An update on Verticals

Drone classes are pushed back.

Near-Infrared Technology

I was looking at this sensor technology last week. I periodically dig into a type of sensor technology. Everything improves… but an accelerator like ML gives the data scientist another resource. I am interested in devices with embedded ML functionality to make data more mobile. I need to automate the data scientists. If devices can go into sleep mode, offload computational loads, and stay in an edge network, the utility of even simple devices grow exponentially. Imagine a Uberfication of data science. I imagine it being like a pro-sidekick AI, like a Clippy wave. Within five years my clothes will harvest energy and provide a source for edge systems, possibly begin tuning nanobots within my body to periodically check for tumors and report promptly back to my Spongebob Squarepants knee high socks what I can do about it once my clothes communicate with my healthcare service provider.

classes of transmission

  • vacuum
  • atmosphere
  • optical fiber
    • Optical components used to focus radiation or limit response
      • quartz
      • germanium
      • silicon
    • receivers can be
      • photodiodes
      • photoresistors


Optical components used to focus radiation or limit response

  • quartz
  • zinc
  • sodium chloride
  • gems
  • germanium
  • silicon
  • lots of others


  • night vision goggle
  • tissue analysis
  • plant and soils analyzer
  • hyperspectral pushbroom camera
  • Rubin Observatory


Research use case #1, looking for ore

rubber tree analyzer, terimah kaseh!

Direct reflectance transformation methodology for drone-based hyperspectral imaging. The issue, if you look at the Rubin Observatory case, is an ample opportunity for engineers to devise data analysis tools that can be stuck into pre-processing routines to dig more red-shifted astronomical data from the piles that will arrive at about 10Tb a night in millions of broadcasted state changes. How and why these changes occur is the discovery vector. Now that scientists are able to detect planets in distant galaxies, imagine what, by 2023, will be the focus of the terrestrial satellite? What will it tell us about our universe, or our atmosphere?

Supply Chain

Nothing in the works. Looking at NASA Tech transfer software packages mid-week during Veteran’s Day, when I think about the sacrifices people made for me to study science and raise my kids in relative ease. I know that there are people on this earth who would never have this chance, and there are those who eloquently work miracles where I lay stricken with the dumb.

Drone Build News

Nothing in the works, exploring sensors. I need two of me right now.

Project Work

Dealing with surmountable administrative tasks, preparing for a better build.
