Technologist Mahmooda Sultana holds an early iteration of an autonomous multifunctional sensor platform, which could benefit all of NASA's major scientific disciplines and efforts to send humans to the Moon and Mars. Associated Environmental Systems helps solve new technology testing needs and aims to increase the quality of technology used today.
The technology is capable of sensing everything from minute concentrations of gases and vapor, atmospheric pressure and temperature, and then transmitting that data via a wireless antenna -- all from the same self-contained platform that measures just two-by-three-inches in size.
