Each year, the International Space Station (ISS) Research and Development (R&D) Conference, held in coordination with the ISS U.S. National Laboratory, NASA, and the American Astronautical Society, highlights individuals who have pushed the boundaries of space-based research through the presentation of research awards. This week, we are spotlighting awardees in the category of “compelling results.” Today’s spotlight is on Dr. James Goodman of HySpeed Computing, for compelling results in the field of Earth science and remote sensing.
ISS National Laboratory Opportunities

Advances in remote sensing and satellite technology are resulting in a wealth of data that is currently outpacing processing capabilities. To address these data processing challenges and help make remote sensing data useful for the larger user community, HySpeed Computing launched an online web application providing remote sensing data analysis in the cloud: The Hyperspectral Imager for the Coastal Ocean (HICO, a now-retired ISS imager) Image Processing System (IPS). Developed in part through ISS National Laboratory funding and support, HICO IPS efficiently delivered on-demand image analysis capabilities to a global user community. HySpeed Computing’s three fully operational commercial products, developed based on the HICO IPS cloud-processing framework, are now available through the CloudEO Store, a global marketplace for on-demand geoanalytics.
