Duke Imaging and Spectroscopy Program

The Duke Imaging and Spectroscopy Program demonstrated wide field image capture using a 30 microcamera Aware 2 camera at the 34th America's Cup in San Francisco. Images captured at the event are on line at http://gigapan.com/galleries/10940/gigapans. We are particularly proud of the Kiwi Point photo from race 8 and Golden Gate image from race 7, which each show the unique capacity of Aware to image a single instant across a wide field, allowing us to image the chase fleet as well as the AC72s.  Aware camera technology is described on the DISP projects page. The Aware 10 camera currently in construction contains 382 microcamera, based on our experience at the AC with the Aware 2, we anticipate a lot of fun with the Aware 10.
