The National Aeronautics and Space Administration or NASA is the government agency responsible for the United States of America’s space program and long-term general aerospace research.  Hundreds of individuals across NASA need to access imaging assets, which are critical to the safety of NASA’s space shuttle missions, in order to monitor launch results, reviews design decisions and insure mission safety. Additional video footage and still images shot on orbit enable NASA engineers to compare pre-flight and in-flight images in order to asses functionality and highlight areas that warrant further scrutiny.

Until recently, however, only the Image Analysis Team staff could view these baseline images, and sometimes with delays because of the complexity of accessing them.

To make the baseline images readily available outside of the Images Analysis Teams (IAT), NASA turned to Inmagic Presto software as the foundation of its Institutional Computerized Archiving System, or ICAS. Presto opens the baseline images for use by the broader NASA community by organizing those images and providing direct 24/7 Web-based access for all authorized users. Presto also is used to archive motion picture film and video footage captured during a mission, and in the future will be used to distribute that footage as well.

NASA Integration Lead Chuck Brown explained that they choosed Presto because of it’s unique ability to archive, manage and provide broad access to imaging assets. Inmagic Inc. is the global leader in enterprise Research Asset Management. Inmagic is sold in the Philippines by EISI.
