||ASAP - Advanced Satellite Aviation-weather Products
Langley's aeronautics heritage and excellence in atmospheric research provides the perfect
environment for NASA’s Advanced Satellite Aviation-Weather Products (ASAP) Project.
ASAP applications for convective weather, volcanic ash clouds, in-flight icing and turbulence.
These applications are being integrated into aviation weather operations by the FAA and NOAA
and will eventually be used by the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen)
Network-Enabled Weather (NNEW) System to enable pilots, dispatchers and controllers to manage
and mitigate the effects of future weather hazards and constraints during high traffic density
operations. ASAP has recently expanded its scope to tackle new challenges
in space weather and the impacts of aviation on climate and air quality.
||IDEA - Infusing satellite Data into Environmental Applications
IDEA or Infusing satellite Data into Environmental Applications is a NASA Langley applications
project that seeks to improve the assessment, prediction, and real-time decision-making tools
of the air quality management community for the protection of public health and the environment.
||POWER - Prediction Of World Energy Resource
Within the NASA Earth Science Applied Sciences Program, the Prediction of Worldwide Energy Resource (POWER) project,
formerly the Surface Meteorology and Solar Energy (SSE) project, collaborates with other government and private
organizations to provide NASA quality research satellite/modeling data products for societal benefits.
The POWER Project specifically targets those who are involved in the research and analysis of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies
to support both feasibility and monitoring analysis for energy and building systems.
The data products also support agriculture applications and additional societal benefit areas such as health.
||DEVELOP - Applied Sciences - Human Capital Development
DEVELOP is a NASA Science Mission Directorate Applied Sciences Program that fosters human
capital development to extend NASA science research to local communities. Students demonstrate
to community leaders prototype applications of NASA science measurements and predictions
addressing local policy issues. The activities are student led, with advisors and mentors
from NASA and other partner organizations.
