10 August 1992 Government regulation of private remote-sensing systems
Author Affiliations +
When private remote-sensing systems were first authorized in 1984, Congress imposed regulatory requirements intended to protect national security and international obligations. This article reviews the legal framework that now exists under the Land Remote-Sensing Commercialization Act of 1984, and discusses recent efforts to amend the Act in order to remove regulatory restrictions that inhibit development of private remote-sensing systems.
