Speakers: David Reiser, Chief Engineer, Volpe Center, U.S. DOT, CSC
Ram Raju, Senior IT Architect, Volpe Center, U.S. DOT, CSC
Shane Kent, Software Engineer, Volpe Center, U.S. DOT, CSC

The team will describe how they developed an application based on open source software for the FAA’s System Wide Information Management (SWIM) and Integrated Terminal Weather System (ITWS) programs, at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Volpe Center, under the direction of Tony Colon. They will discuss how open source software and Apache Camel enabled them to provide real-time weather updates in industry standard data formats to users of the National Airspace System (NAS). They will also present a live demonstration of a weather-viewing application that reflects the value of using open source software and open standards in public-sector deployments.

David Reiser has been the Chief Engineer for the the FAA’s System Wide Information Management (SWIM) and Integrated Terminal Weather System (ITWS) integration project at the Volpe Center since 2008. As a computer science student at the University of Utah he wrote large, Pure Lisp programs just for the fun of it. Years later, he is thrilled to be doing pretty much the same thing with MapReduce and the cloud, and getting paid for it.

Ramakrishna (Ram) Raju is a senior IT architect working for Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC). He is actively engaged in the development of innovative open source solutions at the US Department of Transportation’s Volpe Center. He is an Open Group Certified Architect, an Open Source enthusiast and has worked with CSC’s Leading Edge forum on cutting edge research involving Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) frameworks. His other interests include Big Data, Mobile Computing and Riding the Camel.

Shane Kent is a senior software engineer for Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC). He has been a contractor for the U.S. Department of Transportation for the past 14 years working on a number of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) programs involving traffic flow management and terminal weather systems.
