The Remote Sensing and Satellite Research Group (RSSRG), based at Curtin University in Bentley, Western Australia, is part of a national and international network of scientists that undertake quantitative research in the field of Earth observations from space.

RSSRG has long established links with key international agencies and universities. Access to international research cruises and undertaking research with advanced instruments deployed on NASA high altitude research aircraft are just two examples of such collaboration. Many of our graduate students visit and work in overseas laboratories under exchange arrangements and many accept post-doctoral or employment positions in these establishments on completion of their higher degrees.

RSSRG in recent times has been represented on several international remote sensing bodies including the International Radiation Commission (IRC), International Ocean Color Coordinating Group (IOCCG) and Education Working Group of the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) At the national level it is a participant in a number of Cooperative Research Centres and State – Federal research initiatives. RSSRG also coordinates a capacity building center in the Indian and Pacific Ocean regions for the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO.
