Abstract:

Faculty and researchers in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University have been studying the challenges of information management and high-assurance computing for a variety of demanding settings, including cloud computing and data transmission in complex network environments. The main objective of the project titled Engaging Students via Innovative Militarily Useful Technologies was to expose students to the research and use of these technologies which have potential application in military scenarios and in nationally important critical infrastructure areas. By exposing students to this type of research, we can come closer to realizing the potential application of these tools, and the students themselves benefit from the experience in many ways. Historically, a significant percentage of Cornell students have pursued careers in the military, with military contractors, and in the civilian critical infrastructure areas. During the course of this program students were involved in four main areas Scalable Landmark Recognition ePaparazzi, the Software-defined Network Interface Card SoNIC, Smart Grid Security GridControl, and additional projects relating to specific aspects of the Isis2 software platform.
