A SensorWeb is a set of sensors, which can consist of ground, airborne and space-based sensors interoperating in an automated or autonomous collaborative manner. The NASA SensorWeb toolbox, developed at NASA/GSFC in collaboration with NASA/JPL, NASA/Ames and other partners, is a set of software and standards that enables users to customize their experience with a set of sensors to (1) increase and enhance access; (2) orchestrate and automate the sensor activities via secure cross domain workflows and (3) automatically process the sensor data into higher level data products and distribute those products to user desktops via the Internet. Recently, the SensorWeb team developed a new software architecture and user interface to enable users to specify an algorithm and sensor data produced in a SensorWeb in near realtime, against which to run the algorithm. The resultant data product is delivered automatically to the user desktop. The user interface follows the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard called Web Coverage Processing Service (WCPS). This presentation will detail the prototype that was built and how the WCPS was tested against a HyspIRI flight testbed, an elastic computation cloud on the ground with EO-1 data and the AMS testbed. HyspIRI is a future NASA decadal mission. The elastic computation cloud stores EO-1 data and runs software similar to Amazon online shopping. The AMS instrument flies on the Ikhana Unmanned Aerial System.
