Open-Sourcing Opticks Originally developed by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. (BATC) for the US Air Force (USAF) for hyperspectral analysis starting in Spring 2000. Spelling of Opticks was chosen to match the title of Isaac Newton’s book BATC and USAF started working jointly in 2006 to release the core application as open-source. Specifically LGPL v2.1. Opticks was released as open-source in December 2007 and both BATC and USAF continue to support this effort. Since then, the following extensions have been open-sourced by BATC and USAF: IDL Scripting Python Scripting Spectral Processing
University Applications Nathan Jennings is using Opticks as part of the lab for GEOG 342 (Introduction to Remote Sensing and Digital Image Processing) at American River College in Sacramento He ported some of his pre-existing radar processing code into an Opticks extension and has published the extension to the http://opticks.org/ website. Opticks participated in Google Summer of Code 2010 Two university students wrote extensions to Opticks over the 10 week summer of code period and published the capability to the http://opticks.org/ website. The Python Scripting extension allows for easy algorithm development and prototyping NumPy bring array processing capabilities similar to Matlab, IDL to Python Opticks, Python, Python Scripting extension for Opticks and NumPy are free and open-source Students can work at home or in lab
