San Francisco State University receives JavaOne award

based sensor network that makes real-time information about the San Francisco Bay water conditions freely accessible to everyone." In addition to Sun's Java programming language and networking platforms, NetBEAMS uses the results of Agilent Laboratories' research in measurement information services and cellular monitoring infrastructure to enable the sensors to collect and forward oceanographic data. Sun and Agilent are part of the Java Distributed Data Acquisition and Control (JDDAC) community, which provides key, common open-source components and adaptors that enable Java networks to seamlessly "plug and play" transducers of many kinds without error or confusion.

"NetBEAMS measurement research will enable -- for the first time -- large-scale environmental monitoring of changing conditions that impact the quality of San Francisco Bay," said Darlene J.S. Solomon, vice president and director of Agilent Laboratories. "Monitoring large ecological systems with today's technology is much like the adage of three blindfolded people trying to understand an elephant by touching just the tail, trunk and leg. This new technology has the potential to put into place a much more pervasive measurement capability, allowing us to get access to details and understanding that is not possible today."

This project was made possible by a grant from Agilent Technologies and in-kind support from Sun Microsystems. Collaborators included Sun and Agilent researchers, many of whom volunteered their time and expertise, and faculty, researchers and graduate students from SFSU's Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies, Computer Science, Geosciences and Electrical Engineering Departments. A model of the system, which is designed for deployment in any marine environment, is operating in the San Francisco Bay near the shoreline of the Romberg Tiburon Center in Marin County.

"This isn't simply a case of industry providing support to higher education," said Professor
