SSI's R&D in remote sensing addresses scientific and engineering problems in using optical radiation for characterizing remote objects and the intervening atmosphere.
We have developed and supported many US Government and industry computer codes for calculating and displaying target images and spectral signatures at wavelengths ranging from the ultraviolet through the thermal infrared. These include QUID, SPIRITS, GUIDES, MCScene, and kURT. We are also active in the development of algorithms, such as the SMACC endmember code, for spectral image exploitation in applications such as target and trace gas detection, terrain classification and shadow removal. Applications include:
Building on technology developed in collaboration with the Air Force Research Laboratory, SSI scientists have used passive imagery to visualize and measure object vibrations and other subtle fluctuations. Applications include remote sensing from space and evaluating the integrity of mechanical structures and individual components.
SSI has played key roles in planning and data analysis for measurement programs, including major atmospheric and space experiments carried out by the US Government. This experience can be applied to your measurement definition, planning, and analysis needs.
