Paper Abstract

Remote sensing satellite operators throughout the world are starting to require an increasing number of proprietary hardware and software components as a prerequisite to the collection, processing and distribution of their satellite's data. This assessment investigates the technical, economic and political impetus for these proprietary requirements. This assessment concludes with an overview of the potential impact on ground receiving stations and the remote sensing community.
