|Theia's SY125M CCTV lens is a part of NASA's GloPac science mission|
SY125M lens was selected for use in NASA's GloPac science mission. The mission will gather atmospheric and weather conditions in a series of 30+ hour profiling flights that will span the tropical pacific to the North Polar Region.
Theia's lens is mounted on a modified StarDot 5 megapixel SC NetCam camera and installed on a Global Hawk drone. According to NASA sources, the SY125M lens, which had captured an image of the Sierra Nevada mountain range at 60,000 feet on the Global Hawk's maiden science flight April 2, worked flawlessly. NASA is expected to announce a live feed of the missions in the near future.
