The summer 2009 Polar Grid Research team will focus on two components related the support of the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS). Those two components are the documentation of the installation the 64-node cluster at Elizabeth City State University, and the conversion of Matlab generated code into stand-alone executable binaries.
The documentation of the Polar Grid cluster named "Madogo" will consist of the inventory and description of all components, explanation of power consumption, definition of storage ability, and description of software capabilities.
To combat implementation limitations with Matlab proprietary code, a method of converting the CReSIS SAR Processor Lite (CSARP-Lite) into binaries which can be run on any standardized cluster without the need for a Matlab Clustering component such as the Matlab Distributed Computing Toolkit is necessary. The stand-alone binaries will then be run on the Elizabeth City Madogo cluster to test for capatability.
