Wireless Sensor Network Handles Image Data


Vexcel Corporation, of Boulder, Colorado, received Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) funding through Goddard to develop the wireless sensor network technology that now aids in the high-speed handling of image data. This technology has uses in both the commercial sector, where it is used to relay satellite imagery to the desktop, and in the government sector, where NASA is finding continued use in terrestrial and interplanetary studies.
