Satellite Remote Sensing | About

For over 30 years CPI has provided critical scientific and technical support for many successful atmospheric remote sensing programs, and has significant in-house expertise in the key areas of algorithm development, data processing and analysis and product validation. In addition, CPI has the complimentary capability to develop very sensitive, miniature photometers for use in small satellites and multi-spectral/hyper-spectral imaging applications.

Dr. Jerry D. Lumpe

Vice President Boulder Office

Remote Sensing Lead

Dr. Jerry D. Lumpe leads CPI's remote sensing business area and serves as Vice President of the company's Boulder office. Dr. Lumpe specializes in satellite remote sensing of the atmosphere, from the upper troposphere through the thermosphere.  He has participated in several remote sensing programs and lead the development of CPI's generalized retrieval software tool (GRANT), which has been used as the core operational retrieval algorithm for a number of satellite and ground-based remote sensing missions. Dr. Lumpe's scientific activities result in regular publication of research results in the peer-reviewed literature.
