The DETERlab Testbed.
(cyber-DEfense Technology Experimental Researc laboratory Testbed)
The DETERlab testbed is a general-purpose experimental infrastructure that supports research and development on next-generation cyber security technologies. The testbed allows repeatable medium-scale Internet emulation experiments for a broad range of network security projects.
Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing.
The Daedalus Project.
is working, as part of the Infopad Project, to develop wireless
networking strategies for microcellular systems that make it possible
to support cellular hand-off while processing real-time data streams
such as video. A major new direction is examine the issues of
wireless/wireline network integration, internetwork operation, and
end-to-end quality of service guarantees.
We are testing these ideas in an in-building, metropolitan-area, and
wide-area testbed that we call
BARWAN (Bay Area Research Wireless Access Network)
Climate Modeling. A project I was previously involved with was archiving model output into an Object Relational database, trying to do this in a way that will minimize the blocking effects on the computation while spooling to tertiary storage.
This involves network optimatization, a schema for data storage ( BigSur) so that queries may be run against this data in the same was as that obtained via measurements from EOSDIS - Earth Observing System/Distributed Information System (EOSDIS). and some involvement in the actual atmospheric chemistry:
GATOR is an effort to parallelize a model of the earth's atmospheric chemistry, and integrate it into an Earth Systems Model encompassing atmospheric dynamics and physics, ocean dynamics, physics and eventually chemistry, satellite data, scientific visualization, and a very large database.

The Tenet Project explores issues in real-time and high-performance network computing.
