Paper Abstract

The term “remote sensing” has traditionally been applied to peaceful applications of space-based observations. The word “remote” could also imply noncontact and nondestructive, or noninterfering (sensing), especially when describing sensors. If you actually analyze the operation of the optical instruments, you realize that most of them function as “remote” in the sense that they do not interfere with the naturally occurring processes and the information is carried imperceptibly by electromagnetic radiation.
