Image Science Determines Placement of Optical Targets for Orion

Our Image Science & Analysis Laboratory (ISAL) team is using computer modeling to determine placement of optical targets (white/yellow spots) on three panels (red, green, blue) which will be jettisoned at 2 minutes into the launch of Orion. These targets will allow video analysts to measure position and attitude of the panels during jettison and verify the jettison mechanisms work as designed.
