Landsat 9 Missions

Landsat 9 Missions

Development of the OLI-2 and TIRS-2 instruments is progressing, and both are on target for integration with the spacecraft in mid-2019. The instruments are rebuilds of those onboard Landsat 8; however, TIRS-2 has improved stray light performance through improved telescope baffling and improved position encoder for the scene select mechanism, both issues on the Landsat 8 TIRS instrument. The Landsat 9 ground system and Mission Operations Center (MOC) are progressing through their respective milestones.  Landsat 9 remains on schedule for a December 2020 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA. This continuation of the Landsat Program will enable USGS and NASA to help the world observe, understand, and manage natural systems by archiving long-term records of the Earth’s surface.

Upcoming Landsat 9 milestones include:

July 11-13, 2017:                     Landsat Science Team Meeting
July 18-20, 2017:                    Spacecraft Preliminary Design Review
Summer 2017:                        Mission Operations Center (MOC) System Requirements Review (SRR)
September 12-14, 2017:          Landsat 9 Mission Preliminary Design Review

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is requesting information from the land imaging community for user requirements for future Landsat systems. The USGS Land Remote Sensing Program has collected a diverse set of U.S. Federal civil user measurement needs for moderate-resolution land imaging to help formulate future Landsat missions.

The primary objective of this RFI is to determine if these needs are representative of the broader Landsat user community, including, but not limited to, private sector, government agencies, non-governmental organizations and academia, both domestic and foreign. Responses to this RFI will be considered along with other inputs in future system formulation. To view the RFI go to www.fedconnect.net, click on "Search Public Opportunities Only", then choose search by "Reference Number" which is G17PS00634.
