Remotely Sensed Ammonia Emission From Fumarolic Vents Associated With A Hydrothermally Active Fault In The Salton Sea Geothermal Field, California

Airborne hyperspectral imaging surveys were conducted over a geothermally active region straddling the southeastern shore of the Salton Sea in Southern California. The imagery was acquired across the 7.6–13.5 mm longwave‐infrared region with a ground sample distance of approximately 1 m. Prominent thermal hot spots associated with fumaroles along a known fault line were observed… READ MORE >


Testing TBI with Shock Tube Technology

Issue: TBI, a form of brain injury caused by exposure to explosions and blast waves, has become a major subject of interest in recent years due to the increased use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), mainly in the Afghanistan and been referred to as the “signature” wound of these wars. Statistics on TBI diagnoses are… READ MORE >

CT Scan For Fossilized Big Cats

The Aerospace CT scanner was used to make full 3-D representations of the bones so that they can be examined by researchers and shared with both the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. These scans will allow researchers to study the internal and external shape of the bone and bone thickness…. READ MORE >

Laser Etching for DNA Sequencing

Aerospace’s method of accurately mass-producing flow cells has helped to significantly reduce the cost of DNA sequencing—from millions of dollars to around $4,000—making sequencing an individual patient’s DNA affordable. The process invented at Aerospace allows for the creation of much more sophisticated, true three-dimensional shapes within the glass because the focused laser beam can be moved to expose… READ MORE >
