The global remote sensing technology market is expected to increase rapidly in the next few years. The rising governmental focus on developing earth observation solutions to extract information from aerial and satellite imaging systems creates a vast demand for remote sensing technology. Also, the growing emphasis on solving end-to-end remote sensing problems, using a science and engineering approach influences market dynamics.

Remote sensing technology has evolved significantly in recent years, offering impressive surveying techniques with many different advantages. This technology can survey large and inaccessible areas, and the data gathered from remote sensing can be used and analyzed in a wide range of applications multiple times.

For example, data collected by remote sensors used to survey a construction site can also be used to analyze and plan new roads. The data collected from forests to identify the risk of natural calamities, such as wildfires, could also be used to monitor biodiversity.

Some specific uses of remote sensing imagery in the planet/earth monitoring include mapping large forest fires from the space, helping track clouds to predict the weather, and watching erupting volcanoes & dust storms, tracking the city growth & changes in farmland or forests, and discovering & mapping of the rugged topography of the ocean floor.

There are many researches ongoing currently to improve remote sensing functionality. For instance, researchers at the Resilient Infrastructure and Disaster Response (RIDER) Center of the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering are investigating better ways to predict the probable areas where road-clogging debris will be most severe after tropical cyclones. This research is especially relevant as remote sensing research improves hurricane response.
