Innovators at NASA’s Johnson Space Center have developed a system to shadow bright light sources without darkening the entire field of view. The innovation uses an appropriately positioned charge-coupled device sensor to provide input to a liquid crystal matrix between the light source and the receptor.
Innovators at NASA’s Johnson Space Center have patented a system for surveying and evaluating space-based images to locate geographic areas favorable for petroleum deposits. The technology identifies accumulations of sediments arranged in fluvial fan patterns that may be indicative of deposits of petroleum and other minerals.
