The Landsat system, formerly the Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS), comprises three major components: two spacecraft, remote sensors, and the ground data-handling system. The overall system is designed to perform three functions: the acquisition of multispectral images, the collection of data from the remotely located sensors, and the production of photographic and digital data.
