Title: Licensing of Private Land Remote-Sensing Space Systems 
Abstract: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA's) National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service proposes to revise its final rule issued on April 26, 2006, addressing the licensing of private land remote sensing space systems. The purpose of this revision is to modify NOAA's requirements for the licensing, monitoring and compliance of operators of private land remote sensing space systems under title II of the Land Remote Sensing Policy Act of 1992. These modifications are intended to address changes in remote sensing technology and business practices since the issuance of the final rule. The revision is intended to facilitate the further development of the U.S. commercial remote sensing industry, while preserving essential U.S. national security interests, foreign policy, and international obligations.
