IDS supports modeling, numerical methods, simulations and diagnostics activities. Mathematical models range from simple algorithms to complex prognostic models and data assimilation systems. IDS utilizes Government Off-The-Shelf (GOTS) and Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) simulation products to optimize research objectives.
IDS staff support the analysis, comparison and reprocessing of data from Earth-orbiting satellite instruments. We support data reduction projects and apply principal component analysis techniques to reduce the dimensionality of photometric and spectroscopic data sets.We are also adept at advanced studies that require the construction of state-of-the-art mathematical or statistical models and have applied these skills to the monitoring and prediction of invasive species forecasting.
