vision was recognised for contributions in the United States and abroad to homeland security, humanitarian aid and natural disaster recovery efforts.   The programme consists of five ground stations capable of retrieving real-time satellite imagery from numerous commercial Earth-observing satellites to deliver time-critical precision images to support US global crisis response. The ground stations are deployable worldwide. The award was presented to James G. Clark, Air Force... (read more)

Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency Signs RADARSAT-2 Deal

MDA’s Information Systems group has signed a contract with the Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency (MRSA) to provide RADARSAT-2 information that will be used to support a number of applications, such as agriculture monitoring and natural disaster response. MRSA has been using RADARSAT information to support various applications since 2003. MRSA has been utilising the recent access to RADARSAT-2 information to aid in the search of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.  The RADARSAT-2 satellite has global high-resolution surveillance capabilities that include a large collection capacity, high accuracy and wide-area coverage that is extremely useful in imaging the vast tracts of...

32nd International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment

The Centro Nacional de Alta Tecnologia (CNAT) in San Jose, Costa Rica from June 25th to 29th hosted the 32nd International Symposium on Remote Sensing of the Environment. Costa Rica takes pride in its "green" policies and practices, so it was fitting that the theme for the symposium was the "Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS)". Costa Rica announced that it had become the seventy-first member nation of GEO just days before the symposium. The Group on Earth Observations (GEO), of which ISPRS is a participating professional society acts as co-ordinator for the GEOSS.   Human Health The bi-annual... (read more)

Operational Remote Sensing Applications: Opportunities, Progress and Challenges

‘Operational RS Applications: Opportunities, Progress and Challenges’ is the main theme for the ISPRS TC-VIII mid-term symposium which will be held at Hyderabad, India, from 9-12 December 2014. The mid-term symposium will focus on the operational applications of remote sensing in the nine Working Groups [http://www2.isprs.org/commissions/comm8/wgs.html] of the TC.  Participants are encouraged to share success stories, methodologies, challenges and experiences gained in the process of undertaking remote sensing applications. The focus will be on the entire chain of RS-based application services as well as methodology gaps and likely application scenarios with many missions in the pipeline.  Contributions are also invited...

User-friendly Remote Sensing Data Infrastructure in France

New Services Will Stimulate Market Growth
Over the past decade, Geosud has contributed to successfully mitigating the various obstacles to the operational use of satellite imagery for environmental management and territorial development. Geosud’s role in the project will soon come to an end but the services will continue, embedded in an even better infrastructure: Dinamis. As of next year, Dinamis will provide satellite images of land, sea, air or underground, and even online image processing, for organizations related to the public sector in France. As you approach the Maison de la Télédétection in Montpellier, France, the first sight that greets you is a 5.5m-tall receiving station... (read more)
