    Some radar image processing algorithms such as shape-from-shading are particularly compute-intensive and time-consuming. If, in addition, a data set to be processed is large, then it may make sense to perform the processing of images on multiple workstations or parallel processing systems. We have implemented shape-from-shading, stereo matching, resampling, gridding, and visualization of terrain m... View full abstract»

    An autonomous spacecraft must balance long-term and short-term considerations. It must perform purposeful activities that ensure long-term science and engineering goals are achieved and ensure that it maintains positive resource margins. This requires planning in advance to avoid a series of shortsighted decisions that can lead to failure. However, it must also respond in a timely fashion to a som... View full abstract»

    The Cassini Program is the last of the large interplanetary spacecraft missions. The Integration Test Laboratory (ITL) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is part of the Cassini Program. This laboratory includes the Attitude and Articulation Control Subsystem (AACS) testbed. This environment was used to not only verify and validate the AACS, but was also used to develop advanced concepts and id... View full abstract»

    The Inertial Navigation System's (INS) Simulator models in real-time are a data stream from INS describing a maneuver object's motion along the reference trajectory previously specified - the same trajectory which is used at same time for modeling a radio signal with GNSS Simulator. INS Simulator's specific features are as follows: converting the GNSS Simulator (coordinate and velocities of a rate... View full abstract»
