Requirements Capabilities & Analysis for Earth Observations
RCA-EO analysis capabilities are being designed to help guide management decisions by those who manage or develop EO systems, products, and services, and to users of these same products and services. From a national perspective, RCA-EO analyses will provide a better understanding of Earth observing systems and their benefits to society, and can inform the development of more responsive and cost-effective Earth observing systems.
USGS Analysis Goals
Select requirements and the EO capabilities which can meet or partially meet those requirements
Identify the best capability to meet a requirement with a measure of how much better the best capability is than other capabilities
Compare requirements and capabilities to identify applicable EO system solutions and/or technology gaps
Analyze value tree information to identify how EO systems are supporting Federal needs
