NASA Selects VSee to Provide Secure Video Chat on the ISS
SUNNYVALE, CA: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration] (NASA) has officially selected has officially selected VSee- a video telemedicine platform to provide secure video conferencing on board the International Space Station (ISS).
Leveraging VSee, astronauts can now video chat with their doctors and family, collaborate with other scientists, and do public outreach with school children. “This is both a huge opportunity and a great honor for VSee,” says Dr. Milton Chen, CEO of VSee.
Initially, the Johnson Space Center (JSC) Mission Control Research group prototyped VSee for mission control. Then NASA Space Medicine group explored using VSee for space telemedicine projects. VSee was also part of the NASA Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Community Desktop Videoconferencing prototype program.
Additionally, as VSee uses standard IP networks, it allows NASA to take advantage of tighter systems integration and compatibility when interfacing with their legacy and other newer enterprise agency video conferencing systems allowing the use of other mobile devices by remote support personnel and crew families. NASA may eventually phase out their older ISS related audio/video codecs and recording hardware altogether.
Smith noted, "Now, not only does VSee provide an enhanced replacement for our current capability to support secure, two-way, private medical consultations and family conferences with our ISS crewmembers, but it also provides a significant increase in our ability to support some of our other telemedicine and science objectives such as remote clinical guidance, device monitoring and control, and just-in-time training and distance learning.”
