A four-person team of engineers from NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston will be on board the U.S. Navy's USS Portland Artemis I recovery ship with the software tool created specifically for Orion.
"Sasquatch is the software NASA uses to predict large footprints — that's why we call it Sasquatch — of the various debris that is released from the capsule as it is reentering and coming through descent," said Sarah Manning, a Sasquatch operator and aerospace engineer from the Engineering Directorate at Johnson.

The hardware jettisoned, or released, during parachute deployment includes drogue and pilot parachutes that help initially slow and stabilize Orion, along with other elements necessary for the parachute sequence to deploy. The primary objective for the Sasquatch team is to help get the ship as close as possible to recover Orion quickly. A secondary objective is to recover as much hardware as possible.

The Kennedy Space Center Exchange Store recently began selling two patches representing the center's Exploration Ground Systems (EGS) Landing and Recovery Team. Both patches depict NASA's Artemis Orion spacecraft.

Two other patches were designed, produced and sold by Jim Schultz ("Three Inches Under" on eBay) based on t-shirt designs that were worn by members of the Artemis recovery dive team. The patches were then subsequently bought by the team.
