Summary:
In this new edition of an SPIE bestseller, R. C. Olsen examines the definition and uses of remote sensing from a military perspective. The book discusses the instruments and principles that support a wide range of systems: optical, thermal, and radar. The text focuses on satellites-including power, data storage, and telemetry systems-because this knowledge is important for the development of new remote sensing systems. A new chapter dedicated to LiDAR develops the necessary physics for each domain and presents a few appropriate operational systems. A radiometry component has been added to the infrared (IR), radar (SAR), and LiDAR sections. Full-color images, as well as detailed examples and problems sets, make this a valuable textbook for students and engineers alike.
