Remote Sensing: It’s Not Just for the Remote Sensing Specialist Anymore …

Have you noticed?? The Geospatial Revolution is closely tied to new capabilities of earth observing sensors, as well as greater access to their data. The collection of remotely sensed data from a variety of platforms, including aircraft, commercial satellites, ground-based vehicles, and unmanned aerial systems (UAS), is increasing exponentially. Many of the sensors, such as lidar, thermal, multispectral and hyperspectral ...

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 ...
