Since the 1970s, we have helped NASA and academic organizations around the world to discover and explore the universe. Characterizing and understanding Earth’s space environment and designing and developing missions and instruments is at the heart of our space research program. To support space exploration and discovery, SwRI has overseen a number of missions as well as mission and science operations centers for NASA missions. Our scientists strive to provide reliable state-of-the-art testing and support for mission operations and payloads that are coordinated by SwRI. We design commands that capture images and data by spacecraft, automate data processing, and archive data processing.
