Remote sensing industry welcomes revamped regulations - SpaceNews

WASHINGTON — Satellite imaging companies are embracing long-awaited reforms to commercial remote sensing regulations, although one member of Congress doesn’t think the changes go far enough.

The Commerce Department, which regulates commercial remote sensing satellite systems through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, released a final rule revising commercial remote sensing regulations May 19.

Babin was one of the sponsors of the American Space Commerce Free Enterprise Act, a 2017 bill that, among other things, would have updated the 1992 Land Remote Sensing Policy Act that serves as the basis for NOAA’s regulation of commercial remote sensing regulation.

“If American commercial remote sensing companies are to lead in the 21st century, Congress must update the Land Remote Sensing Policy Act to reflect today’s technological landscape,” Babin said.

While he said the revised regulations are consistent with what his bill would do, the legislation includes additional measures, such as moving commercial remote sensing licensing to the Office of Space Commerce in the Commerce Department, and elevating its director to a Senate-confirmed assistant secretary post.
