HartSCI's ground-based methods produce high resolution images of spacecraft for both daylight and terminator observations. Imaging through the blue sky in the day means that on-demand surveillance of high value low-earth orbit assets is tractable and the direct imaging of sun-synchronous objects is becoming a reality.
Daylight High-Resolution Satellite Imaging
Hubble Space Telescope Ground Imagery
Beyond Adaptive Optics
Passive Faint Object Imaging
Diffraction Limited Resolution
Imaging through Extreme Turbulence
Increased On-Sky Coverage
24/7 Access to Satellite Passes
Our innovative daylight imaging methods, now being deployed at two separate Air Force sites, push past previously limiting factors such as the turbulent atmosphere to return unobscured images. Our methods enable:
Our technology works both with and without adaptive optics. Further innovations are now pushing our technique to resolve faint high value targets using daytime laser guide star adaptive optics and the observing regime is being pushed to solar synchronous objects.
