Code 553 - Detector Systems
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's Detector Systems Branch builds a wide range of products from single custom detectors to entire instruments, for NASA, other government agencies, universities, and industry. These detectors span the entire electromagnetic spectrum from the millimeter to cosmic rays. In addition, the Branch fabricates and tests particle detectors and Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and nanotechnology components. Our detectors can be found on NASA's spacecraft, aircraft, balloons and rockets as well as on Earth-based telescopes.
