This work addresses mission planning for autonomous underwater gliders based on predictions of an uncertain, time-varying current field. Glider submersibles are highly sensitive to prevailing currents so mission planners must account for ocean tides and eddies. Previous work in variable-current path planning assumes that current predictions are perfect, but(More)
Foreign exchange (FX) markets see a transaction volume of over $2 trillion per day. A number of standard ways of conducting business have been developed in the FX industry. However, current FX specifications are informal and their business semantics unclear. The resulting implementations tend to be complex and compliance with the standards unverifiable.(More)
One of the key challenges to successful systems-of- systems integration using Web services technologies is how to address crosscutting architectural concerns such as policy management, governance, and authentication, while still maintaining the lightweight implementation and deployment flavor that distinguishes Web services from earlier attempts at(More)
This chapter presents a variety of applications of norms. These applications include governance in sociotechnical systems, data licensing and data collection, understanding software development teams, requirements engineering, assurance, natural resource allocation, wireless grids, autonomous vehicles, serious games, and virtual worlds. 1998 ACM Subject(More)
The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) will deploy a network of in-situ sensors, orbital assets and numerical models that synthesize collected data to forecast ocean conditions. We have implemented a prototype mission planning system for autonomous glider submersibles within this infrastructure. This system will be refined for the upcoming Observing(More)
The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) will implement ocean sensor networks covering a diversity of oceanic environments, ranging from the coastal to the deep ocean. Construction will begin in Fall 2009, with deployment phased over five years. The integrating feature of the OOI is a comprehensive Cyberinfrastructure (CI), whose design is based on(More)
The dramatic reduction of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean will increase human activities in the coming years. This activity will be driven by increased demand for energy and the marine resources of an Arctic Ocean accessible to ships. Oil and gas exploration, fisheries, mineral extraction, marine transportation, research and development, tourism, and search and(More)
