Remote Sensing

Observing Earth's water cycle from space
A satellite system comprising active and passive microwave remote sensors enables synchronous accurate acquisition of key elements in the Earth's water cycle.

The Visible and Near-IR Imaging Spectrometer onboard China's Chang'E 3 lunar rover uses non-collinear acousto-optic tunable filters to make mineralogical and compositional measurements.
