Founded in 1979 SciTec Inc. is a Research and Development (R&D) company offering services for remote sensing applications. Based in Princeton, N.J., it develops physics-based models and signal processing algorithms, builds custom scientific instrumentation and supports field testing and validation programs. The physics models include flow field and radiative transport models to predict the observables for particular measurement scenarios, which are then used to design custom instruments, such as radiometers and spectrometers. SciTec Inc. analyzes the test data, applies atmospheric correction techniques to account for absorption and scattering effects, estimates measurement uncertainties and then uses the data to validate the physics model and/or the sensor design and derive critical information about target characteristics. The firm provides a range of services and a fully-integrated technical support to the army, navy, air force, other government agencies and industrial system development firms.
