State Chart Autocoder

This NASA technology automatically generates code from UML/SysML state-machine models specified in the MagicDraw modeling tool. Input is saved as XML data files, and output is provided by the state-machine implementation code in C, C , Python, or Promela. A test suite validates output products, and...

Support Routines for In-Situ Image Processing

These programs are part of the operational image processing system as used by MER and Phoenix, and are baselined for use by MSL. As such, they are on the critical path for the daily command cycle of these missions, and the products they create are used by the Rover Planners and others to understand...

Surveying System

Sunrise Geodetic Surveys are setting up their equipment for a town survey. Their equipment differs from conventional surveying systems that employ transit rod and chain to measure angles and distances. They are using ISTAC Inc.'s Model 2002 positioning system, which offers fast accurate surveying...

Systems and methods for peak-seeking control

A computerized system and method for peak-seeking-control that uses a unique Kalman filter design to optimize a control loop, in real time, to either maximize or minimize a performance function of a physical object (plant"). The system and method achieves more accurate and efficient peak-seeking-...
