Commercial and Government Researchers Move Toward Collaborative Satellite Calibration

Paper

On a rapidly changing Earth, space-based imaging provides one of the most critical inputs to our scientific understanding of the whole Earth system. With the rapid increase in the number of medium- to high-resolution imaging sensors, there is increasing need for standard calibration methodology. An increase in sensor fusion, in which researchers […]

SkySat-3 Demonstrates Asteroid Imaging

Paper

The proliferation of small satellites may make it easier to track near-Earth objects—asteroids and other potentially hazardous objects that could impact our Planet.
