Landsat Next is the next planned earth observing satellite mission collaboration between the USGS and NASA. The mission will ensure continuity of the longest space-based record of Earth’s land surface, and fundamentally transform the breadth and depth of actionable information freely available to end users. It will provide new capabilities for the next generation of Landsat users.
The enhanced spatial and temporal resolution of the 26-band “superspectral” Landsat Next constellation will unlock new applications for water quality, crop production and plant stress, climate and snow dynamics, soil health and other essential environmental variables.
The Landsat Next mission is planned to launch in late 2030.
