NASA/USGS to Discuss NASA Sustainable Land Imaging Architecture Study on Sept. 18 via Live-streamed Industry and Partner Day

Aug 28, 2013

On September 18, NASA will host an event in which leadership from NASA and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) will provide details about NASA’s Sustainable Land Imaging Architecture Study to design and implement a spaceborne system to provide global, continuous Landsat-quality multispectral and thermal infrared measurements for at least the next 25 years.

Watch the event on NASA's USTREAM Channel (starting 1:30 p.m. EDT on September 18)

Event:  NASA's Sustainable Land Imaging Architecture Study Industry and Partner Day
Time:  1:00 – 4:30 p.m. EDT
Date:  Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Go to http://espd.gsfc.nasa.gov/landimagingstudy/ to view the agenda.

To spur innovation and increase efficiencies, the study will identify and evaluate a range of solutions including large and small dedicated spacecraft, formation flying, hosted instruments, and integration of other land imaging data sets, as available, as well as possible international and private sector collaborations.  

The study will include careful consideration of the current and future planned ground system capabilities provided by the established USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center.

The study must recognize that lowering the system’s cost to the nation is an important goal, and that implementing a system that stays within the allocated budget is an essential programmatic requirement for the U.S. government.

NASA and USGS staff will describe the upcoming planning timeline and identify opportunities and processes for providing input into the planning process.

Following this public forum, NASA will release a Request for Information (RFI) to seek new ideas for mission elements and describe the process for submitting your ideas so that NASA/USGS teams may consider your innovative solutions. 

The POC for this notice is David Jarrett david.b.jarrett@nasa.gov.
