NASA ICB 2015 Awards

NEQAIR team from Ames Research Center

Orion Guidance, Navigation, and Control Flight Software team from Johnson Space Center

Two NASA software design teams received the agency’s prestigious Software of the Year Award for 2015. The co-winners were Ames Research Center for NEQAIR, Nonequilibrium Radiative Transport and Spectra Program, and Johnson Space Center for Orion Guidance, Navigation, and Control Flight Software.

Ames Research Center's NEQAIR is a line-by-line radiation code that computes spontaneous emission, absorption and stimulated emission due to transitions between various energy states of chemical species along a line-of-sight. The Orion Guidance, Navigation, and Control Flight Software technology from the Johnson Space Center uses a MATLAB/Simulink tool suite to embrace a model-based development approach.

Additionally, Jet Propulsion Laboratory's invention, Data Optimization via Genetic Ordering (DOGO) System and Langley Research Center's Airborne Doppler Wind Lidar Post Data Processing Software DAPS-LV (LAR-18270-1) were selected as Runners-Up.

The following inventions were selected for Honorable Mention:

  • AFRC: NASA SOFIA Enterprise Middleware Solution DRC-010-040
  • GRC: Toolbox for the Modeling and Analysis of Thermodynamic Systems (T-MATS) LEW-19165-1
  • GSFC: General Mission Analysis Tool (GMAT) GSC-17177-1
  • MSFC: Project Cost Estimating Capability (PCEC) MFS-33187-1
  • SSC: NASA Data Acquisition System (NDAS) v 1.0 and v 2.0 SSC-CC-004
