Kitware Awarded NASA Contract to Build Open Source Scientific Visualization Software

Friday Mar 18th 2011 by Keith Vance

Open source Kitware is going to begin working on Phase I of this project to allow for real-time investigation of big data.

NASA tapped Kitware as the open source software company to work on solving critical issues regarding an ultrascale visualization system that can enable real-time investigation of extremely large datasets using massive distributed memory architectures and up 100,000 cores.

Collaborating with California-based SciberQuest, Kitware will embark on Phase I of the project. This phase of the project is limited to developing prototypes and selecting a solution.

If Phase II is funded, those prototypes and that solution will be incorporated into ParaView and the underlying Visualization Toolkit.
