SuperDarn radar down!
Today at 10 LT our SuperDarn radar took a hard hit by bad weather conditions and is unfortunately out of operation. Wind gusts up to 20 m/s in combination with icing conditions bended the masts 135 degrees down to the ground.

More Info later.
Mass production!
Together with NTNU AMOS and Moon Labs we are proud to announce that our first serial produced Hyper Spectral Imager (HSI) no. v4J arrived in the mail today. It is based on our work that has been among the top 10 most read papers for six months in Optics Express (2018).

OSA press release
Our work on small and lightweight hyperspectral imagers has been awarded a press release by the Optical Society of America (OSA). Drone-based land and ocean spectral mapping is now possible at very low cost.

We are proud to announce that KHO is part in the satellite proposal of NTNU AMOS that just got funded by the Norwegian Research Council. Our knowledge of hyperspectral imaging will fly into space!
In the spotlight!
KHO have hosted two large TV productions in December. NRK is producing a documentary about the Nordic winter and NHK (Nippon Hoso Kyokai) - Japan Broadcasting Corporation is planning for the first time to broadcast the dayside aurora in 360 view.
