NASA Launches Website for Earth Images From Lockheed's EPIC Camera - top government contractors - best government contracting event

EarthNASA has unveiled a new website to provide daily color images of Earth captured by the Lockheed Martin-built Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory.

The space agency said Tuesday the website will show a sequence of images that show the sunlit side of the Earth as it rotates and will allow visitors to access a searchable archive of the collected images.

Langley Research Center’s Atmospheric Science Data Center hosts the images and those pictures are in the public domain.

NASA said each full-color image combines three single-color images in red, blue and green and is equivalent in quality to that produced by a 12-megapixel camera.

Lockheed’s EPIC consists of a four-megapixel, charge-coupled camera and telescope and uses a variety of narrowband filters to capture short-exposure images.

DSCOVR is a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Air Force to support U.S. solar wind monitoring efforts and NOAA’s space weather alert and forecast service.
