The NASA project MORSE, carried out jointly with Professor Bonnie John of HCII, is a project consisting of the following five goals:
The task that we have chosen to simulate involves range operations.
Fifteen hours before a launch, three radar station commanders must watch an area of the Atlantic Ocean over which the launch vehicle will be passing. They must coordinate and share resources to remove incursions (air and sea vehicles) from that area. They must also deploy weather monitoring instruments to ascertain how the weather might impact the launch, or modify the assumptions of the effective launch range. At the end of the fifteen hours, the team has a one hour window in which to decide whether to launch or abort the mission, or to whether or not they should change their previous decision.
