Remote Sensing Science Program

The Remote Sensing Science program provides a foundation of scientific expertise that is key to rendering satellite data useful to the Government of Canada. The program encompasses experts in remote sensing technology, satellite signals, data methodologies, and the development of value-added image products, information, applications and services.  Canada Centre for Remote Sensing scientists within RSS work in partnership with many other departments, as well as with academia, private sector and international collaborators.  In addition to transforming data from existing satellite sensors, the RSS program also focuses on the development of next-generation satellite sensors, and the scientific preparations for effectively and immediate use of data from sensors that will be launched shortly.
