For distributed and network applications, efficient management of program state is critical to performance and func-tionality. To support domain-and application-specific optimization of data movement, we have developed the Inter-net Backplane Protocol (IBP) for controlling storage that is implemented as part the network fabric itself. IBP allows an(More)
Active networks must balance the exibility of a programm-able network infrastructure against the safety and security requirements inherent in sharing that infrastructure. Furthermore , this balance must be achieved while maintaining the usability of the network. The SwitchWare active network architecture is a novel approach to achieving this balance using(More)
Recent advance in network reference based real-time kinematic GPS (NRTK GPS) positioning makes it possible to track moving objects up to centimeter accuracy. This capacity will undoubtedly help implement many new applications for future ITS services, for instance, precise navigation, autonomous driving, lane based traffic or fleet management, lane based(More)
We have developed a classiication of active networking archi-tectures which includes active packets and active extensions. This tax-onomy is based on the nature of the programs used by programmers. Pure active packets, like pure datagrams, carry suucient information for their evaluation. Pure active extensions prepare network elements for evaluation of(More)
Hi-GAL, the Herschel infrared Galactic Plane Survey, is an Open Time Key Project of the Herschel Space Observatory. It will make an unbiased photometric survey of the inner Galactic Plane by mapping a two-degree wide strip in the longitude range | l |< 60 • in five wavebands between 70µm and 500µm. The aim of Hi-GAL is to detect the earliest phases of the(More)
Advanced Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (ARAIM) is a new Aircraft Based Augmentation System (ABAS) technique, firstly presented in the two reports of the GNSS Evolutionary Architecture Study (GEAS). The ARAIM technique offers the opportunity to enable GNSS receivers to serve as a primary means of navigation, worldwide, for precision approach down(More)
From its inception a principal goal of the Next Generation Internet (NGI) has been to find a way to provide reliable, scalable, cost effective, and deployable delivery of data with quality of service (QoS) guarantees as a foundation for innovative NGI applications. But while schemes to provide reliable end-to-end QoS are being actively pursued on a number(More)
