Researchers at NASA's Johnson Space Center have developed an innovative software solution that allows complex real-time multi-media data streams to be viewed as information on remote devices. Known as ADROIT, the middleware solution allows access to data anywhere anytime using Extensible Markup Language (XLM) and wireless transmissions to Web-enabled handheld devices such as personal data assistants, laptops, netbooks, or smart phones. The innovation allows team members to view operation data remotely in real time and reduces operations costs by decreasing the number of required personnel in a control center. ADROIT also makes it unnecessary to equip each terminal with platform-specific software for access to the data streams or with software that implements the information-sharing protocol used to deliver telemetry data to client devices. This software may be released for U.S. Government purposes only.
- Economical: Lowers operations costs by reducing personnel required to be in the control center
- Efficient: Permits remote access to operations information and telemetry data from mobile devices without requiring platform-specific software for each mobile device
- Broad: Allows general access to telemetry data streams without requiring a knowledge or implementation of the Information Sharing Protocol used to deliver telemetry data
- Command Centers that require distributed access to real-time multi-media data, including Integrated Vehicle Health Management applications
