NASA Ames Research Center and the California Institute of Technology's Jet Propulsion Laboratory jointly developed the Collaborative Information Portal, which provided enterprise software for NASA's Mars exploration rover mission. Mission managers, engineers, scientists, and researchers used this Internet application to view current staffing and event schedules, download data and image files generated by the rovers, receive broadcast messages, and get accurate times in various Mars and Earth time zones. This article describes the software's features, architecture, and implementation, and conveys the lessons learned from its deployment.
