The Mission Forge team explores new possible Heliophysics missions that are made possible by utilizing newly-developed off-the-shelf AI/ML/Analytics tools. Mission development includes:
Identifying mission technology bottlenecks and gaps where an innovative solution would introduce a major leap in scientific advancement / mission design
Interfacing with the Engineering Directorate (Code 500) to understand which mission operations could be enhanced with an AI/ML solution
Working with the Center for AI Excellence (580) to integrate existing efforts and tools into the CfHA toolkit
Developing or adapting existing tools to a point where they can be used by a mission engineer who is not a subject matter expert in AI/ML
This may also include developing a testbed for designing and experimenting with AI/ML enhancements to mission operations.
