Paper Abstract

Technological developments in sensor technology, image data storage, processing, interpretation, analysis and transmission within the last decade have caused a revolution in our ability to sense, measure and exploit imagery from remote platforms. This is causing us to reassess sensor systems and the traditional division of responsibility between data acquisition, data analysis, and information processing. The ability to collect throughout the spectrum and to further divide the spectrum into discrete segments offer the promise of greater selectivity of collection and exploitation against target specific requirements. In view of these developments, which by the way are not static, this paper presents a review of where the technology now stands and where the state-of-the-science is headed. This is not intended to be all encompassing, but to highlight a few technologies that will be influential in the future.
