IN13: Information Technology Infusion - Successful Strategies

In 2003 NASA established the Earth Science Data Systems Working Groups to
provide an interactive forum to advance the use of Earth science remote
sensing data. Technology Infusion was identified as a strategic component of
future NASA data systems. The group created a vision of the NASA information
system capabilities anticipated for the coming decade and tackled the
barriers and solutions to infusing new technology to achieve the vision.
Information technology has a significant impact throughout the life cycle of
remote sensing systems, from sensor data processing to multi-sensor data
production to data assimilation. To ignore changing technology is costly, so
proactively planning for infusion and adaptation is a strategic necessity.
This session seeks technology infusion experiences from both within and
beyond NASA sponsored activities, and how the corresponding lessons learned
can benefit present and future efforts. Examples of problems and solutions
to technology infusion in remote sensing data systems are desired,
specifically those dealing with data processing, system interoperability and
service oriented architectures.
