Technologies enabling the deployment of an expandable telescope from a small spacecraft could pave the way for the development of other payloads for small satellites.
The SST awaits nightfall to be tasked with scanning space from its location atop the Atom Site, a high-altitude observation point in New Mexico that provides a view of the sky that is virtually untouched by light pollution.
space situational awareness
A unique curved focal surface enables a highly sensitive telescope capable of surveying broad swaths of deep space to detect the faintest objects in the night sky.
Each BEACON instrument has two cylinders outfitted with copper electrodes. As the cylinders spin synchronously, the electrical field produces a signal between the electrodes; from this signal, the strength and direction of the E-field are computed.
weather
Researchers are creating a balloon-carried instrument for predicting the likelihood of lightning in a storm cloud.
