Title: Semantic Summarization for Context Aware Manipulation of Data
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX10CB55C
Award Amount: $599,533.00
 

Abstract:

NASA's exploration and scientific missions will produce terabytes of information. As NASA enters a new phase of space exploration, managing large amounts of scientific and operational data will become even more challenging. Robots conducting planetary exploration will produce data for selection and preparation of exploration sites. Robots and space probes will collect scientific data to improve understanding of the solar system. Satellites in low Earth orbit will collect data for monitoring changes in the Earth's atmosphere and surface environment. Key challenges for all these missions are understanding and summarizing what data have been collected and using this knowledge to improve data access. TRACLabs and CMU propose to develop context aware image manipulation software for managing data collected remotely during NASA missions. This software will filter and search large image archives using the temporal and spatial characteristics of images, and the robotic, instrument, and environmental conditions when images were taken. It also will implement techniques for finding which images show a terrain feature specified by the user. In Phase II we will implement this software and evaluate its effectiveness for NASA missions. At the end of Phase II, context aware image manipulation software at TRL 5-6 will be delivered to NASA.
