The NASA Direct Readout Conference (NDRC) Organizing Committee held the first in a series of webinars to facilitate communications among, and provide updates to, the Real-time (RT) and Near Real-time (NRT) remote sensing user communities. Technology updates presented at the first webinar included Fire Science Algorithms and Products, as well as the new Multi-Angle Implementation of Atmospheric Correction (MAIAC) Algorithm to significantly improve atmospheric correction for surface reflectance products.
The Ninth International NASA Direct Readout Conference (NDRC-9) held in Valladolid, Spain in June 2016 provided a venue for awareness and exchange of remote sensing science research and corresponding RT/NRT applications using Direct Readout and other low latency Earth observation capabilities. A key outcome of the conference was the need to facilitate forums for ongoing communications among RT/NRT data practitioners, organizations that enable decision support system operations, and the end user community.
Webinar Series Details
The webinar series will focus on NDRC-9 themes, topics and priorities, including updates on relevant science, algorithms, technologies, applications and systems The frequency and topics of webinars in this series will be based on input articulated by interested participants. Webinars will initially concentrate on Land discipline applications and broader topics, but may be expanded to include Atmosphere and Ocean disciplines. Presentations, action items, and relevant meeting notes will be published on the NASA DRL Web Portal.
