How do you detect a moving asteroid that might hit the earth?

Written by 

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will survey the entire sky for a decade from it's mountaintop perch in Chile, sweeping the sky every 3 nights, shooting two 3-gigapixel images per minute, adding up to a mind-boggling 20 terabytes of images to be processed every night.  LSST's image processing pipelines will automatically analyze this stream of images, and will identify, and track moving objects.  This article describes the MOPS (Moving Object Production System) pipeline, modeling using Enterprise Architect using ICONIX Process for Algorithmic Systems, as described in my book ICONIX Process Roadmaps.

LSST also is using Enterprise Architect for system engineering with SysML, and use case driven development for users of the telescope.  It's a classic case of a large, complex, software intensive system, unifying UML and SysML development is the author's current research area of interest.  LSST software and system models will be verified using Design Driven Testing (DDT) and DDT/Systems.

ICONIX (Chief Executive Officer)
Doug Rosenberg founded ICONIX in his living room in 1984 and began training companies in object-oriented analysis and design around 1990. ICONIX specializes in JumpStart training for UML and SysML, and offers both onsite and open-enrollment courses.
Doug developed a Unified Booch/Rumbaugh/Jacobson approach to modeling in 1993, several years before the advent of UML, and began writing books around 1995. Design Driven Testing is his 6th book on software engineering. He’s also authored numerous multimedia tutorials (including Enterprise Architect for Power Users) and several eBooks, including Embedded Systems Development with SysML.
Doug has spent the last few years doing "deep dive" consulting into cutting-edge technology including cross-platform mobile app development, REST APIs, and NoSQL databases, and gaining first-hand experience on some "hardcore agile" projects of varying sizes.  He's also been working with dozens of graduate students at the University of Southern California Center for Systems and Software Engineering (USC CSSE), managing Directed Research projects and developing/piloting the Resilient Agile process.
