Ascending Node Technologies will be able to leverage the power and resources of the APN for the continued development of Spaceline; and other mission management and planning tools.
TUCSON, Ariz. - Ascending Node Technologies, developer of the Spaceline; a web-based mission planning and data management system, today announced it has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). The APN is a global community of AWS Partners that leverage programs, expertise, and resources to build, market and sell customer offerings.
“We are proud to join the APN,” said Sanford Selznick, Ascending Node Technologies Chief Software Architect. “This opens the door to providing customers more efficient, flexible, and scalable enterprise mission planning tools deployed on AWS that can help mission managers, planners, and product customers work more effectively together.”
Spaceline empowers interplanetary exploration mission teams to create 3D, interactive, visual representations of complex scientific data in a manageable, sharable format for all stages of mission operations. The web-based product allows for the rapid visualization of telemetry data derived from Navigation Ancillary Information Facility (NAIF) SPICE kernels and hypothetical scientific models for easy comparison, review, and feedback across the team. Spaceline also provides ground data system utilities capable of ingesting and analyzing millions of records in seconds.
In addition, Spaceline also generates simulated predicted instrument data, allowing mission designers to get an early start on calibration/validation pipelines. The Spaceline architecture allows updates to kernels to easily propagate, and helps users understand the impact of their upcoming observations. As an accessible, sharable science planning platform, Spaceline increases the accuracy of mission science modeling and supports observation planning.
As an APN member, Ascending Node Technologies joins a global network of 100,000 Partners from more than 150 countries working with AWS to provide innovative solutions, solve technical challenges, win deals, and deliver value to mutual customers.
About Ascending Node Technologies
Ascending Node Technologies, LLC, is a Tucson-based company that develops technology to allow spacecraft mission designers and operators to work better together. Spaceline is the company’s new web-based application that creates telemetry-based, interactive 3D visualizations of spacecraft operations right in your browser, which can then be shared across the mission team for easy collaboration and feedback. Ascending Node’s founders have more than half a century’s combined experience planning, developing and operating interplanetary exploration missions. In 2019 NASA ignited the development of Spaceline and has since awarded Ascending Node Technologies multiple SBIR contracts. Learn more at www.ascendingnode.tech.
