Biological Imaging in Support of Suborbital Science (FLEX)

Active Technology Project

Project Description

Biological Imaging in Support of Suborbital Science (FLEX)
Building on 20 years of plant research in both suborbital and orbital environments, researchers are working to refine a biological imaging system for exploration science. The goal: to enable autonomous, high-resolution image data collection for a variety of biological payloads during transitions in gravity levels. The current hardware, while flight proven, lacks autofocus and modern resolution. Improvements will address these shortcomings and also examine new biological sensors for the imager. More »
