Advanced information systems are used to process, archive, access, visualize, and communicate science data. Advanced computing and communications concepts that permit the transmission and management of terabytes of data are essential to a unified observational network. Information provided to a nationwide community of users will result in significant leaps of Earth science dynamics knowledge that benefits the global community.

ESTO’s Advanced Information Systems Technology (AIST)program employs an end-to-end approach to evolve technologies – from the space segment, where the information pipeline begins, to the end user, where knowledge is advanced.

The AIST program is also integrating these technologies within an evolving sensor web concept and promoting collaboration among principal investigators through a series of sensor web workshops.
