He is an expert on long-range radar imaging from space.

His presentation was amazing to the Rotarians.

He and his partners are able to gain new information from radar imaging attached to satellites.

Kurtz explained how the radars are sent to space on satellites that have space available for rent and the satellites are called buses because they actually drop off at different locations via the route they are traveling.

The information collected is then sold to commercial customers throughout the world.

Rotarian Merrill Hoffman was program chairperson for the day.

The Fulton Noon Rotary Club meets each week at noon at the Tavern on the Lock Restaurant.
