2014 2014 United States National Committee of URSI National Radio Science Meeting (USNC-URSI NRSM)  
The 118/183 GHz system is well suited for a CubeSat deployment as ~10cm antenna aperture provides sufficiently small footprint sizes (~25km).  ...  The successful demonstration of this instrument on the 6U CubeSat would pave the way for the development of a constellation consisting of suite of these instruments.  ...  Jason Hyon for their support and funding.  ...

'Over the THz Horizon' thermal infrared technologies and applications

Jingye Sun, Stepan Lucyszyn
Chapter 3 will report on a research application-led study for predicting atmospheric attenuation, and tries to bridge the knowledge gap between applied engineering and atmospheric sciences.  ...  As a useful comparative baseline, Chapter 3 focuses specifically on atmospheric attenuation under pristine conditions, over the extended terahertz spectrum.  ...  water vapor-free plasma ame.  ...
