Abstract: My project involved improving upon existing software and developing new software for the Project Morpheus Team. Specifically, I created and updated Integrated Test and Operations Software (ITOS) user interfaces for on-board interaction with the vehicle during archive playback as well as live streaming data. These interfaces are an integral part of the testing and operations for the Morpheus vehicle, providing any and all information to evaluate instruments and ensure coherence and control during Morpheus missions also developed a “bridge” program for interfacing “live” CCSDS (telemetry) data to the Engineering DOUG Graphics Engine (EDGE) display for a graphical (stand-alone or VR dome) view of live Morpheus flights or archive replays.
