© 2014 IEEE. Public policies and private initiatives share the will to explore outer space and to monitor the Earth from space sensors. Recent years have seen an increased number of space missions, while the sensors on board aircrafts or spacecrafts have also significantly improved their acquisition capabilities. Given this huge volume of remote sensing data and the detailed characteristics of the acquired images, a data compression process is in order to allow as large a transmission rate as possible.
