The trend of blending sensors such as radars, lasers and infrared optics into a single system is accelerating. In fact, driven by increased processing power from ever-smaller packages, researchers plan to put these multispectral sensor systems into space. Moreover, they are examining a larger spectrum of mission for these fused systems. “You’re going to have [fused airborne packages in pods] that can gather visible, infrared, hyperspectral, ladar, radar and polarimetric data, and it will ...
