    SOFTWARE Customers that need reliable software solutions for data acquisition and analysis, modeling, or instrument control turn to Sigma Space. Our software team focuses on systems for airborne and spaceflight instruments, and has expertise in architectural definition, algorithm design and analysis, and model-driven software development. His research interest is in the broad discipline of applied remote sensing and atmospheric sciences, with a special emphasis on mapping and modeling forest fires and their emissions. Dr. Stuefer is also a professional pilot. For this project, he has custom-built an Aviat Husky A1 aircraft and he will pilot the airborne data collection campaigns. Lidar (/ ˈ l aɪ d ɑːr /, also LIDAR, LiDAR, and LADAR) is a method for measuring distances by illuminating the target with laser light and measuring the reflection with a sensor. Differences in laser return times and wavelengths can then be used to make digital 3-D representations of the target. It has terrestrial, airborne, and mobile applications. Glossary of terms common to GHRC and other DAACs and Earth science.

The introduction of digital systems instead of analog ones has created a major separation in the aviation technology. to extend the data acquisition system and problems that are unique to. A fourth generation Airborne Research Instrumentation System (ARIS IV) has been designed and developed for use on three smaller aircraft.

The purpose of the onboard data acquisition system is to record on magnetic tape the output of various instruments, while simultaneously computing and displaying in real time selected meteorological parameters.

The need for a new generation data system Author: R. Friesen, R. Brown. A 12bit, analog to digital 32 channel, is used to acquire voltage measurements at frequencies up to Hz.

Digital data acquisition is available on 25 serial (RS/RS) ports at speed of up to Mbps and on 2 ARINC ports. Special M interface cards are used to acquire data from CAPS probe, the Applanix System and PMS probes. Atmospheric Research using the DaqBook A NASA laboratory employed a notebook-PC-based data acquisition system to gather data for atmo-spheric research.

The notebook-based system helped reduce the size, weight, and cost of the airborne test application, while concurrently increasing its performance, data storage, and display capabilities. for Atmospheric Research for Dr. Melvyn A.

Highly sensitive and accurate measurements of numerous trace gases are required to further our understanding of atmospheric processes. Tunable diode laser systems, which offer many advantages in this regard, can be designed for reliable field measurements on both ground-based and aircraft platforms.

Abstract. Between 6 September and 15 Octobermeteorological measurement flights were conducted above the German Bight in the framework of the project WIPAFF (Wind Park Far Field). The scope of the measurements was to study long-range wakes with an extent larger than 10 km behind entire wind parks, and to investigate the interaction of wind parks and the marine atmospheric.
