Combining consumer tech and AGI software

By: sclaypoole
The space industry has always been way ahead of the curve when it comes to technology. Since 1976, thousands of high-tech NASA innovations have been incorporated into commercial products; some that you may know about (TV satellite dishes, medical imaging, invisible braces) and some that you may not (baby formula, edible toothpaste, smoke detectors). Today, that trend is reversing, with innovations designed for consumer electronics finding their way into other industries, including space. AGI is contributing to this through:
  • sharing satellite owner/operator data in the cloud at the Space Data Center;
  • an Android application that utilizes augmented reality to view satellites overhead; and
  • a flexible software solution that allows the NASA IBEX flight dynamics team to fly this mission from a laptop.
