The following code is an update

The following code is an update of the previous version. It implements functions and loops to encapsulate different methods. The goal is to enable the transfer of data between the aerospace segment and the dwave segment. More on the details of this can be found here.  

 

These calculations include a normalization of the arc distance on the Earth’s surface.

These calculations include a normalization of the arc distance on the Earth’s surface. (The arc distance represents the visible area of the earth from space. It’s expressed as a distance in order to simplify the calculations. Actually the area could calculated as well because we are computing the viewing angle,… Read more“These calculations include a normalization of the arc distance on the Earth’s surface.”

Satellite Coverage Area Calcs: AGI, LOCKHEED MARTIN AND NORTHROP GRUMMAN

AGI, LOCKHEED MARTIN AND NORTHROP GRUMMAN WERE INTERESTED IN A SOLUTION TO A SATELLITE COVERAGE PROBLEM. WE PLACED THE SOLUTION ONLINE TO HELP PEOPLE WITH THEIR ENGINEERING! THANKS!       the problem is basically: what distance on the earth would represent the coverage of a satellite placed in orbit… Read more“Satellite Coverage Area Calcs: AGI, LOCKHEED MARTIN AND NORTHROP GRUMMAN”

Quantum behavior of infrared systems and related tech

  THe above presentation discusses a problem that is present in the satellite industry. There is a solution to this problem involving advanced computing technologies run and operated by NASA. We have partnered with NASA and DWave Systems to serve as a contact point for this particular solution. If you… Read more“Quantum behavior of infrared systems and related tech”

Space Exploration and Fuel Use, is there room for improvement?

  What is this? The above presentation was put together using NASA’s General Mission Analysis Tool software. We wanted to find out exactly how much fuel was being used for different NASA missions. We were hoping to baseline our navigation software so that we could see which areas needed improvement…. Read more“Space Exploration and Fuel Use, is there room for improvement?”

Jenny Fleury’s perspective on the Firecat Mars Mission

A short presentation provided Jenny Fleury’s perspective on the Firecat Mars Mission (via agi.com) and discusses the synergies made possible by combining measurements from optical and radar systems. Basically the optical provides information that the radar network doesn’t provide, and vice versa. Typically, the optical sensor provides spatial resolution and… Read more“Jenny Fleury’s perspective on the Firecat Mars Mission”
