Simulating an incident at the Newark Port Authority, the NASA EO-1 satellite is called in for support.
After checking availability and feasibilities of an observation of Port Newark, an opportunity was selected and a high priority tasking request was submitted for the EO1 satellite Hyperion instrument centered at the target location.
An automated email from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory was received upon successful replacement of the target request in the ground queue.
Tonight, the tasks will be uploaded to the satellite. The onboard scheduler will automatically regenerate the sequencing of the instruments onboard without any human intervention using the Autonomous Sciencraft Experiment (JPL/CASPER).
Level 1G Hyperspectral Data will be made available within 12 hours by USGS and served by the GeoBliki Sensor Observation Service. A subset of the 242 available hyperspectral bands will be available on-demand.
An automated BPEL script from GMU GeoBrain will start the processing of the subsetted data. This processing has been tailored to detect potential flood coverage in the area. A GeoTIFF image will generated and dispayed on a web client.
The relevant web services have all been registered in the NASA Earth Sciences Catalog to allow for systematic discovery.
Due to high demand, here is the official link for the OGC Sensor Web Enablement White Paper
We finally talked to Dr Liping Di at GMU Laboratory for Advanced Information Technology and Standards (LAITS)
GeoBliki and GeoBrain will be joined at the hip as part of the OGC OWS-4 and ESTO AIST concerted effort led by Dan Mandl, at NASA GSFC.
As part of the OWS-4 demo, GeoBrain will provide a BPEL workflow to process EO1 hyperspectral data and generate custom data products for an end-user. LAITS will also provide a WCTS (Web Coordinate Transformation Service) to transform the Eo1 GeoTiff from UTM to WSG84.
A GeoBrain BPEL workflow will connect the EO1 SOS, WCTS, WPS’s from WUSL CAPITA and UAH Earth System Science Lab. A user will receive a notification from our Pubsub service as a GeoRss feed when the data is available.
We intend to have this in-place for the December 4-5 OWS-4 demo to support a Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Relief scenario.
We just moved to a new TextDrive data center. We think the move went well. Please let us know if you see anything strange.
