Aerospace S T is a direct indicator of comprehensive national power as well as S T strength. Satellite remote sensing is one of the most immediate and realistic productivity transformed from aerospace S T, which are composed of two essential steps, i.e., remote sensing data acquisition and transmission, as well as data processing and information extraction. As the steadily promotion of China’s Civil Space Infrastructure, the capacity of satellite image acquisition has been enhanced largely in terms of both quality and quantity. Meanwhile, image processing platform is considered to be a considerable infrastructure for satellite remote sensing application. The platform development is increasingly becoming an important factor which restricts application of satellite remote sensing and development of spatial information related business. This paper reviews state-of-the-art status and analyses the future trend from acquisition capacity and processing platform of satellite remote sensing image.
