Interactive Visualization Engine for SysML Tools ( InVEST )

The GVIS is supporting the work of Katie Trase, of NASA Glenn’s Power Architecture and Analysis Branch, to create a tool that generates customizable, interactive visualizations ( “dashboards” ) of SysML models.


Projection Augmented Reality for Water Table

The GVIS is supporting the work of Vik Shyam and Sameer Kulkarni, of NASA Glenn’s Turbomachinery and Turboelectric Systems Branch, by using projection augmented reality to display water pressures directly on the water surface in real-time.
