To­geth­er with the Ger­man Re­mote Sens­ing Da­ta Cen­ter (DFD), the In­sti­tute forms the Earth Ob­ser­va­tion Cen­ter (EOC) - the com­pe­tence cen­tre for Earth ob­ser­va­tion in Ger­many.

The Remote Sensing Technology Institute (IMF) is an institute of the German Aerospace Center DLR. It is located in Oberpfaffenhofen (near Munich), Berlin-Adlershof and Neustrelitz (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) as well as an office in Bremen. Together, IMF and the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) comprise the Earth Observation Center EOC – a centre of competence for Earth observation in Germany.

Research and development activities at IMF are dedicated to remote sensing technology. Algorithms and methods are developed to configure processors that extract relevant geoinformation from remote sensing data. Operational processors are the prerequisite for optimal utilisation of modern sensor systems for advanced scientific purposes and numerous applications. These processors are integrated into the payload ground segments of DFD and industry for national and international Earth observation missions.

The IMF was founded on 1 January 2000 from parts of the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) and the former Institutes of Optoelectronics and Space Sensor Technology, on the recommendation of a structural commission advising on the reorganisation of the fields of Earth observation, communications and navigation.
