Hi CesiumJS community,
Do you want to help NASA develop software for space exploration? The NASA Ames Intelligent Robotics Group (irg.arc.nasa.gov) has an opening for a computer scientist to help create the next generation planetary ground data system. This is an exciting opportunity to co-develop systems that will make a difference in how we explore space. There is a possibility of travel to and participation in field work.

xGDS (Exploration Ground Data System, xgds.org) provides web-based planning, monitoring, archiving, and map-based exploration tools for image, video, instrument and other data gathered in various field tests. We integrate with rovers, underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), handheld instruments and more.
The Exploration Ground Data System is currently used in the following fieldwork:
• https://spacescience.arc.nasa.gov/basalt/ Work with scientists simulating Mars exploration in Volcanoes National Park, HI
• https://www.nasa.gov/resource-prospector/ Do research on planning tools for a proposed rover mission to the Moon
• SUBSEA: Work with NOAA to integrate xGDS with the E/V Nautilus and ROVs to explore and map the deep ocean
• BRAILLE: Work with scientists using a robot to explore lava tube caves in Lava Beds National Monument, CA
The NASA Ames Intelligent Robotics Group (IRG) is dedicated to enabling humans and robots to explore and learn about extreme environments, remote locations, and uncharted worlds. IRG conducts applied research in a wide range of areas with an emphasis on robotics systems science and field testing. IRG's expertise includes applied computer vision (navigation, planetary mapping, automated science support), interactive 3D user interfaces, robot software architecture, and planetary rovers.
