DOT-NASA Partnership: Transportation Applications of Remote Sensing

DOT-NASA Partnership: Transportation Applications of Remote Sensing

Combining NASA expertise in remote sensing with DOT's knowledge of transportation, this program addresses requirements for applications of remote sensing to traffic monitoring, environmental assessment, infrastructure management, and other areas. Managed by RITA, the program has two parts:

University consortia programs to advance the technology base : University consortia serve as one-stop centers for technical assistance to state and local agencies on remote sensing applications in specific areas of expertise.

Short-term application projects carried out by service providers and industries : These efforts demonstrate on-site application of remote sensing to transportation.
