Radiant Earth Foundation CEO Anne Hale Miglarese Appointed to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Commercial Remote Sensing Federal Advisory Committee

WASHINGTON, Dec. 13, 2018 – Non-profit Radiant Earth Foundation announced today that its Founder and CEO, Anne Hale Miglarese, has been appointed to the Federal Advisory Committee on Commercial Remote Sensing (ACCRES) to serve for the next two years.

The ACCRES Charter is as an expert and independent advisory body.  ACCRES members evaluate economic, technological, and institutional developments relating to commercial remote sensing, and submit recommendations to the Under Secretary on promising new ideas and approaches for Federal policies and programs.  ACCRES serves as a discussion forum on issues involving the relationship between industry activities and government policies, programs, and regulatory requirements. The Committee is comprised of seventeen leaders from across the remote sensing community, including commercial satellite operators, satellite manufacturers, space policy experts, legal professionals, and academics.

Ms. Miglarese has worked in the field of remote sensing for over 30 years, first with the Federal Government and then the private sector, and now as the CEO of a non-profit. Before establishing Radiant Earth Foundation in 2016, Ms. Miglarese led two commercial remote sensing companies and worked for, as well as directed, several of NOAA’s remote sensing and GIS programs from 1994 to 2004. Ms. Miglarese is the Founding Chairperson of the National Geospatial Advisory Committee, a role that taught her the importance of an engaged, balanced and thoughtful membership in a Federal Advisory Committee to maximize impact.

“I welcome the opportunity to support the committee during this exciting time in the remote sensing industry, which is experiencing dramatic increases in the supply of satellite data, rapid innovation made possible by cloud computing and machine learning, and new entrants in the market,” says Ms. Miglarese. “As a neutral organization, Radiant Earth Foundation has a unique outlook on the needs of both the end-user and the remote sensing operators. Understanding these dynamics allows us to convene collaborative activities to benefit commercial, non-profit, and government data providers and users alike.”

Radiant Earth Foundation harnesses the power of geospatial data to drive solutions for the world’s most difficult problems. Their goals are to aggregate the world’s open Earth imagery, provide easy access, and guide users on how to analyze imagery. The team also works closely with commercial companies to expose its data to the Radiant Earth Foundation’s platform users.
