Tour of Laser Propagation Facilities At Kennedy Space Center

Registration for this event will close by 8 June to ensure time to secure security clearances.  Attendees that are not US citizens will received a security form to complete a few days after registration and it must be completed and returned by 8 June. 

During this tour at Kennedy Space Center (KSC), you will see various facilities used for outside field experiments such as laser propagation measurements. The tour will include UCF’s Townes Institute Science and Technology Experimentation Facility (TISTEF), the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF), and Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). TISTEF is a site for experiments that require deployment in a fielded setting and consists of a 1 km grass range equipped with atmospheric monitoring instruments and multiple scintillometers as well as capabilities for optical tracking and remote sensing. From this site, slant path measurements can be made over the 13 km path to the top of the VAB. The 5 km long SLF is ideal for longer path measurements because of its homogeneity and flatness (earth’s curvature has been removed).
