Many new remote sensing programs are under way throughout the world, in the U.S., Europe Japan, and elsewhere. NASA's Earth Science Division is developing and implementing a broad range of Earth spaceborne remote sensing missions to answer fundamental scientific questions requiring the view from space and to meet societal needs. These include missions from the National Research Council’s Earth Science Decadal Survey, Climate Continuity missions and selected instruments to assure availability of key data sets, operational missions to ensure sustained land imaging provided by the Landsat system, and small-sized competitively selected orbital missions and instruments belonging to the Earth Venture Program. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is developing and operating the ALOS, GOSAT, GCOM, GPM/DPR, and EarthCare series of programmes. The European Space Agency (ESA) is developing and implementing the METOP, METEOSAT, Copernicus, and Earth Explorer programs. A number of new remote sensing programmes are also under development by other organisations and nations for research and operational use. Many of the above are contributing to the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) as envisioned by the intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO). Each of these programs comprises a set of remote sensing systems to address their science and applications objectives.

Papers are solicited on the following and related topics:

  • sensors being developed
  • satellites being developed
  • enabling technologies for sensors and satellites
  • new design concepts for sensors, systems and satellites
  • hyperspectral sensors
  • sensor calibration techniques
  • in-situ sensor measurement assimilation
  • modeling and simulation techniques for sensor concept development
  • focal plane assemblies including detectors and spectral filters
  • future LIDAR missions
  • system precursors including test beds and airborne simulators
  • data systems being developed
  • new data processing techniques (applications to Big Data and remote sensing)
  • sensor webs for in-situ cal/val or remote sensing.

  • Sessions on the following topics are being planned:
  • Japanese missions and technologies
  • European missions and technologies
  • US missions and technologies
  • ISS attached payloads for Earth observation
  • innovative small satellites (nano/cubesats, microsats) and constellations for Earth observation
  • new satellite technologies
  • calibration
  • drone systems for Earth observation
  • focal plane technologies.
