Earth remote sensing requirements that may be expected for Space Station are presented. They include research requirements for more detailed spectral resolution, atmospheric effects on information extraction, and much more thorough probing of irradiance angle -view angle information content in scene radiance than has been done to date. Instrument development requirements for unmanned commercial and governmental satellite systems are described. Requirements posed by NASA global habitability research efforts and Earth data systems developments such as the Pilot Oceans Data System, the Pilot Climate Data System, and the Pilot Land Data System are considered with a view to the role of Earth satellites of many kinds as aids to better understanding of the planet and its natural systems.
