Paper Abstract

SEOS is an acronym for the Synchronous Earth Observation Satellite. As a geostationary system, it provides unique possibilities for Earth Surveillance - it is ideally placed for monitoring short lived and dynamic phenomena over any and all areas on a near hemispheric size field. This implies the capability for continuous monitoring, timely observations between periods of cloud cover and signatures associated with sun angles. For SEOS, applications (missions) are primarily in the areas of Earth Resources and Meterological Disaster warning "Applications" as used herein refer to missions with eco-nomic and/or social benefits.
