7 October 2009 Remote sensing satellite constellation for world-wide wild fire monitoring
Author Affiliations +
Satellite remote sensing can provide continuous surveillance to detect, characterize, and map wild fires, agricultural fires, and land management fires. Fire management challenges require additional capability to allow rapid revisit rates, rapid tasking, and data delivery to the field sufficient for fire management agencies in modern and developing nations worldwide. An analysis and description of the required constellation of satellites and sensors is given with consideration of tasking and data delivery.
