Dr. Kenneth J. Johnston
Scientific Director
U.S. Naval Observatory
bullet OBSS is the result of a collaboration between several institutions:
  • U.S. Naval Observatory
  • The U.S. Naval Observatory (USNO) has assembled a team with complete, in-depth experience in the necessary technologies of astrometry and spaceflight. USNO will provide the management and scientific leadership for the project and perform the data management, analysis and archiving. Our science team represents US and European academic and government institutions. The team has broad experience with ground based astrometric techniques and space flight programs and includes scientists with expertise in the use of astrometric data for various astronomical investigations. The engineering team is similarly experienced with precision ground and space-based optical systems.
