Riverside Research Authoring First-of-its-kind Remote Sensing Textbook

Through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the Department of Engineering and Physics at the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT), Riverside Research is authoring a graduate-level textbook series entitled The Phenomenology of Intelligence-Focused Remote Sensing. The first volume, Electro-Optical Remote Sensing, scheduled for release in 2013, is the first to include phenomenology, sensors, and intelligence applications under one cover. It builds on over a decade of specialized instruction in remote sensing technologies and applications to the Intelligence Community (IC).

Electro-Optical Remote Sensing is uniquely designed to support a graduate-level student population comprised of active duty military members, federal government employees, and government contractors supporting the IC mission. Authored by Riverside Research’s senior-most intelligence experts as a strategic initiative under the company’s Independent Research and Development Program, this first-of-its-kind textbook thoroughly discusses all the necessary elements of electro-optical data collection, including target characterization, radiative transfer, optics, detectors, and processing techniques.

For AFIT, Electro-Optical Remote Sensing will be the only textbook of its kind capable of supporting their current DOD-focused curriculum that includes five didactic classes delivered via unclassified lecture and four laboratory classes held at the Collateral Secret level.
