About NASA SkyWatchInputCheck VectorTableSkyLogVariablesAbout

NASA SkyWatch is an application developed by NASA and the United Space Alliance, or USA, in cooperation with Texas Southern University. Funded by the Dual Use Academic Liaison project, USA strives to increase community involvement by introducing college students to "real world" challenges. Future Dual Use Academic Liaison projects include real time trajectory monitoring and enhanced state vector display applications.

Although developed almost entirely by the students, NASA SkyWatch could not have been completed without the enormous support from engineers and professionals at both USA and NASA-JSC. The following individuals are recognized for their significant contribution to this project:
