THE NEXT DECADE OF SATELLITE REMOTE SENSING

In 1978, NASA will launch Landsat-C, Seasat-A, and the Heat Capacity Mapping Mission. For Landsat-D, to be launched about 1981, NASA plans to carry a Thematic Mapper with seven spectral bands and perhaps at Multispectral Scanner. The U.S. Geological Survey has proposed a three-band linear array sensor. Large format cartographic cameras will be carried as cargo bay payload on Shuttle sortie missions, as crew compartment payload on the European Spacelab, and as payload for unmanned spacecraft launched and serviced by the Shuttle. Geosynchronous real-time observing systems may be expected in the mid 1980s.
