Abstract : Keo Consultants participated in the research of the Ionospheric Applications Branch at Phillips Laboratory, by implementing improvements in research optical instrumentation (imagers and photometers). This research involved numerous field trips to study aurora, airglow, ionospheric scintillations, barium releases, and heater experiments. Keo customized instrument control software for each application, and developed software to display the resultant images and compared with other data sets.
