Earth Observation / Remote Sensing - ORBIT CS

EO and Remote Sensing


The earth is constantly monitored and analyzed by governmental agencies, defense forces and the private sector. From weather monitoring to disaster control and oil & gas exploration, earth observation data affects many aspects of our lives.

What is common to all earth observation applications is the need for instant access to up-to-date data and images. This requires a fast and reliable communication link between orbiting satellites and the ground station.
