Volume 176, Issue 17

In the cover photo of  the Defense Technology edition, provided by Ball Aerospace, engineers ready DigitalGlobe’s new WorldView-3 satellite for electromagnetic interference-testing at Ball’s Boulder, Colo., manufacturing facility prior to launch in August. It will be the first commercial remote-sensing spacecraft to collect images in 17 spectral bands. The satellite will allow for ground processors to correct for atmospheric obstructions such as haze (see page 55 in both editions). The Defense Technology edition includes an additional section of articles beginning after page 34.
