Abstract:

This paper describes the potential for the Department of Defense DoD to support other Government agencies in the management of national and worldwide environmental programs while continuing to conduct the traditional role of DoD as the military arm of the Federal Government. The DOD space-based remote sensing program must complement other programs, rather than replace or duplicate those programs. This may include defense-related remote sensing applying technologies to civil applications and environmental functions and ecological information needs using DoD sensors for civil applications and expanding the role of the Environmental Task Force ETF. Space-based remote sensing civil applications and environmental functions
