The Image Science & Analysis Laboratory team helps the Orion Program select the placement of cameras to observe key Exploration Mission objectives. This image shows analysis recently completed to demonstrate inspection of the Orion heat shield from various camera placements on the Orion Service Module.

Our Image Science & Analysis Laboratory team produced a CAD model of the multilayer insulation surrounding an ammonia connection to Node 3. This will be used to further assess clearance of the HTV5 thruster relative to the ammonia line in berthing situations.
