Facility Monitoring and Classification
Facility monitoring and classification is the development of a signature that identifies an installation by function, such as naval, air and ground activities; accordingly a surveillance plan is established. Changes can be detected by comparing current imagery coverage, with historical coverage and force structure.
Indications and Warning
The collection of Indications and Warning (I&W) information is necessary for monitoring and identifying situations that pose potential or actual threats to global interests or personnel.
Camouflage, Concealment and Deception
Applying advance techniques, imagery can be used to reveal concealment deception camouflage whether man-made or natural.
Command & Control, Mission Planning and Execution
Remote sensing imagery products enables the visualization of the threat and permits command and control & battle field monitoring, and proper utilization of the environment/terrain, which permits optimal deployment and facilitates the mission success. Targets will be identified and associated threats evaluated, and proper plans for force movement, targeting and damage assessment can be enforced. Imagery products support simulation modeling and exercises.
Monitoring of the Environment
Repeated images of large areas assess management & monitoring of environmental phenomena’s and disasters including floods, fires, earthquakes & volcanic activity, desertification, pollution…etc.
Exploration and Monitoring of Natural Resources
Images can help in exploration, monitoring and management of natural resources such as water, agriculture activity, oil & minerals.
Urban Planning and Mapping
High resolution and accurate images greatly supports urban planning, mapping, infrastructure management, locational services and site selection studies.
In Oceanography, Images can be used in ship routing, fisheries and sea state & temperature monitoring . Images of different kinds have been successfully used in scientific research and education.
