I have a poster at the Space Mission Challenges in IT conference hosted by NASA JPL. Unfortunately, I was unable to make it to the 4-day conference, despite it being an incredibly large number of amazing projects.

In my place, Katie Betchold has done a great job getting my rather large 3’x4′ poster out there, hung up, and my in fact be presenting it today for the 2-minute poster precis. She is totally awesome!

If you don’t, in fact, find yourself in Pasadena, California at the conference, then you can virtually check out my poster (1.8 MB pdf). The accompyaning paper should be in a future IEEE publication available at local newstands everywhere.

The title of the paper is: “The Development and Use of Open-source Spacecraft Simulation and Control Software for Education and Research”, and primarily covers the experiences of developing Open-SESSAME spacecraft modeling and simulation framework, its use at the Space Systems Simulation Laboratory at Virginia Tech, and by various researchers around the world.

    I figure there’s a good chance you’ve noticed them, but here are my pictures of the poster:

    Do you have a build of Open-SESSAME for windows? It would be great help if you do….

    Apparently the open-sessame project :
    is no more active since may be the 22 September 2004. I tried without success to compile it on Debian .
    Is this software now developped somewhere else ? Normally it should always be under the gnu free software licence.
