A panel of senior managers and scientists will present their perspective on the challenges and opportunities of future spaced-based earth observation missions needed for providing more value-added applications addressing societal needs and increasing the scientific understanding of earth processes. They will describe how these challenges and opportunities are being addressed through changes to satellite architecture, sensor design, an evolving business model, and increased inter-agency and international cooperation, etc.
