The House of Representatives will soon vote on a bill that outlines steps to commercialize the land remote-sensing system. The bill follows attempts last year to commercialize both the land and meteorological remote sensing satellite systems. Meanwhile, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has received bids from seven private companies interested in operating Landsat. The bids resulted from a request for proposals issued by the agency earlier this year. Commercialization of the meteorological satellite system was blocked in November.
