Remote Sensing Expert Witness Referrals Service
Remote sensors are increasingly ubiquitous, whether mounted on satellites many miles overhead, in devices around your house or even on your body. Remote sensors give us pictures of large forest fires, track cloud movement to predict the weather, collect information on temperature changes in the ocean, and much more. More locally, the Internet of Things is driven by remote sensors... Remote sensors are embedded nearly everywhere, from your FitBit to your self-driving car. There are two types of Remote Sensing. With active sensing there is a time delay. The emission and return of images is measured by determining the speed, location, and direction of an object. RADAR and LIDAR are examples of active sensing. Passive sensing has the sensors gathering radiation emitted or reflected by a certain object. Reflected sunlight is the most common source of radiation measured by passive sensors. Other examples are film photography, infrared, and radiometers. Our expert witnesses, speakers, and consultants on remote sensing are professionals from various industries and professions including but not limited to climate change, ecology, environmental, land use, modeling, programming, toxicology, water, and wireless communication. They have published extensively in their areas of expertise and have successfully testified for both the plaintiff and defense.
