Abstract: The Remote Sensing Hazard Guidance System (RSHGS) is under development as part of a NASA REASoN project at the University of South Carolina. NASA and Kinetx staff are assisting in the development of the project. The RSHGS is a web-based SDSS guiding hazards managers in the process of acquiring and analyzing remotely sensed imagery for a hazard event. The intelligence subsystem will use the ... GIS-based modeling subsystem and satellite query subsystem to automatically determine optimum sensors/satellites for the hazard requirements, geographic study area, and time frame (e.g., 48 hours). The user of this system will also be able to independently query the current and future locations and collection abilities of any unclassified satellite-borne sensor. A GIS-based modeling subsystem will predict the area of impact from the hazard event.
