A network-centric geospatial data processing, management and analysis server.

PIPE™ (Planetary Information Processing Environment) is a network-centric geospatial data processing, management and analysis server optimized for solar system exploration missions. PIPE™, a specialized version of WIPE™, enables the creation and maintenance of robust planetary data portals. PIPE™ includes WIPE™ features plus additional components designed specifically for solar system missions. Additional PIPE™ features include:

  • Telemetry data ingestion – PIPE™ ingests, processes, manages, and archives raw telemetry data from sensors in addition to image data. PIPE™ supports CCSDS and mission specific formats.
  • Planetary Data System (PDS) Archive generation – automatic generation of NASA PDS archives.
  • Experimental Data Record (EDR) search engine – PIPE™ provides a robust multi-dimensional web-based search interface for interrogating mission data and displaying image results in a browser.
  • Mission Customization – The ACT team works directly with mission managers, operations, and research teams to customize PIPE™ to address unique mission requirements.
  • MSHELL – PIPE™ is powered by the ACT image processing engine and architecture. PIPE™ can be installed on a single machine or individual server components can be distributed over multiple servers for high-availability and high performance scenarios.
