This is a Request for Information – User Needs for Future Landsat Missions. The U.S. Geological Survey (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. Please see the RFI for full details.

Please pass along to your land imaging constituents this information.  Any inquiries about the RFI can be sent to the Contracting Officer, Vickie Floyd (, during the open RFI period.  Responses are due no later than 11:00 am ET, July 14, 2017.
