Paper Abstract

Meeting the goals for EOSDIS to acquire, manage, and distribute large volumes of remote sensing data can be accomplished by leveraging the capabilities of advanced technologies. In this paper we first introduce the EOSDIS architecture and the concepts of sponsored research prototypes and technology transfer. We discuss the motivations and roles that collaboration, emergence, and changing technology play in the process of adapting technology to the challenges of developing the EOSDIS core system (ECS). Further discussions include the implementation of a testbed which has been established for ECS technology transfer. The ECS technology transfer testbed (ET3) demonstrates NASA's strategy for risk mitigation where near- term and long-term objectives can be met by appropriately exploiting emerging technology research. The technology transfer process we describe defines the mechanisms necessary to evaluate, assess, and integrate research results into the full system engineering and development life cycle for EOSDIS.
