In this overview, reasons are provided on why we do need to place multi-modal, multi-band single and multiple pass POLinSAR monitoring platforms into air and space. The questions "on what POLinSAR monitoring can provide that POL-SAR and IN-SAR by themselves cannot accomplish" is assessed; whereupon facts and justifications on placing POL-IN-BISAR satellite clusters into space are presented. Reasons for this technology becoming a basic requirement for current, near-future and much more so for future all-day & night year around monitoring of the terrestrial covers are analyzed in view of the un-abating and uncontrollable terrestrial population explosion, which has, does and for ever will result in unavoidable conflicts deteriorating unfortunately at times into terrorism. The pertinent questions on how to reduce the exorbitant cost for initiating this "home-globe security protection" technology are therefore also broached, and the expected benefits are laid out. The pertinent National and International airborne and space borne multi-modal, multi-band SAR remote sensing and security conflict surveillance support agencies are herewith invited for co-sponsoring our proposal, which is timely and fleets of orbiting multi-band space-borne POLinSAR platforms are urgently required.
