Remote Sensing Satellite.

What Does It Mean?

Really…… The Eyes in the Sky.

Remote sensing can be defined as the process of measuring the physical properties of distant objects using reflected or emitted electromagnetic energy. The technology of remote sensing satellite involves monitoring, observing, and remote sensing information of the land, ocean, and atmosphere with the help of inbuilt sensors (active or passive) that are integrated into airborne (aircraft and balloons) or space-borne (satellites and space shuttles) platforms. They also provide detailed global observations of both natural and anthropogenically induced changes in land surface, atmospheric and climatic drivers.

The overviews, SWOT analysis and strategies of each vendor in the Remote Sensing Satellite market provide understanding about the market forces and how those can be exploited to create future opportunities, 2019-2024. Get Sample PDF of  Remote Sensing Satellite Market Report.

Developing the Map of the Future

The new era of earth observation started with the launch of Landsat – 1 (earlier named as Earth Resource Technology Satellite or ERTS) in 1972. According to the latest data available, About 1,100 active satellites, both government and private. Plus there are about 2,600 ones that no longer work. Among these, remote sensing satellites are few in number but rapidly increasing.

While the Remote Sensing Satellite industry grows, it will also continue to transform from one largely controlled by a small number of “government space, maritime and weather forecasting agencies” to one in the hands of “hundreds of small entrepreneurially driven enterprises.

Remote sensing has a wide range of applications in many different fields:

1. Land applications:

Satellite remote sensing of the land

Satellite remote sensing of the land plays a critical role in many aspects such as the exploration of mineral resources, the monitoring of floods and droughts, soil moisture, vegetation, deforestation, forest decline, forest fires, carbon storage, or land cover, road monitoring, and urban planning.

2. Coastal applications:

Satellite remote sensing of the ocean coatline

Monitor shoreline changes, track sediment transport and map coastal features. Data can be used for coastal mapping and erosion prevention.

3. Ocean applications:

Satellite remote sensing of the ocean

The weather forecast, marine traffic, coastlines monitoring, fisheries, Monitor ocean circulation, and current systems, measure ocean temperature and wave heights and track sea ice. Data can be used to better understand the oceans and how to best manage ocean resources.

4. Hazard assessment:

Satellite remote sensing in hazard assessment

Track hurricanes, earthquakes, erosion, and flooding. Data can be used to assess the impacts of a natural disaster and create preparedness strategies to be used before and after a hazardous event.

5. Natural resource management:

Remote Sensing Satellite for Natural resource management

Monitor land use, map wetlands, and chart wildlife habitats. Data can be used to minimize the damage that urban growth has on the environment and help decide how to best protect natural resources. Get Detailed Insights About This Report.
