Era Workshop, June 25-26, 2009
Earth Science Data Systems
NASA’s Earth Science approach for continually evolving data systems is through a competitive NASA Research Announcement (NRA) entitled “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Science (ROSES)”
ROSES contains many program elements, but technology infusion into Earth science data systems generally involves the leveraging existing technologies and methodologies and maturing them through one or more these elements (depending upon the starting TRL):
These programs are centered on technologies and methodologies that serve the research and applied science communities (they are not about technology for technology’s sake).
ES Data Systems
TRL = Technology Readiness Level
The AISR Program is …
A program to exploit advances in computer science and technology to increase productivity of research endeavors sponsored by Science Mission Directorate (SMD)
The AIST Program is …
The development and advancement of the end-to-end hardware and software systems to support and enable NASA’s extraordinarily data-intensive Earth science measurements.
AIST has three primary objectives:
AIST projects have experienced substantial successes:
AIST technologies are providing increased access to, and improved interrogation of, Earth science data through services designed for a wide range of users.
AIST technologies are managing remote sensing resources and data in order to create fully interoperable systems and provide feedback loops for new, improved observations.
AIST technologies are creating new ways to improve, visualize, combine, extract and understand complex and ever-expanding Earth science data returns.
AIST technologies are ensuring rapid, robust, error-free data transfer and exchange across and among disparate space- and ground-based systems.
AIST technologies are helping make observations more useful, more autonomous, more timely, and more efficient while also preserving the lifetimes (cost) of valuable instruments and sensors.
Since 1999,AIST has released and funded 5 solicitations:

The ACCESS Program is …
The innovative infusion of mature and promising technologies into current data systems infrastructure. ACCESS seeks to advance research and applied Earth science goals by enhancing and extending collaborative connections, and increasing the use and reuse of existing data and services.
Since 2005,ACCESS has released and funded 4 solicitations:
