An innovative scanning technology developed by a Colorado-based small business may eventually save lives and boost the success rate of military missions.
Funding from the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) Program helped Atmospheric and Space Technology
Research Associates – also known as ASTRA – to create a new instrument to pinpoint atmospheric problems that impact communication and navigation
signals. This compact smart-scan mirror provides near real-time detection of “bubbles” in the Earth’s upper atmosphere, which can interfere
with radio signals used by the Department of Defense.
Armed with the data, military planners could avoid performing operations in areas where the irregularities are
