Abstract
This project proposes the initial design and development of the Integrated Advanced Wideband Autonomic Computing System (IAWACS) technology. IAWACS will integrate sensors, algorithms and software components for self-monitoring, self-recovery and self-protection across application, operating system kernel, virtual machine and hardware levels of DOD critical systems. By analogy with the traditional Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS), IAWACS will provide situational awareness and control in the Software Protection battlespace, namely the extended environment in which critical DOD applications and data exist and operate. The extended environment includes the operating system kernel, other applications and any virtual machine environment in which an application is executing.
