Earth observations are a key component facilitating scientific progress. We prototype the latest technologies to support new science and applications from Earth observation data.
Complex problems often require conceptualization of creative new solutions. We work to improve existing processes and develop best practices that maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of existing Earth science data management and stewardship.
We help to bring NASA Earth observations and data products to other agencies via services, tools, and software. Our efforts broaden Earth Science data use, allowing non-NASA use of NASA data.
Applying new technology includes both benefits and risks. We rapidly prototype and test the feasibility of the latest technical and management concepts in order to mitigate organizational risk. New capabilities are developed, proven, and then infused across the Earth Science Data System program.
