Partnering to Build a Remote Sensing Radiometry Lab at SDSU

By • Jan 21st, 2011 • Category: Highlights

The Remote Sensing Technologies (RST) Project met with Dr. Dennis Helder, Associate Dean for Research for the College of Engineering at SDSU, to discuss possibilities for merging Dr. Helder’s initiative to establish an Imaging Science Institute (ISI) at SDSU with the ongoing USGS interest in a radiometry laboratory for measuring radiometric, spectral, and spatial performance of sensors. In response to request from LRS, RST is working on moving radiometry equipment available from NASA Stennis to SDSU to establish a vicarious calibration capability. RST discussed with Dr. Helder the plans for the Stennis equipment as well as other topics that included the opportunities for remote sensing research, including National Science Foundation (NSF) grants. The two groups explored potential accomplishments through partnering and leveraging resources between academia, government and industry.
