Abstract : The purpose of this grant was two fold. The first purpose was to bring Internet capabilities to the Knoxville College campus for purposes of performing computational AFOSR research. The second purpose was to bring advanced UNIX computing capabilities to the campus and link them with similar capabilities at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville using the Internet. It was decided to accomplish this task by purchasing portions of the equipment, software, and equipment through the University of Tennessee. This purchasing of these services through UTK resulted in a 43% discount from Sun Micro systems. This also allowed us to use all of the UTK site licenses for network services. As specified in the initial grant, ten Sun Workstations were purchased 3 Sparcstation 10's and 7 Sparcstation LX's with the associated support equipment. In addition, 7 IBM compatibles were purchased for the Division of Natural Science, 1 Tektronix color laser printer, and 1 CD-ROM maker along with additional software to network these machines to the Sparcstation network.
