BNSC is to conduct a study of future Earth Observation technology requirements for instruments to fly on future missions.  Such information will be of value in guiding the direction of future national programmes, ensuring that programmes targeted at academic and industrial communities are complementary.  This study will primarily address future requirements for scientific missions and so will be particularly relevant for future targeting of BNSC’s New Techniques for Observational Needs (NEWTON) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) New Observing Techniques (NOT) scheme.

Closing date for submission of proposals is midday 23 August 2002
