TerraSTAR IR Beacon Lightning Talk -

As national leaders in remote sensing phenomenology and applications, we understand the challenge of ensuring the radiometric and geolocation accuracy of remote sensors. Through our IRAD program, we created a design to address this challenge, which uses unique heating elements and parabolic reflectors to steer a narrow beam of broadband energy at target airborne and overhead systems. The prototype received subsequent customer investment and is now programmed for CONUS-wide deployment beginning in 2025–2026.
