    Title

    Legal Implications of Evolving Remote Sensing Technologies

    Description

    New and evolving remote sensing technologies pertinent to all aspects of remote sensing activities are rapidly progressing and being deployed worldwide. A wider and greater availability of such technology is reinforced by new space-based systems, including smallsats, constellations and launch vehicles, data collection and storage capabilities. These advances are catalyzing a new generation of national laws and regulations while adding new issues for existing international space law to resolve or address. The U.S. is in the process of legislating an entirely new remote sensing law. New Zealand has new laws applicable to launching activities that take into account the explosive growth of small satellite data collection. Portugal has new legislation addressing the commercial potential of these activities. At the international level, the question of international responsibility under the Outer Space Treaty becomes ever more relevant. Furthermore, states need to address how to “authorize and continually supervise” remote sensing systems that use new technologies. Legal aspects regarding access to and processing of remote sensing data are also changing as more data is generated by the private sector for government use at both national and international levels. This session invites authors to contribute to these and other legal aspects of remote sensing.
