  • Second, the two-way travel time of radiation from and back to the sensor can calculate the distance in active remote sensing systems, for example, Interferometric synthetic-aperture radar. (wikipedia.org)
  • In remote sensing, the electromagnetic radiation acts as the information carrier, with a distance of tens to thousands of kilometers distance between the sensor and the target. (wikipedia.org)
  • A suitable sensor sensitive to the particular wavelength region, according to the designated use, is selected and employed to collect the electromagnetic wave reflected or emitted from the target object. (wikipedia.org)
  • At the same time, it can detect things that other sensors cannot sense, or sometimes it can be the first sensor to recognize a potentially critical datum. (wikipedia.org)
  • data
  • Remote sensing in geology is remote sensing used in the geological sciences as a data acquisition method complementary to field observation, because it allows mapping of geological characteristics of regions without physical contact with the areas being explored. (wikipedia.org)
  • Remote sensing data can help studies involving geological mapping, geological hazards and economic geology (i.e., exploration for minerals, petroleum, etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • Remote sensing data is often visualized using Geographical Information System (GIS) tools. (wikipedia.org)
  • Geotechnical instrumentations, for example piezometer, tiltmeter and Global Positioning System (GPS), on the other hand, often refer to instruments installed to measure discrete point data, compared to imagery in remote sensing. (wikipedia.org)
  • The spacecraft carried one large and three small atmospheric probes, designed to collect data as they descended into the atmosphere of Venus. (wikipedia.org)
  • MASINT is defined as scientific and technical intelligence derived from the analysis of data obtained from sensing instruments for the purpose of identifying any distinctive features associated with the source, emitter or sender, to facilitate the latter's measurement and identification. (wikipedia.org)
  • He had heard about the controversial swept-wing theory of R. T. Jones at Langley, but seeing models of swept-wing aircraft and extensive supersonic wind-tunnel data generated by the Germans, the concept was decisively confirmed. (wikipedia.org)
  • mission
  • The mission was re-profiled in 1987 to use several gravitational slingshots, referred to as the Venus-Earth-Earth Gravity Assist or VEEGA maneuvers, to provide the additional velocity required to reach its destination. (wikipedia.org)
  • Due to overwork, Banks was given lighter duties, including a mission to Australia to advise on aircraft production and a job at the Import Duties Advisory Committee. (wikipedia.org)
