SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — GEOINT Booth 475 — To completely overhaul a film and video lab that had been working in much the same fashion for 50 years, the 30th Space Communications Squadron at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) has installed storage technology from SGI to create an all-digital production environment. Similar to SGI(R) installations in Hollywood but handling data streams with much higher frame rates, the high-performance SGI(R) InfiniteStorage SAN enables real-time media production and postproduction of multiple 4K data streams. The SGI SAN system, installed in late July 2007, is used to monitor, test and evaluate the performance and engineering design of a number of spacecraft and missile programs for the United States Air Force, a variety of U.S. government agencies including NASA and the National Weather Service, and a growing number of commercial interests.

SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — GEOINT 2007, Booth 475 — To receive, process and distribute high-resolution imagery obtained by Malaysia’s Earth observation satellite, Astronautic Technology Sdn Bhd (ATSB) selected a wide range of high-performance compute and storage technology from SGI (NASDAQ: SGIC) . The SGI-powered real-time data processing system was installed in July in preparation for the launch of the RazakSAT(TM) spacecraft. Currently, Malaysian agencies requiring satellite imagery rely upon image data and information provided by satellites manufactured and operated by foreign companies. Due to the orbit in which these satellites are located, the images provided are neither timely enough nor do they cater to Malaysia’s specific uses and needs. Malaysia’s own satellite is a highly specialized payload requiring high performance ground ingest and processing capabilities that will provide specific and timely data for its users in Malaysia as well as catering to the needs of other countries located on the equatorial belt.
The RazakSAT satellite will be operated through its ground station in Malaysia, consisting of a Mission Control Station (MCS) and Image Receiving and Processing Station (IRPS), where the SGI systems are housed. ATSB’s engineers are operators at the MCS and will execute RazakSAT’s mission plan, command generation and telemetry receiving, archiving and analysis. Using the SGI real-time image and data processing system, which includes an SGI(R) Altix(R) 350 server running Oracle(R) as the database for their image processing application, the IRPS will receive images for archive, post-processing and distribution.

In the quest to design the next generation of spacecraft, NASA researchers produce mountains of scientific and engineering data. The same goes for climate change studies, aeronautics analysis, and research into the earth’s atmosphere.
To manage, store and retrieve these vast quantities of information, NASA is deploying a data management solution from SGI (NASDAQ: SGIC) . Currently being implemented at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing facility at NASA Ames Research Center, the solution is based on the SGI(R) InfiniteStorage Data Migration Facility (DMF). NASA will use the DMF solution to quickly and efficiently move older data files to a tape archive, making the much faster disk space self-managing.
