FROM THE GENERAL CONFERENCE CHAIRS
As conference chairs for the 39th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing we would like to extend a welcome to all of the delegates to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where we will be highlighting a new era in remote sensing technology. Many new missions and new technologies are being developed and have been or will be deployed soon. Hence, the time is right to explore these new opportunities in more depth.

These are exciting times for remote sensing research and applications in Canada. The soon to be launching of the RADARSAT Constellation Mission will mean a continued Canadian imaging microwave presence in space. Canada has also been actively participating in aereal surveys in preparation of the Surface Water and Ocean Topography mission. Canadians are also leaders in the development and application of airborne active and passive sensor technologies, multisensor UAV platform development that promises to revolutionize high resolution data acquisition and research. Applications from marine, arctic and northern surveillance, environmental modelling and monitoring, and resource exploration are also coming of age. It is our hope that the meetings here will facilitate an exploration of ideas and forge productive partnerships.
