Title: Using the SPICE System to Help Plan and Interpret Space Science Observations
Authors: Jr., Charles H. Acton
Issue Date: 17-Nov-1992
Citation: Pasadena, CA
Abstract: A portable multimission information system named SPICE is used to assemble, archive, and provide easy access to viewing and other ancillary information needed by space scientists to interpret observations of bodies within our solar system. The modular nature of this system lends it to use in planning such observations as well. Since a successful proof of concept on Voyager, the SPICE system has been adapted to several recent JPL spacecraft missions and a variety of ground based operations. Other adaptations are underway. SPICE has been used to support observation planning for moving targets on the Hubble Space Telescope Project. Applications for SPICE on earth science, space physics, and other astrophysics missions are under consideration.
