Program ObjectiveThis program investigates fundamental issues concerning remote sensing and the physics of imaging, including image formation processes, non-imaging sensing, propagation of electromagnetic radiation, the interaction of radiation with matter, remote target detection and identification, the effect of the atmosphere or space environment on imaging systems and sensors, and the detection and tracking of resident space objects. Proposals are sought in all areas of ground, air, and space-based remote sensing and imaging, but particularly in the detection, characterization, and identification of space objects. This program includes the investigation of fundamental processes that affect space situational awareness. Technological advances are driving the requirement for innovative methods to detect, identify, and predict trajectories of smaller and/or more distant objects in space. New optical capabilities that complement traditional radar tracking of satellites, as well as increased resolution and sensitivity, are leading to the need for faster and more accurate methods of characterization.
