ASTER, JET PROPULSION LABORATORY, NASA

Data Center Description
The ASTER Project consists of two parts, each having a Japanese and a U.S.
component. Mission operations are split between Earth Remote Sensing Data
Analysis Center (ERSDAC) in Japan, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in
the U.S. ERSDAC oversees monitoring instrument performance and health,
developing the daily schedule command sequence, processing Level 0 data to
Level 1, and providing higher level data processing, archiving and
distribution. JPL ASTER project provides scheduling support for US
investigators, calibration and validation of the instrument and data products,
coordinating the US Science Team, and maintaining the science algorithms. The
joint Japan/U.S. ASTER Science Team has about 40 scientists and researchers.
