The Mars Entry, Descent and Landing Instrumentation 2 (MEDLI2) project developed a suite of sensors that will measure aerothermal environments and the performance of thermal protection system (TPS) material during the entry phase on the Mars 2020 mission, according to the JPL.
In addition to the Raspberry Pi device that was connected to NASA's JPL network without authorisation, the OIG found that the agency's network gateway had not been properly set-up.
As Engadget reports, investigators looking into a security breach found that an unauthorised Raspberry Pi was linked to the JPL network that was targeted by hackers in April 2018, allowing them to steal 500MB of data and also go deeper into JPL's network.
JPL is currently implementing a model-based, requirements-driven process to improve the development process for future missions and projects.
JPL's New York office will be led by Brian Aitken, who joined the company last year from New York City-based Assembly, Advertising Age's 2018 Media Agency of the Year.
JPL opened its first apartment building in the city in October.
JPL's ratings reflect moderate linkages with its parent, Jubilant Life Sciences Limited (JLS), which has a weaker credit profile on account of lower profitability and commodity-price driven volatility in its life-science chemicals business.
"We hit the Martian atmosphere at 12,300 mph (19,800 kilometers per hour), and the whole sequence to touching down on the surface took only six-and-a-half minutes," said InSight project manager Tom Hoffman at JPL. "During that short span of time, InSight had to autonomously perform dozens of operations and do them flawlessly -- and by all indications that is exactly what our spacecraft did."
"Unlike most meteor showers which have a short peak of high meteor rates, the Perseids have a very broad peak as Earth takes more than three weeks to plow through the wide trail of cometary dust from Comet Swift-Tuttle," NASA JPL reported.
"What we learn from the samples collected during this mission has the potential to address whether we're alone in the universe," said Ken Farley, a JPL scientist with the Mars 2020 project.
