Sigma Space participated as an exhibitor at the NOAA Technology Summit, on November 4 2010, in the NOAA Silver Spring (MD) Science Center.
Savy Mathur, Program Manger MPL Systems, (in the picture), and Phil DeCola, Chief Science Officer, attended the event for our Company, presenting our Micro Pulse Lidar (MPL).
“Our MPL has great appeal in the meteorological and environmental science community”, declared Savy Mathur after the event. He added that “the newly available MiniMPL along with our recently upgraded software provides a powerful tool for collection and interpretation of cloud and aerosol data. “
“In addition to highlithing our MPL technology, the summit gave us the opportunity to showcase other disruptive new technologies such as our fast 3D imaging lidar that produce revolutionary Earth observations for enhanced decision-support” said Phil DeCola.
The NOAA Technology Summit welcomed several other government agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and NASA, who also contribute their capabilities to responding to environmental challenges such as the recent oil spill and severe weather events.
