News ItemPark Company Partners with ONR

Sep 6, 2016 –

FASORtronics LLC, a company located in the SS&TP, recently completed its second phase of a research contract with the Office of Naval Research (ONR) where they remotely measured Earth’s geomagnetic field at 92 km altitude using a laser. This was a measurement not obtainable by high altitude balloons or satellites, and was the first time this type of measurement was made. A value northeast of Tucson, Arizona of 45441 nT was measured with an error of 1.9 nT, easily within the range of sophisticated magnetic field models.
