Image Science & Analysis Group
The Image Science and Analysis Group (IS&AG) performs engineering image analysis in support of the International Space Station, the Hubble Space Telescope, various Commercial Space efforts and other NASA programs.
IS&AG was established after the investigation of the STS-51L Challenger accident, and its continued existence fulfills one of the lessons learned from the accident investigation. Since that time, our experience and capabilities in the area of image analysis have grown dramatically. Unfortunately, the group came full circle with the STS-107 Columbia accident investigation when these skills were called upon once again. The heroes of STS-51L and STS-107 will always be remembered as the group focuses on Return-to-Flight efforts.
