Abstract
NASA MAINTAINS AN EXTRAORDINARY QUANTITY OF SCIENTIFIC DATA IN MULTITYPE N-DIMENSIONAL ARRAYS. EXAMPLES CAN BE FOUND INNASA CLIMATE DATA SYSTEM (NCDS) AND FLEXIBLE IMAGE TRANSPORTSYSTEM IMAGES. A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM IS THAT NO UNIVERSAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM EXISTS FOR THIS DATA. THIS PROJECT WILL BUILD A SCIENTIFIC ARRAY DATA MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (SADMS), WHICH WILL CONTAIN SOFTWARE TOOLS TO BROWSE, QUERY, AND OBTAIN GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATIONS, AS WELL AS PERFORM COMPUTATIONS ON DATA INDEPENDENT OF ITS FORMAT. TOOLS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT HIGH-LEVEL LANGUAGE, COMMAND, AND MENU LEVELS. SYSTEM BUILDERS CAN EASILY BUILD THEIR OWN APPLICATIONS USING THE TOOLS PROVIDED; USERS CAN USE THE NATIVE FRONT-END OR SUPPLY THEIR OWN. AT ITS CORE, SADMS WILL USE THE NASA-DEVELOPED COMMON DATA FORMAT PLUS NCDS ENHANCEMENTS. SADMS WILL GREATLY REDUCE THE DEVELOPMENT TIME OF NEW APPLICATIONS, RESULTING IN SIGNIFICANT COST SAVINGS TO NASA. EXISTING TECHNOLOGY SUCH AS GRAPHICAL DISPLAY IN NCDS COULD BE USED AS IS. THUS, SADMS, CREATION OF A SUBSYSTEM PROTOTYPE, AND A DEMONSTRATION OF HOW SADMS CAN SUPPORT THE CONSTRUCTION OF APPLICATIONS ON TYPICAL DATA. PHASE II WOULD INVOLVE THE FULL IMPLEMENTATION OF SADMS.
