Remote sensing satellite control using image based sensor

Remote sensing satellite control using image based sensor

Earth-observation satellites need automatic attitude control system to steer the satellite to the desired Earth-observation point to perform environmental monitoring, meteorology, natural disaster monitoring, agriculture and similar. Such applications usually require navigation sensors (Earth magnetic, gyros, Sun sensor and star tracker) and observation sensors (imaging camera). This video is illustarting imaging without control. See Remote sensing satellite control using image ...

Landsat-8 Satellite Imagery: Animated View of 336 Band Combinations of a Full Scene

Landsat-8 Satellite Imagery: Animated View of 336 Band Combinations of a Full Scene

The latest significant contribution by the U.S. government is the successful lunch and operation of the Landsat-8 satellite. Its high-quality and rich multispectral data are freely available and provide enormous potential for innovation and applications. Each Landsat-8 scene has 8 multispectral bands, and with these we are able to produce 336 (= 8 x 7 x 6) RGB band combinations. ...
