Remote sensing: Eye in the sky
Show Contributors: Scott Stetson, Andy Eichelberger, Paul Thies
From pods mounted on the underside of propeller planes, to orbital sensor systems on the International Space Station, remote sensing technology is providing us with a host of amazing images and data points with applications ranging from precision agriculture efforts to disaster response aid. On this episode of If/When we’re joined by Scott Stetson, Division Vice President for Growth & Strategy, Jacobs and Andy Eichelberger, Remote Sensing Division Director, Jacobs to discuss remote sensing technology and how it can be applied to address a variety of challenges.
