Afghanistan is moving towards safer skies and a brighter economic future with the recent modernization of the nation's airspace. The U.S. government backs this effort through United States Air Forces Central Command, supported by MITRE.
MITRE provided technical leadership and systems engineering expertise in fielding the first phase of the European Phased Adaptive Approach, a missile defense system that integrates ground-based sensors with a sea-based weapon system.
Imagine the advances possible if we could see more of the invisible world. This quest for knowledge spurs MITRE's research in hyperspectral sensing—the science of capturing images beyond the visible spectrum.
