Project Description: 

MULTIPLE USER SYSTEM FOR EARTH SENSING (MUSES)TELEDYNE BROWN ENGINEERING (TBE) AND NASA ARE PARTNERING THROUGH BROAD AREA ANNOUNCEMENT NNJ10CAO001K TO DEVELOP DEPLOY AND OPERATE A MULTI-USER POINTING PLATFORM ON A NADIR-LOOKING EXTERNAL ATTACH SITE. THE PLATFORM IS TARGETED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF CUSTOMERS WITHIN THE EARTH IMAGING MARKET. SPECIFIC MARKETS OF INTEREST ARE THOSE DEFINED WITHIN EARTH SCIENCE RESEARCH APPLICATIONS AND COMMERCIAL EARTH IMAGE CONSUMERS; IMAGING TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT AND HUMANITARIAN AID. TH EPROPOSED PLATFORM PROVIDES PLUG AND PLAY ACCOMODATIONS FOR PAYLOADS THROUGH COMMON INTERFACES (STRUCTURAL. POWER AND DATA) TO THE EARTH POINTING PLATFORM USING ROBOTIC ARMS AND MECHANICAL LATCHES. TBE'S MAJOR EFFORT UNDER THIS COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT WILL BE TO DEVELOP MARKETING STRATEGIES AND CAPTURE PLANS DEVELOP THE PLATFORM'S FIRST IMAGING SYSTEM SERVE AS PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR OF THE PLATFORM OWN AND SUSTAIN THE PLATFORM DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT HOSTED INSTRUMENT ACCOMODATIONS AND CREATE AN EARTH IMAGING OPERATIONS AND DATA CENTER. THE MULTIPLE USER SYSTEM FOR EARTH-SENSING (MUSES) WILL BE A UNIQUE ASSET TO THE ISS PROVIDING THE ONLY NADIR VIEWING MULTI-INSTRUMENT PLUG-AND-PLAY POINTING PLATFORM FOR SCIENTISTS RESEARCHERS AND BUSINESS INTERESTS WITHIN NASA. OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND COMMERCIAL BUSINESSES. THE PUBLIC IS BENEFITTED WITH INCREASED ACCESS TO EARTH IMAGES DIASTER RECOVERY DATA AND WEATHER FORECASTING. PLUG AND PLAY ACCOMMODATIONS ARE PROVIDEED THROUGH THE USE OF COMMON INTERFACES (STRUCTURAL POWER AND DATA) TO THE EARTH POINTING PLATFORM AND ENABLE AN EXTRAVEHICULAR ACTIVITY (EVA) CREWPERSON TO INSTALL EACH HOSTED INSTRUMENT WITH SIMPLE ENGAGEMENT AND LOCKING.
