New IR polarimeter for improved detection of oil on water
Results from a series of tests in a large saltwater tank demonstrate that IR polarimetric images provide much better contrast between oil and water than conventional visible and thermal IR measurements.
Optical components move a high-resolution laser-scan pattern contained in a small field of view across a larger area, eliminating the need for heavy steering mechanisms on platforms such as helicopters.

A new aircraft-certified instrument is suitable for unattended operation on the Polar 6 aircraft, and will ultimately be redesigned as a future microsatellite payload.
4 January 2017
A new instrument operates in the far-UV wavelength range and is compatible with a range of satellite platforms for science and space-operation support endeavors.
