The U.S. commercial remote sensing industry is providing immense benefit to Americans for national security, safety of citizens, tracking and monitoring of natural resources, and providing geospatial information that we all use every day. It has not only experienced a growth spurt in number of satellites blanketing the globe but technology advancements have also enabled higher resolution and a growing diversity of sensors to detect new information about our planet.
The U.S. regulatory and licensing environment must keep up with the many technological and market changes in commercial remote sensing. Focusing on permissive regulations, and responsive and transparent licensing for commercial remote sensing enables the U.S. to maintain its competitive edge while growing talent and jobs.
The Satellite Industry Association is pleased to bring together a panel of commercial remote sensing providers and experts to discuss the growing role of remote sensing in our way of life and the challenges and opportunities with regards to U.S. regulations and licensing; we hope you can join us for this informational panel session.
