Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space IV

Abstract:

This paper describes the potential for the Department of Defense (DOD) to support other government agencies in the management of national and worldwide environmental programs. The DOD space-based remote sensing program must complement other programs, rather than replace or duplicate them. This may include applying defense-related remote sensing to civil and environmental functions; using DOD sensors for civil applications; and expanding the role of the Environmental Task Force (ETF).
