JPL Team Honored With NASA's Software of the Year Award

Software developed by a team of engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, has been selected to receive NASA's Software of the Year Award. The ASE software helps scientists monitor environmental events on Earth, such as volanic eruptions, floods and wildfires. + JPL Press Release



Software Learns to Recognize Spring Thaw

Spring thaw in the Northern Hemisphere was monitored by a new set of eyes this year -- an Earth-orbiting NASA spacecraft carrying a new version of software trained to recognize and distinguish snow, ice, and water from space. + JPL Press Release



New Software on NASA Spacecraft Monitors Active Volcano

Software on a NASA spacecraft recently made a scientific observation on its own without human interaction. The ST6 Autonomous Sciencecraft Experiment captured images of Antarctica's Mt. Erebus and detected volcanic activity. + JPL Press Release



NASA Satellites Eye Forest Fires

If a forest catches fire and no one is around to see it, can it call for help? The forest cannot call, but thanks to new technology developed by NASA, firefighters may get the word faster through new, high-tech eyes in the sky. + JPL Press Release



Artificial Intelligence Software to Command Mission

NASA software that thinks for itself and makes decisions without help from ground controllers will fly as the brains of triplet satellites in 2002. + JPL Press Release
