24 April 2020 A National Laboratory “crystal ball” look into the future of sensing and imaging systems
Author Affiliations +
Los Alamos National Laboratory has been involved in advanced remote sensing since its inception in 1943. From detecting gamma ray bursts in space, generating real time geo-rectified imagery in Iraq or zapping rocks on mars, Los Alamos has developed numerous advanced sensing and imaging systems for a myriad of missions. However, getting the data is often the easy part of the problem. How we collect, manage and process large disparate data sets, maintain end-to-end data integrity and generate low latency, actionable knowledge with minimal human oversight is generally the bigger part of the puzzle. So do we have a crystal ball for the future? By looking at how these various technology areas have been developing and how they are being used in conjunction with one another, we can start to understand what technology gaps exist and just what might be possible in the future.
