SSE 660 Spacecraft Sensors and Remote Sensing

(3-0-3) Students will investigate the technologies involved in monitoring Earth systems from space platforms and in measuring spacecraft environment parameters critical to the health and safety of a spacecraft. In addition to the environment, gathering information from other sensors is the primary function of most satellite missions. Students will investigate the parameters and considerations involved in designing and using an effective sensor for a particular mission. Remote sensing techniques associated with multispectral imaging, RADAR, and LiDAR will be investigated.
