LANDSAT Remote Sensing

Landsat 7 Satellite Mission Planned by USGS and NASA

Scientists and engineers from the Department of the Interior’s U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and NASA are moving forward in planning a successor to the Landsat 7 satellite mission which was successfully launched from Vandenburg Air Force Base on April 15, 1999. With the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) satellite expected to launch 2011, the two agencies have announced their roles and responsibilities in mission development, subsystems procurement, and on-orbit operations.
