Ground support for Space Shuttle earth observations by the NASA environment remote sensing analysis facility (ERSAF)The functions and capabilities of the NASA Environment Remote Sensing Analysis Facility (ERSAF) located at the Johnson Space Center are described. ERSAF provides dedicated support to earth-observation activities and Earth-looking payloads conducted aboard the Space Shuttle. This support merges environmental satellite imagery with high-resolution film products and digital imagery acquired aboard the Space Shuttle. ERSAF utilizes several computer systems with specialized software to process and analyze environmental information as well as data acquired from the Space Shuttle. These computer systems and the image analysis capabilities are discussed.
