Reliable Multicast for Continuous Data Transmission for Nuclear Treaty Verification

Project Summary

This project involved working groups created to set up the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty verification network, an international network connecting 321 monitoring stations around the world. The goal was to monitor in real-time whether there are any activities that could be the result of nuclear weapon testing. Berkeley Lab’s work on this project focused on developing new multicast protocols. This project was led by Deb Agarwal.
