It innovation at ames l.jpg
IT Innovation at Ames

  • ARC recognized as Agency innovation leader in:

    • High-performance networking,

    • Computational services, and

    • Information security

  • Leverage specialized facilities (SOC, N254 IX, containerized data center, test beds, etc.)

  • Silicon Valley location provides ARC with unique technology partnership opportunities

  • Increased emphasis on innovation for mission enablement – working with missions at proposal phase

    • Will leverage NASA Space Act Agreements to benefit NASA and the public

Presentation Title—2—March 5, 2010


Network innovations l.jpg
Network Innovations

  • Working to re-start network innovation project within Agency.

  • Focus will involve merging other IT technologies with emerging network technologies

  • The innovation approach will involve collaborations and information sharing with industry, other Federal Agencies and academia

Presentation Title—3—March 5, 2010


It security innovation lab l.jpg
IT Security Innovation Lab

  • Social media security & policy whitepaper

  • Centralized management & deployment of low cost, open source, high verification dedicated firewalls for project & mission use

  • Algorithm-based risk score calculation for combined vulnerability assessment tools

  • Low cost penetration testing program for agency.

  • Performed in-depth security analysis of 3g "Microcell" devices deemed unsupportable due to security and operational concerns. 

Presentation Title—4—March 5, 2010
