Legacy MBARI software testing on new operating systems and hardware
Project Manager: Todd Ruston

The HP-Unix systems that run the ROV control and data collection software will no longer be supported by HP. Parts for these machines are becoming harder to find, and support for the operating systems will be phased out. Available replacement hardware requires new operating system software, HP-UX 11i. Compatibility of MBARI developed software with the new system software is not guaranteed, and testing and updating should be done before a system failure requires an emergency replacement with a new operating system.

This project is intended to allocate time for coordination between software developers and IS on testing and planning for the future support of existing MBARI-developed software running on affected platforms.
