Abstract: The adoption of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) for environmental monitoring is currently considered one of the most challenging applications for this emerging technology. These set of sensors that collaboratively perform embedded sensing and communication tasks owned features such as low cost, flexibility, fault tolerance, high sensing fidelity, creating many new and exciting applications for remote sensing and space industry where many essential phenomena have hardly been investigated. In this paper, a state-of-art survey clearly shows the WSNs have been successfully implemented and tested in remote sensing applications. Morevever, the developments and challenges in design WSNs for space-based application are discussed in order boost the use of WSNs in remote sensing and space industry in Egypt.
Keywords: wireless sensor networks; WSNs; remote sensing; satellite; space industry.
