Science to change our world and beyond

AMA is the prime contractor on the RSES contract, supporting LaRC's broad range of scientific research and devleopment projects. Our work includes science and development support, system administration, database administration, web applications, and tool development. AMA supports the Archive Next Generation software (ANGe), WebRA, and CAMP projects. AMA provides enhancements to Global Imagery Browser Service (GIBS) as part of the ASDC’s end-to-end services. AMA also supports the Earth Data Forum.

Open Data Cube: An Open Source solution for Geospatial Data

AMA is a founding partner of the Open Data Cube (ODC). The Open Source Geospatial Data Management and Analysis Software project that helps you harness the power of Satellite data. ​The Open Data Cube (ODC) Google Sandbox is a free and open programming interface that connects users to Google Earth Engine datasets. The open source tool allows users to run Python application algorithms using Google's Colab notebook environment. This tool demonstrates rapid creation of science products anywhere in the world without the need to download and process the satellite data, click here.


Earth Observations at Scale on Microsoft's Planetary Computer

As part of the GEO-Microsoft Program, AMA was awarded a grant to develop a system demonstrating Earth Observation data at multiple scales (Satellite, UAV, IoT, Microscopic) to solve problems related to Algal blooms, agriculture, deforestation, and water extent. AMA has designed and developed IoT sensors that are integrated into the system. AMA leveraged open source UAVs and commercial off-the-shelf drones to acquire data. AMA applied machine learning to perform the analysis and is developing an Open Source Algorithm hub. The system will be demonstrate at the upcoming 2022 GEO conference in Ghana, Africa. 


AMA's Science Flight Project Development

AMA provided Science Flight Project Development support to the CLARREO Pathfinder Project for ISS related activities. Work included engineering of CLARREO Pathfinder payload to ISS system interfaces; interface requirements development and review; consultation on the ISS integration, test, and launch flow and schedules; risk identification and assessment; and technical activity coordination with the CLARREO Pathfinder ISS Research Integration Manager and Payload Integration Manager. AMA also supported laboratory instrument integration of the electronics with the other subsystem components for the CLARREO IR.
