The Thematic Mapper (TM) instruments onboard Landsats 4 and 5 provide high-quality imagery appropriate for many different applications, including land cover mapping, landscape ecology, and change detection. Precise calibration was considered to be critical to the success of the Landsat 7 mission and, thus, issues of calibration were given high priority(More)
Accurate endotracheal intubation for patients in extremis or at risk of physiologic decompensation is the gold standard for emergency medicine. Field intubation is a complex process and time to intubation, number of attempts, and hypoxia have all been shown to correlate with increases in morbidity and mortality. Expanding laryngoscope technology which(More)
The Landsat 8 spacecraft was launched on 11 February 2013 carrying the Operational Land Imager (OLI) payload for moderate resolution imaging in the visible, near infrared (NIR), and short-wave infrared (SWIR) spectral bands. During the 90-day commissioning period following launch, several on-orbit geometric calibration activities were performed to refine(More)
The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) Operational Land Imager (OLI) is the successor to the Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) instrument and features a pushbroom architecture that is more geometrically stable than the whiskbroom scanner of the ETM+. As a tradeoff of this architecture selection, imagery must be terrain corrected to ensure(More)
A joystick controlled wheelchair can be an awkward steering apparatus for a person with poor motor skills. An alternate steering apparatus would be a set of four sensors placed underneath a wheelchair's lapboard. There would be one set of sensors for each direction the wheelchair can move. When an object is placed over the sensors, the wheelchair will move(More)
