Our maritime vessel tracking hardware (GLobal AIS on Space Station) was successfully installed on the International Space Station last week. Preliminary data looks good. We still have some forward work ahead of us, but below is a decent screen shot of about 8 hours of data. GLASS project details at www.jamssamerica.com/glass

So, we are giving away one year of maritime vessel traffic data!

Over the last two years, we have been designing, building, and testing a payload to be flown to the International Space Station. Our project is called GLobal AIS on Space Station (GLASS). Here are some details:

The purpose of the GLASS project is to track maritime vessel traffic worldwide from the International Space Station.

Most vessels over 300 gross tons must transmit an Automatic Identification Signal (AIS), which is detectable from space.

We are looking for evaluators to participate in a one-year applied research initiative.

We are specifically looking to work with businesses, government organizations, and academic researchers and institutions.

The hardware is complete, and will launch on a SpaceX vehicle this summer.

When the hardware is installed, checked out, and operational, we will begin offering the data to evaluators.

After the one-year evaluation period is over, we intend to commercialize the platform.

Anyone interested in finding out more should visit our website for details. Thanks!

Interpret this dream for me: I was sitting in front of the house I grew up in when Wynonna Judd walks by with a bag of her garbage and casually puts it in our trash can. She notices me and says "Hey, Ben! I have something for you!" She reaches into her garbage and pulls out a really nice designer handbag with this Joey Chao tiki room design on it. "Cool! Thanks!" I say. She says, "I found it in my hall closet. Sorry about all the mustard stains." I look more closely and it's got crusty mustard spots all over it and all the buckles are broken off.

I'm attending #spacecom Houston. The main theme seems to be 1. Cost reduction 2. Cost reduction 3. Cost reduction. I think we are reaching a tipping point in space access affordability...
