This annual gathering of the small satellite community provides a forum for government, industry and academia to review recent successes, explore new directions, and introduce emerging technologies in small spacecraft development. Hosted by Utah State University, representatives from all sectors will convene for a highly stimulating week of dialog and collaboration on small satellite missions.
The SDL-hosted Meeting on Characterization and Radiometric Calibration for Remote Sensing has expanded in scope and changed its name to include characterization and radiometric issues in the Microwave, IR, visible, and UV spectrums. This event provides a forum for those engaged in the calibration and evaluation of infrared radiometric sensors to discuss calibration issues pertinent to environmental and defense needs.
NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, has spotted its first never-before-seen near-Earth asteroid, the first of hundreds it is expected to find during its mission to map the whole sky in infrared light. There is no danger of the newly discovered asteroid hitting Earth.
The ASIC3 workshop is a follow‐on workshop to the meeting titled "Satellite Instrument Calibration for Measuring Global Climate Change" that was held in November 2002 at College Park, MD. The workshop is sponsored by NIST/ USMS and other government agencies such as NOAA, NASA and NPOESS and is being organized by Space Dynamics Laboratory of Utah State University. The primary objective of the ASIC3 workshop will be to formulate a national roadmap for a calibration system that will allow us to achieve the requirements associated with the monitoring of long-term global climate change. Workshop attendance is by invitation only.
