JaJa in the News for Digital Archiving and Preservation Technology

Professor Joseph JaJa (ECE/UMIACS/ISR) was featured in the Federal Times for his efforts in helping the National Archives preserve federal records. His research team’s Producer–Archive Workflow Network (PAWN) software will enable federal agencies to submit their records easily and with the assurance that it is transmitted correctly and securely. PAWN is a component of JaJa's larger ADAPT (An Approach to Digital Archiving and Preservation Technology) project.

"This software, which was funded by [National Archives], enables you to remotely and securely transmit data—all electronically," JaJa told Federal Times.

Eventually, all federal records will be tied into the Electronic Records Archive (ERA), which will be deployed in September. Four agencies—the Patent and Trademark Office, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Navy Oceanographic Office and National Nuclear Security Administration—will test the new system's effectiveness. Lockheed Martin Corp., the prime contractor for ERA, is developing the software for the program.
