Abstract:

The Cornell University Castor project was funded over a two-year period to create new technical options aimed at demanding event-notification settings. Applications of this type are common in warfighting and other DoD settings but currently are limited by inadequate scalability, reliability and poor performance. Castor accomplished all goals originally stated in the SOW and in fact went beyond expectations. The team delivered a wide range of cutting-edge solutions, some of which are finding rapid uptake by major AF technology vendors. Our work has received keen interest from the very highest levels of industry, including CTO-level staff at the Air Force itself as well as Intel, Microsoft, Amazon, Red Hat, Cisco and we are collaborating closely with these and other vendors, including IBM and Raytheon. The final status report summarizes accomplishments and includes copies of some of the major publications by our group. Much of the software we developed is available for download from Cornell, as is a video demonstration of the Live Objects technology, which was briefed to the AF CTO, Mr. Kent Werner, in Spring 2008.
