NASA uses Eclipse as a common platform for mission and field test software. During the Haughton-Mars Project field test of 2010, scientists, field engineers and robots were deployed to Devon Island, Canada. Ground and Flight Operations were at NASA Ames in California. This presentation will explore the challenges with using Eclipse for remote real-time systems, and highlight using the following technology in Eclipse:

  • Java based 3D environment within Eclipse
  • Communicating with robots
  • Complex KML loading via EMF
  • Generating UI components with the databinding framework
  • Real-time telemetry display
  • This presentation should be accessible to any audience but will also include some explanation of implementation details for interesting Eclipse components.

    Tamar Cohen is a senior computer scientist at NASA Ames Research Center in the Intelligent Robotics Group. She has been developing Eclipse plugins for at least 6 years, professionally developing software for 17 years. Tamar holds a BS in Computer Science from Cornell University and a MA in Fine Art from George Mason University.
