RAPIDware was a research project on the design and operation of
adaptive software, conducted in the Software Engineering
and Network Systems (SENS) Laboratory at Michigan State University
Specifically, RAPIDware addressed the design of
high-assurance, adaptive software to
protect critical infrastructures (e.g., financial networks, power
systems, command and control environments) from extreme operating conditions,
component failures and cyber-attack. The project involved five MSU faculty members and ten
graduate research assistants.

RAPIDware was supported by a grant from the Department of the
Navy, Office of Naval Research under
its Critical Infrastructure Protection and High Confidence,
Software (CIP/SW) Program of the University Research Initiative
(URI). The project started in 2001 and continued through 2007.
