Abstract
In today’s information-based society, global operation in virtually any domain is significantly, if not completely, dependent upon high-performance processing systems. These high-performance processing systems are complex and frequently composed of heterogeneous processor subsystems. Such systems are typically static in nature, and predetermined prior to deployment. If mission dynamics or system performance change, these systems are limited to their originally pre-determined mode of operation, resulting in inefficient use of resources and performance penalties at best and catastrophic failure at worst. Interruption in operation whether the result of cyber attack or system failure due to inefficient or incorrect usage often leads to catastrophic consequences. System failure and attacks on information systems and infrastructure are everyday occurrences. To address an area that needs immediate attention in the protection of mission critical systems, Sentar proposes a system for Self-Aware Reconstitution, Reconfiguration, and Repurposing (Self-Aware R3). The opportunity exists to develop broadly applicable self-aware systems that are capable of reconstitution after a successful attack or system failure, reconfiguration to balance resources, and repurposing to address dynamically changing priorities.
