Apache OODT is a grid middleware framework for science data processing, information integration, and retrieval.
OODT is used on a number of successful projects at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory/California Institute of Technology, and many other research institutions and universities, specifically those part of the:
- National Cancer Institute's (NCI's) Early Detection Research Network (EDRN) project - 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.
- various Earth Science data processing missions, including Seawinds/QuickSCAT, the Orbiting Carbon Observatory, the NPP Sounder PEATE project, and the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission.
