    The Advanced Technology Center (ATC) is a small R&D lab in Palo Alto, California within Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company which aims to solve challenging engineering & integration problems and provide next generation capabilities to its defense, aerospace and civilian customers. We do research and provide services such as system design and integration/testing in variety of areas, including optics, phenomenology, materials, and space sciences & instrumentation. In this talk I will give an overview of the ATC and highlight a few areas of interest, including our efforts in ground based space situational awareness. I’ll introduce SPIDER (Segmented Planar Imaging Detector for Electro-optical Reconnaissance), our concept for an ultra-thin optical imaging sensor based on photonic integrated circuits and interferometric imaging techniques. We’ve built a laboratory test bed to verify the SPIDER measurement concept, and I will present our current results and goals. 

    Speaker Bio(s): 

    Anthony Yee joined Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC) in 2018 after receiving his PhD in Optics from the University of Rochester at the Institute of Optics. His doctoral work focused on infrared gradient-index optics, metrology, optical design, and athermalization. He is currently a senior optical engineer at the ATC and Optical Payload Center of Excellence (OPCoE), working on optical design of telescopes for interferometric imaging.
