The eSTAR network – agent architectures for astronomy

  title={The eSTAR network – agent architectures for astronomy},
  author={Alasdair Allan and Tim Naylor and Eric S. Saunders},
The eSTAR Project uses intelligent agent technologies to carry out resource discovery, submit observation requests and analyze the reduced data returned from a meta-network of robotic telescopes. Linking ground based telescopes with astronomical satellites, and using the emerging field of intelligent agent architectures to provide crucial autonomous decision making in software, the project has succeeded in combining data archives and research class telescopes, along with distributed computing… CONTINUE READING
