NEOCam • Missions & Center • Proposed
The Near-Earth Object Camera (NEOCam) is a new mission proposal designed to discover and characterize most of the potentially hazardous asteroids that are near the Earth. NEOCam consists of an infrared telescope and a wide-field camera operating at thermal infrared wavelengths. The NEOCam proposal has recently been funded by NASA for technology development.
IPAC will serve as the home for NEOCam's science data processing system.
