AbstractProperly managing the volumes of data that are sent from satellites to the ground is becoming more important for a number of reasons. As more satellites are launched more data becomes available and there is a wealth of information contained within the data sets; information regarding the performance of the satellite subsystems, sensors, efficiency of autonomous software, and the accuracy of models and simulations to name a few. Proper storage and archival methods help ensure these data sets are available to scientists and engineers to discover previously unknown and “never before thought of” relationships between systems or subsystems. The most obvious “first step” in this process is to preserve the data for work that may lead towards new discovery and future advances. AFRL is committed to preserving these data sets for these and other stated reasons. This paper describes one ongoing effort related to the Joint Warfighting Space Demonstration 1 (JWSD-1) (aka RoadRunner) satellite program that archives all the data sent to the ground and makes that data available via the Internet to concerned groups of users.
