Innovators at NASA’s Johnson Space Center have developed a graphics display tool that combines key elements from graphics software developed for the space shuttle and the International Space Station (ISS) programs and adapts them for integration with other engineering simulations and facilities. The Engineering Dynamic On-board Ubiquitous Graphics (DOUG) Graphics for Exploration (EDGE) package allows NASA to reduce costs and development time for new programs by incorporating the output from previous graphics models developed over the past few decades. EDGE allows drop-in integration with the NASA Trick Simulation Environment and provides a fusion of three-dimensional (3D) graphics and simulation outputs. This software may be released for U.S. Government purposes only.
This technology is being made available through JSC’s Technology Transfer and Commercialization Office, which seeks to transfer technology into and out of NASA to benefit the space program and U.S. industry. NASA invites companies to consider licensing this technology for commercial applications.
