Advanced Holography Offers 3D Fire Measurements

In a propellant fire, large molten aluminum drops form at the burning surface. The drops are lofted into the environment and can severely damage anything that they fall on. Liquid breakup must be understood to predict the scale and intensity of such fires.

Cameras Provide Critical Data for NASA Rocket’s First Flight

On March 11, NASA tested the powerful five-segment booster for NASA’s new rocket, the Space Launch System. To provide critical data for the rocket’s first flight, eight cameras with more than 40 different settings — including varying exposures — were set up near the forward portion of the booster. During the two-minute test, the cameras were computer-controlled and cycled through pre-programmed settings.

Video Wall Monitors Space Station Science

Clarity™ Matrix LCD Video Wall System Planar Systems Beaverton, OR 866-475-2627 www.planar.com A Clarity Matrix video wall system was installed at NASA’s Payload Operations Integration Center (POIC) at Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama to monitor and manage science being conducted on the International Space Station (ISS). The POIC has been operational since 2001 and, during that time, flight control and other center personnel have monitored and managed ISS mission progress using a mix of large-scale computer monitors and a complement of large-scale projection screens to view ISS activities and share information. In the newly renovated POIC, a video wall of 24 displays has been installed in front of and above the flight control positions. Operational since mid-2013, the video wall provides capabilities that enhance collaboration among the ground team and enable them to more efficiently help the ISS crew and researchers around the world to perform science on station.

Ophthalmology Imaging: The Importance of Color Reproduction

Lumenera recently partnered with an ophthalmology diagnostic device manufacturer that required a camera for integration into its product. The goal was to obtain sharp retinal fundus images with accurate color reproduction for documentation, sharing, and storage of their results. A date stamp was also needed for later review and diagnosis.
