HGH Infrared Systems and SRI Sarnoff Impress at SOFIC Conference Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013 Last week, the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference in Tampa, FL, gathered 336 companies who had purchased their booths on the first day they went on sale, and as many companies on the waiting list were hoping to participate. Although the attendance was slightly down compared to the other years, the show still has great traction whereas other DOD shows were deserted this year....

CIBER To Help NASA Visualize Beginnings Of The Universe
2013-05-21 17:43:54

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Everything has a beginning and discovering the beginning of the universe could begin next month. On June 4, NASA will launch an experiment that could answer the question as to when the first stars and galaxies formed in the universe, and how brightly these stars may have burned their fuel. Next month, scientists will look to answers with the launch of the Cosmic Infrared Background ExpeRiment (CIBER) on the Black Brant XII...

Balluff´s new vision sensor with built-in infrared lighting and integrated daylight filter eliminates issues with changing lighting conditions and bothersome pulsing lights, common in standard vision sensors. Florence, KY (PRWEB) May 16, 2013 Inspection, bar code and text reading processes for vision sensors can be significantly impaired by changing ambient lighting conditions. Simultaneously, employees and technicians are often bothered by the pulsing red light of normal vision...

Webb Telescope's MIRI Thermal Shield Tested By NASA
2013-05-08 14:27:47

NASA NASA engineer Acey Herrera recently checked out copper test wires inside the thermal shield of the Mid-Infrared Instrument, known as MIRI, that will fly aboard NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. The shield is designed to protect the vital MIRI instrument from excess heat. At the time of the photo, the thermal shield was about to go through rigorous environmental testing to ensure it can perform properly in the extreme cold temperatures that it will encounter in space. Herrera is...

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online One challenge of ground-based optical astronomy is that photons in this regime, and nearby infrared and ultraviolet bands, get refracted in our atmosphere. The consequence is that imaging of astronomical objects can be blurred, making it difficult to identify and characterize individual objects. Compensating for these effects can be tricky though, as our atmosphere is not a static system. Rather, it is in a state of...

Star Formation -- Star formation is the process by which gas in molecular clouds gets transformed into stars. In the current paradigm of star formation, cores of molecular clouds (regions of specially high density) became gravitationally unstable, and start to concentrate. Part of the gravitational energy lost in the process is radiated in the infrared, another part increases the temperature of the core. The accretion of material happen partially though a circumstellar disc. When...

Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...
