Jay Trimble Writes a Chapter For The AIAA Book, Space Operations, Innovations, Inventions, and Discoveries

Jay Trimble wrote the chapter "Open Source Software for Mission Operations - Technology, Licensing and Community," in the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) book, Space Operations: Innovations, Inventions and Discoveries. The book is a compilation of best papers from the SpaceOps 2014 Conference. The Open Source chapter chronicles our experience in using Open Source software as an enabler for collaboration, licensing issues, choosing a repository, and the challenges of building a community.

BACKGROUND: Hosted by the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and organized by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), the SpaceOps Conference brings together the space operations community to address state-of-the-art operations principles, methods, and tools. Held biennially since 1990, the Conference attracts technologists, scientists, and managers from space agencies, industry, and academia. SpaceOps fosters managerial and technical interchange on all aspects of space mission operations, including robotic and human spaceflight; earth orbit, lunar, planetary, and deep-space missions; and orbital and surface operations.

PROGRAM FUNDING: Human Exploration Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD)
