Satellite-Based Sensor Working Group

The Satellite-Based Sensor Working Group (SBSWG) works to  gather, define, consolidate, and communicate data and information requirements of local user communities to decision-makers and agency personnel. As a national consortium, the AV SBSWG works closely with agency scientists and researchers to relay the availability of data and tools, and provide training, to local user communities. Through these efforts, the SBSWG will improve the nation’s capabilities and resources in land remote sensing by creating clear communication channels between all levels. This is accomplished through AV’s national and state consortia, by enhancing the coordination of information regarding the capability of existing remote sensing data products to meet the needs of its user constituencies (including academic, scientific, and local end user communities).
