ADMG Support for Earth Venture Sub-orbital (EVS) Investigations

The Airborne Data Management Group provides support to Earth Venture Sub-orbital (EVS) mission investigation teams and Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) personnel, with the goal of improving and speeding the data archival process.

EVS is one component of the NASA Science Mission Directorate/Earth Science Division's Earth Venture (EV) program. Approximately five investigations are selected every four years. These are specialized investigations using aircraft, balloons, sounding rockets, drones, and other suborbital assets to gather science data. The investigations may also contain ground and/or water in situ or remote measuring instruments.

The list below contains the EVS-3 investigations and the assigned NASA DAAC that will archive the investigation data.
