Mission Tools Suite

NASA Airborne Science Mission Tools Suite


The NASA Airborne Science Mission Tools Suite supports the Airborne Science Program (ASP) and the NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Earth Science Division by providing a suite of web-based capabilities to support Airborne Science Missions.

At its most basic, the ASP Mission Tool Suite provides a means for visualizing the position of an aircraft and instruments during the course of the mission. Such information is made more useful when compared with or overlaid upon other datasets and model outputs used for mission planning and science data analysis. Additionally, the ASP Mission Tools Suite is equipped with a chat feature that facilitates real time communication between mission team members during science missions.
