First-of-its-kind Advanced Remote Sensing Textbook Available Now

This valuable resource is available for pre-order at Faculty, staff, students, and personnel across the spectrum of academia, government, and industry can now take advantage of this unique, technical reference.

Pre-release versions of the textbook debuted at previous US Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) GEOINT symposiums, where it garnered attention and enthusiasm from many GEOINT professionals. Most notably, USGIF CEO Keith Masback, USGIF Board of Directors’ Chairman Jeffrey Harris, and Advanced Technical Intelligence Association Executive Director Hon. Jim Longley, Jr. have praised its content and composition.

“'The Phenomenology of Intelligence-focused Remote Sensing' represents a truly meaningful milestone in the evolution of teaching the technical components of GEOINT phenomenology,” said Masback. “It is fully comprehensive, yet written in a readily understood, engaging style. This text should be part of every GEOINT professional’s library and will serve as a superb basic or applied remote sensing reference.”

Authored by Riverside Research senior technical experts, Drs. Howard Evans and James Lange, with Dr. James Schmitz under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with AFIT, this graduate-level text is the first to include phenomenology, sensors, and intelligence applications under one cover. By pooling their collective knowledge, which spans over three decades of specialized instruction in electro-optical remote sensing technologies and geospatial applications, Riverside Research senior technical experts thoroughly discuss all the necessary elements of spatial, spectral, and temporal signature collection in the visible and infrared.
