High resolution thermal infrared remote sensing can have a wide range of applications. The Fuegosat Synthesis Study was funded by the European Space Agency (ESA), and the three main objectives were:
(i) review of applications and analyses for user requirements,
(ii) consolidation of user requirements over a broad range of applications, and
(iii) matching of user requirements and industry concepts to identify and outline a set of potential mission scenarios and their corresponding requirements.
These objectives were achieved by means of integrated studies within literature and ancillary documentation, and also by consultation of external experts. As a result, more than 30 applications were identified within three different fields:
(i) Land and Solid Earth,
(ii) Health and Hazards and
(iii) Security and Surveillance. A complete set of requirements (spatial, temporal, and radiometric resolution, algorithms used, supporting data, among others) were also provided. You can see at this link a recent publication about this project .
