"NASA has been levying new and ever increasing overhead charges against the EO-1 project related to the switch-over to full cost accounting in the financial system while the EO-1 budget has remained fixed. We continue to upgrade the ground and flight systems on EO-1 with SOA-based web service implementations that allow us to continue flying the satellite on less available operations funding while increasing our functionality, reliability, and performance. We have increased the flexibility of the systems while decreasing the turn-around and delivery times for new target-of-opportunity acquisitions important to the disaster management community through use of Sensor Web Enabled services we developed in concert with OGC-sponsored pilots and testbeds. We are implementing more new product generation capabilities and improving the ease of integration of these new products in our processing stream using the SOA-web services approach and OGC standards."
