Applications

The NASA Earth Science Division supports basic and applied research on the Earth system and its processes.

Primary efforts are to characterize, understand, and improve predictions of the Earth system.

In the course the research, NASA pursues innovative and practical uses of Earth science data to improve government, business, and NGOs’ decision-making activities.

“The AMS expands our current capabilities and offers efficiencies in a number of remote-sensing applications including fire, post-fire and forest health applications.”

Everett Hinkley, USFS

Remote Sensing Program Manager

slide12
“From a research standpoint we’ve learned nearly all that we can from AMS. However, the AMS instrument has proven its continuing value for operational fire support.

Thanks to the engineers and scientists who designed, built, and refine AMS over the years. We are pleased to be able to transition AMS from its NASA-supported research phase to its USFS-supported mature operational phase.

SMD/ESD Applications Readiness Level
  • Applications Readiness Level (ARL)
  • Nine-stage metric to track the maturity of applications projects – from initial idea, through development, to the transition to operational use.
  • ARL as a tool:
  • Communication Tool to convey expected advancement to PIs & project teams.
  • Analysis Tool to assess progress of a project or state of entire project portfolio.
  • Reporting Tool for performance goals.
  • Diagnostic Tool to identify where projects tend to break down in development.
