Mapping the Inner Solar System

The Asteroid Institute is developing tools to enable at-scale analysis of moving-object data for asteroid discovery, characterization, and impact monitoring.

Algorithms for Small Body Science

By creating a novel, open-source, and scalable software platform, the Asteroid Institute will enable the deployment and development of new algorithms and tools for the analysis of moving sources in archival and upcoming photometric surveys.
