In that role, he helped create the navigation system for NASA's Nimbus satellite program.
  • 2.  The Nimbus program launched in 1964 and used a number of satellites to monitor and observe atmospheric conditions. Satellites equipped with microwave and infrared radiometers, ozone mappers, and other equipment helped Nimbus scientists receive data transmissions related to ice and sea coverage, atmospheric chemistry and temperatures, and radiation levels around the world.
  • 3.  The Nimbus program included several waves of satellite models, beginning with Nimbus 1 and ending with Nimbus 7. Each model launched with a variety of different objectives, including developing characterizations of the atmosphere and oceans, gathering data on the planet's heat balance, evaluating pollution levels, analyzing weather patterns, and providing international oceanographic data geared toward collection programs. Nimbus satellites ultimately led to the modern developments in weather and atmospheric data technology.
