"Commercial satellite imagery" is the first book to examine the role of satellites in the monitoring of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. Expert contributions cover, amongst other issues: the need for new verification techniques, the use of commercial satellite imagery in strengthening safeguards against nuclear proliferation, image processing, cost benefit analysis.
Case studies, including a country case study from Canada, highlight applications of commercial satellite imagery. The book also includes a discussion of the legal aspects of using satellite imagery in the monitoring of nuclear power. The combination of both technical and policy issues has resulted in a comprehensive book of considerable importance for everyone involved in nuclear arms control, as well as practitioners and researchers in the field of remote sensing and image analysis.
