Open Source Software from NASA

BigView allows for interactive panning and zooming of images of arbitrary size on desktop PCs running linux. Additionally, it can work in a multi-screen environment where multiple PCs cooperate to view a single large image. Using this software, one can explore — on relatively modest machines — images such as the Mars Orbiter Camera mosaic [92160×33280 pixels].

Livingstone2 is a reusable artificial intelligence (AI) software system designed to assist spacecraft, life support systems, chemical plants or other complex systems in operating robustly with minimal human supervision, even in the face of hardware failures or unexpected events. Livingstone2 diagnoses the current state of the spacecraft or other system and recommends commands or repair actions that will allow the system to continue operations.
