Join the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for the next NOAA Innovators Seminar on October 26th at 1 p.m. Eastern! What's it about? Weather forecasting, GPS, Remote sensing

Speaker: Bryan Chan, Night Crew Labs, CEO

Abstract: Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) radio occultation (GNSS-RO) is a remote sensing technique that uses GPS signals to monitor Earth’s atmosphere in a scalable and cost-effective manner. GNSS Radio Occultation from space satellites has proven an invaluable data input to weather forecasting, in particular details of severe weather events such as hurricane intensities and trajectories. This presentation discusses Night Crew Labs’ approach to using this remote sensing technique combined with existing aerial platforms.

Bio: Bryan Chan is the CEO of Night Crew Labs. He has more than 10 years of experience in the aerospace industry, supporting a wide range of engineering projects ranging from geosynchronous satellites to lunar rovers and Mars landers. He received his Master’s of Science degree from Stanford University.
