Abstract : Over the course of this project, four major releases (1.4, 1.5, 2.0, and 3.0) of the Cronus distributed computing environment were produced. These considerable expanded and improved the functionality of the system, increased the system's robustness and usability, improved the system's performance and security, and improved the software engineering process by which the system was developed. In addition, two releases (5.3 and 5.4) of the Advanced Network Management (ANM) system were developed under this effort. This report is organized into 7 sections. Section 1 is the introduction, Section 2 gives overviews of Cronus and ANM. Section 3 gives a chronological description of the progress made during this project, organized by software releases of the systems. Section 4 summarizes the Cronus software development procedures. Section 5 summarizes technical briefings given during the project. Section 6 describes a number of applications in which Cronus was used. Section 7 discusses technology transfer and publication activities.
