lelitsch writes “The Washington Post reports that the initial pilot of the Virtual Border Fence planned by the DHS and subcontracted to Boeing has been a miserable failure. A lot of the points in the report have the hallmark of death-march software development projects. Some choice quotes include ‘did not work as planned or meet the needs of the U.S. Border Patrol,’ ‘DHS officials do not yet know the type of terrain where the fencing is to be constructed,’ and ‘the design will not be used as the basis for future… development.’ The article notes that Boeing was forced to deliver ’something’ early as President Bush pushed for immigration reform in Congress in 2006. That reform effort died last year in the Senate.”

coondoggie points out a Networkworld story about plans for modular satellite technology which is intended to replace modern, “monolithic” devices. The project hopes to solve issues of scalability and reliability by separating the typical satellite systems and allowing the different modules to change function when necessary. Quoting: “According to DARPA such a virtual satellite effectively constitutes a “bus in the sky” - wherein customers need only provide and deploy a payload module suited to their immediate mission need, with the supporting features supplied by a global network of infrastructure modules already resident on-orbit and at critical ground locations. In addition, there can be sharing of resources between various “spacecraft” that are within sufficient range for communication. DARPA said … within the F6 network all subsystems and payloads can be treated like a uniquely addressable computing peripheral or network device. Such an approach can provide a long sought after “plug-n-play” capability, according to the agency.”
