Dynamic reconfiguration of field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) has recently emerged as the next step in reconfigurable computing. Sanders, A Lockheed Martin Company, is developing the enabling technology to exploit dynamic reconfiguration. Sanders, working with Signal Systems Corporation, identified key elements to the successful utilization of context(More)
Imagers on many of the current and future operational meteorological satellites in geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) and lower Earth orbit (LEO) have enough spectral channels to derive cloud microphysical properties useful for a variety of applications. The products include cloud amount, phase, optical depth, temperature, height and pressure, thickness,(More)
with the main center of interest being near Mirabel, Quebec. The AIRS II project operational objectives are to: a) develop techniques/systems to remotely detect, diagnose and forecast hazardous winter conditions at airports, b) improve weather forecasts of aircraft icing conditions, c) better characterize the aircraft-icing environment and d) improve our(More)
A set of physically based retrieval algorithms has been developed to derive from multispectral satellite imagery a variety of cloud properties that can be used to diagnose icing conditions when upper-level clouds are absent. The algorithms are being applied in near-real time to the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) data over Florida,(More)
