About Remote Sensing Satellite The technology of remote sensing satellite involves monitoring, observing, and gathering information of Earth (land and ocean) and the atmosphere with the help of inbuilt sensors that are integrated on satellite platforms. The successful aggregation of remotely procured data with traditional satellite systems for environmental assessment and resource management has led to the institutionalization of such technologies in the user domain. As of May 2017, there are approximately 1,460 satellites operational, out of which around 5%-6% are used for remote sensing applications, and approximately 10%-12% satellites are dedicated for Earth observation purposes.
