Software to processing and analyze of airborne measurements.
The Airborne Data Processing and Analysis (ADPAA) package is an open-source software package containing a collection of programs and scripts to process and analyze data from in-situ instruments deployed on airborne platforms. The ADPAA package was started to process data on the North Dakota Citation Research Aircraft but has been used to process data on many airborne platforms. The software methodology used in ADPAA is provided in the peer-review publication: Delene, D. J., Airborne Data Processing and Analysis Software Package, Earth Science Informatics, 4(1), 29-44, 2011, URL: http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s12145-010-0061-4, DOI: 10.1007/s12145-010-0061-4.

Lexico-grammatical/syntactical analyzer of sentences in English
"SayWhat?" is a natural language processing system for spell-checking, lexical, grammatical and syntactical analysis of simple sentences in English. Note that it is just an educational project, not even 50%-complete (there are still many problems to solve), so don't expect too much.
