This thesis examines the essential use of Multispectral Imagery (MSI) land remote sensing data in support of future military operations, specifically naval operations. The importance of proper management of the LANDSAT program and funding are discussed in depth. Results of surveys from naval intelligence specialists and operators express the interest of the Fleet in the need for MSI for future military operations. To continue its lead in remote sensing systems, the U.S. must consider foreign competition, such as that from the French SPOT system. Examination of this competition, how the U.S. will cope with it, and planning implications from the spread of MSI capabilities are discussed. Recommendations for the future of the LANDSAT program and MSI are listed.
