  1. Accurate Nightlight for Satellite Calibration for Weather and Climate Applications

    SBC: INNOVATIVE IMAGING & RESEARCH CORP            Topic: 843

    This project’s aim is to develop an Accurate Active Light Source (AALS) that can be fielded at selected calibration sites to address NOAA’s unmet needs and improve the calibration of the Suomi NPP VIIRS Day Night Band (DNB) operating in the high gain stage (HGS) under low light level conditions. The DNB HGS has extreme low-light sensitivity that enables a new generation of nighttime imaging. M ...

  3. Smart Module Commercial Development Research

    SBC: Mechelen, LLC            Topic: 852

    Most sensor data collection systems are unique to a given application, sensors do not easily transcend across applications or platforms. Smart sensor development improved the ability to utilize common communications to a certain degree, where most used RS-232 or RS-485 type communications protocols, but differences are still found and no uniformity exists in the commercial markets. The Smart Modul ...
