Not into space? Don’t leave just yet!
Even though NASA is dedicated to the study of space and aeronautics, there is software in a range of categories from business systems and project management, to environmental science, dataservers processing and handling, and design and integration tools!
A sampling of the software included in the catalog this year is:
“Schedule Test and Assessment Tool (STAT) 5.0“: used for schedule management developed to work with Microsoft Project’s scheduling application.
“Engineering DOUG Graphics for Exploration (EDGE)“: a real-time 3D graphics rendering package, adapted for the purpose of simulation outputs.
“‘Worldview’ satellite imagery browsing and downloading tool“: a software tool for browsing and downloading imagery from NASA’s Earth observing satellites (available within 4 hours of capture).
