Environmental Sensing (E-Sensing)
Michigan Aerospace Corporation‘s Environmental Sensing Business Unit specializes in the development
of optical techniques and instrumentation for in-situ remote sensing and instrumentation to support LIDAR measurements:
- Remote in-situ detectors are compact fieldable detectors capable of unattended operation. Applications
for these detectors are wide-ranging and include detection of radiation for military personnel and first responders
and monitoring seismic activity.
- Instrumentation to support LIDAR activity includes the development of automated spectral
characterization instrumentation and advanced non-linear optical techniques to improve signal-to-noise ratio
of LIDAR signals.
- Instrumentation for CBRNE detection: Lidar, scanning, long and short range observation.
The E-Sensing division is constantly investigating new optical sensing techniques
and approaches for system monitoring, safety, and optimization.
