General Satellite-Related Lessons

  • Earth from Space: These lessons are designed for middle or high school instruction. They feature ocean color data, but can be easily adapted to any Earth data type.  Help students understand how Earth-sensing satellites “see” the Earth.   Earth-sensing satellites do not have cameras, but rather they use electronic instruments (sensors) to measure reflected light (radiances).


Satellite Software Tools

  • STK:  Learn about using this software tool that allows engineers and scientists to design and develop complex dynamic simulations of real-world problems, especially those relating to satellites, spacecraft, and aircraft.  STK is a fantastic aerospace activity for CAP Cadets, CAP Senior Members, and middle/high school AEMs and their students.
