NASA’s Space Apps Challenge is an international mass
collaboration/hackathon organized on a global scale and held in all major
cities worldwide, with a focus on finding solutions to challenges faced in
space exploration and also to life on Earth.
The Winner of the Stuttgart chapter of Global NASA Space Apps Challenge is
BigWhoop. BigWhoop addresses the “Open Source Air Traffic Tracking”
Challenge. This challenge required the building of a tool that allowed
users to select a particular flight and see its out-the-window or other
views of the aircraft, and airspace. We decided to extend the scope of the
project a bit. Our app was designed as a global sensor grid to measure the
whole radio spectrum -thus making air traffic monitoring a subset of the
solution. This free and community driven approach based on small and
low-cost software defined radio devices earned the local team a global
nomination for NASA’s People’s Choice Awards and will be competing to be
among the final 15 out of 949 projects for global People’s Choice awards.
And now you can vote for the Stuttgart Team as of 27 April.
