Who's Using Apache OODT

Early and current adopters of Object Oriented Data Technology

Proven in scientific research.

Our "Customers"

Since its inception, OODT has been "science neutral", ready to profile resources with extensible metadata, retrieve resources regardless of platform and data format, catalog resources with automatic metadata extraction, and archive resources for later use. With such an open-ended model, Apache OODT can work in any number of disciplines, both science and otherwise.

Current users of OODT include:

NASA's next generation Earth science decadal missions and their data processing systems
Including the Orbiting Carbon Observatory, the NPP Sounder PEATE project, and the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) missions, as well as legacy missions like Seawinds/QuickSCAT.
DARPA's emerging XDATA program
Apache OODT was selected to help support the DARPA XDATA program, developing a platform substrate combining Apache Hadoop, Apache Tika, and OODT, along with the WINGS workflow system for use in intelligence applications.
MIT Haystack Observatory
The MIT Haystack Observatory and JPL have been funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation on a project called RAPID (NSF Award ID: 1229036). RAPID (Radio Array of Portable Interferometric Detectors) will leverage Apache OODT for its next generation data management system providing scientific workflows and data processing for investigations of ionospheric phenomena, solar radio emission, the Galactic synchrotron background, and ultra-high energy cosmic rays via airshower emission.
The U.S. National Climate Assessment
Specifically, supporting 2 projects.
  • Regional Climate Model Evaluation System (RCMES) project A cloud-based data-point model for storing remote sensing observations and rapidly and efficiently accessing them, along with a dynamic, easy to install evaluation toolkit including the ability to regrid data, quickly perform metrics like Bias, Root Mean Squared Error (RMSE) and Probability Distribution Functions (PDF) useful in comparing climate model output to remotely sensed observations. RCMES is also supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation's G8 Initiative, and its ExArch program (ID: 1125798).
  • JPL's Snow Hydrology Science Computing Facility supporting analysis of snow optics and properties for the Western US and Alaska, and the Hindu Kush Himalaya regions of the world.
The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) South Africa project
Specifically helping to support science operations, file management, search and processing of the KAT-7 and MeerKAT precursor arrays.
The U.S. National Radio Astronomy Observatory
Deployed and supporting the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA) program and its data reduction pipeline.
National Cancer Institute's (NCI's) Early Detection Research Network (EDRN)
Over 40 institutions all performing research into discovering biomarkers which are early indicators of disease.
NASA's Planetary Data System (PDS)
NASA's planetary data archive, a repository and registry for all planetary data collected over the past 30+ years.
Children's Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA)
OODT is currently supporting research and data analysis within the Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and its Laura P. and Leland K. Whittier Virtual Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (VPICU).
NASA's Lunar Mapping and Modeling Project (LMMP)
Catalog and Archival of scientific data about the moon. From digitial elevation models to lunar gravity models to mosaic imagery, the LMMP Project is a core resource for lunar research and exploration.
