Science Applications International Corporation has launched a Web-based processing system delivering custom Landsat imagery directly to customer desktops.

Landsat programme is a series of Earth-observing satellite missions jointly managed by NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Landsat satellites collect images of Earth from space that can be used to evaluate changes to our planet caused by natural processes and human practices. In January of this year the USGS opened access to the Landsat archive allowing users to download scenes in a standard format. SAIC's new system fills a need in the Landsat user community by providing value-added processing of these standard products.

SAIC's custom imagery can be used by land-use/cover professionals (researchers, resource managers and policy makers) for crop management, drought monitoring, climate change detection, disaster relief, water resource management and other applications. With SAIC's new system, users can browse the USGS archive, select specific scene(s), and apply a powerful array of spatial and spectral processing options to generate products tailored to meet their needs.

The new SAIC system provides fast and reliable data supported by experienced scientists and imaging experts, leveraging the 37-year-old USGS Landsat archive made available by the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, SD.
