It includes two hyperspectral satellites and two SAR (synthetic aperture radar) satellites by 2021, for conducting remote-sensing over the South China Sea, the report said.
"The key finding of the paper is that when you don't have any ground data represented in remote-sensing models, they do tend to produce risk estimates that appear to be biased toward the null," Jerrett explains--in other words, the actual relative risk may be underestimated.
The Remote-Sensing Satellite 1 is the second Chinese satellite to be ordered by Pakistan.
Developed and produced by the China Academy of Space Technology, a subsidiary of the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, it is the country's first such orbiter that can acquire high-resolution data through remote-sensing, marking a key technological leap forward.

Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp said on Monday that the company will construct the next generation commercial remote-sensing satellite, called WorldView-3, anticipated to be launched in 2014.
Examples of image processing methodologies discussed include random forest classification of remote sensing data, supervised image classification of multi- spectral images based on statistical machine learning, change-detection methods for location of mines in synthetic aperture radar imagery, data fusion for remote-sensing applications, and quality assessment of remote-sensing multi-band optical images.
In Part I, 'Foundations', Campbell covers traditional topics such as the history of remote sensing and key remote-sensing concepts.
It's true that remote-sensing products have been introduced in the long-term care market--and the technology seems to be getting better and better--but widespread availability and use should not be expected, at least for a while.
