Orbit@home was a BOINC-based distributed computing project of the Planetary Science Institute. It uses the "Orbit Reconstruction, Simulation and Analysis" framework to optimize the search strategies that are used to find near-Earth objects.
On March 4, 2008, Orbit@home completed the installation of its new server and officially opened to new members. On April 11, Orbit@home launched a Windows version of their client. On February 16, 2013, the project was halted due to lack of grant funding. However, on July 23, 2013, the Orbit@home project was selected for funding by NASA's Near Earth Object Observation program. It was announced that Orbit@home is to resume operations sometime in 2014 or 2015. As of July 13, 2018, Orbit@home is offline according to its website, and the upgrade announcement has been removed.
