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


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).
