sufficiently powerful to provide onboard processing capabilities for a gigapixel capability.
Both the basic science underlying advances in detectors, optics, coolers, and algorithms and the commodity processing capabilities enabling new trades in signal processing are available worldwide. Emerging detector and related system-level technologies have significant potential for advancing sensor systems and deserve attention from the intelligence community in assessing present and future global sensor system capabilities.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
