Satellite-based Augmentation System - A base station in the sky

Satellite-based Augmentation System - A base station in the sky

December 16, 2020

Satellite-based Augmentation System or SBAS  can augment standalone Global Navigation Satellite Systems such as GPS in a number of areas including accuracy, integrity, and availability.

It works by collecting raw positioning data from Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) in the region, computing error corrections and disseminating these corrections to users from a geostationary communications satellite via an uplink ground station.

Cloud Detection- an open problem

Cloud Detection- an open problem

October 28, 2020

Cloud detection is hard and it's an open problem. If too much water vapor gets in the way of earth imaging sensors and we can't see the surface of the earth they lose some of their value. We need to be able to detect clouds in images.
