MC Face-to-Face Meeting

Westwood, California

mission archiving
Mission Archiving
  • Archiving for all on-going PDS3 missions is proceeding relatively smoothly and on time
  • LADEE
    • Archive is in good shape, but is in PDS3 style (labels and organization)
      • The SPICE data are fully usable—no problems at all
      • NAIF must catch up in converting the archive to PDS4 style
        • Will happen very shortly
        • Delayed due to work on the N65 Toolkit
  • Whether or not to convert completed and on-going archives to PDS4 remains an open question
  • Restoration work for Magellan, Galileo, Phoenix and LCROSS remains on hold. (Some possible work on Voyager also remains on hold.)

staffing
Staffing
  • “SPICE is SPICE,” so NAIF provides very little support to PDS4 working groups and tiger teams
  • NAIF has a staffing issue outside of the PDS purview
    • Way behind on core SPICE development work
    • Newly requested DSN improvement and modernization tasks
    • Newly requested Air Force orbital debris tracking system
      • (not yet confirmed)
software 1
Software - 1
  • Need to re-do pieces of software used to produce labels for SPICE in PDS4
    • Possibly the LACE tool could be used for part of this (TBD)
  • WebGeocalc V 1.0 is seeing quite a bit of use from around the globe
    • Trying to find means to develop it further
  • Building on efforts of two high school summer interns to demonstrate connecting SPICE with a mission visualization tool–Cosmographia
    • Both the tool and the connection process need work
    • Question as to whether PDS as a whole has any interest in seeing this move forward? Under what conditions?
software 2
Software - 2
  • Version N65 SPICE Toolkit is available
    • 47 “environments” are offered
    • Offers substantial performance improvement in some scenarios, plus many other new and improved items
      • Read the “whats.new” file for details
  • Focus now is on..
    • Finishing the tessellated plate portion of the Digital Shape Kernel (DSK), resulting in a new Toolkit release
      • Maybe this winter?
    • Finishing the Java Native Interface (JNI) Toolkits
      • Release in new Toolkit by ???
    • Lots of “small stuff” that didn’t make it into N65
other news
Other News
  • Rosetta is silently making substantial use of SPICE
    • Some folks appear to be using the alpha-test shape model (Digital Shape Kernel)
      • Supposedly to help with landing site selection, maybe more?
    • NAIF has been essentially disconnected from the project by NASA/JPL travel policies
  • At COSPAR Tom Duxbury was told by some Japanese they intend to use SPICE on Hayabusa-2
  • ESA’s ExoMars 2016 Project has now officially requested substantial NAIF/SPICE support
    • Don’t know if/how NAIF can handle this
  • Still a few openings in the October training class
