Narrative: This presentation reviews the evolution of capabilities delivered by electro-optical satellite imagery from the perspective of resolution, accuracy, speed of delivery and content.  Each ‘era’ has had a profound impact on the value satellite imagery can have on a wide variety of user missions.  With numerous examples from the US commercial satellite industry, the presentation will provide attendees with a good understanding of the many improvements since the launch of Ikonos in 1999 as well as a glimpse into the future of earth observation.

Versions of this presentation have been delivered to commercial and government audiences around the world as part of the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation’s (USGIF) Electro-Optical Working Group.
