CIMA Based Remote Instrument and Data Access: An Extension into the Australian e-Science Environment
The Common Instrument Middleware Architecture (CIMA) is being used as a core component of a portal based remote instrument access system being developed as an Australian e-Science project. The CIMA model is being enhanced to use federated Grid storage infrastructure (SRB), and the Kepler workflow system to, as much as possible, automate data management, and the facile extraction and generation of instrument and experimental metadata. The Personal Grid Library is introduced as a user friendly portlet interface to SRB data and metadata, and which supports customisable metadata schemas. An Instrument Instruction Module has been introduced as a CIMA plug-in for instrument control. A virtual instrument portlet provides a simulation of the instrument during a data collection. The system is being further augmented with a tool for collaborative data visualisation and evaluation.
