Contract: NAS8-02015
Award Amount: $599,308.00
 

Abstract:

The proposal is to develop a lightning mapping system (LMS) camera based on a solid state array of smart-pixels that can detect, locate and quantify lightning transient events in the focal plane pixels without reading out the array. This concept is applicable to lightning mapping systems operating from synchronous orbit as well as low Earth orbit. In Phase I the proposed lightning/meteor detector smart-pixel concept will be developed into a conceptual design that will be refined, built and evaluated in Phase II. Phase II will include designing, building and evaluating a prototype LMS.
