The Computing and Archiving Research Environment (CoARE) project essentially targets to enable multiple data integration from DOST-ASTI-initiated projects and collaborative projects with other agencies that have high requirements for data storage and high-performance computing.

Project Objectives

To foster collaboration by providing a platform for easy storage, analysis and sharing of environmental and geospatial data, as well as provide better access to high performance computing resources by:
  • establishing a durable and highly available repository for environmental data, including systems for archiving and access, and providing recommendations to the PGIF on data sharing, access, and storage; and,
  • upgrading the existing computing system facility intended to test and run computationally intensive applications for numerical weather prediction, climate modeling, as well as analytics and data modeling.
Expected Outputs
  1. A durable and highly available storage repository for environmental data, including systems for archiving and access
  2. Expanded computing capacity
  3. Public Key-Infrastructure (PKI) or Single Sign-On (SSO) integration with iGovPhils Project
  4. Catalogue service for searching archived and real-time data
  5. Implemented data usage policy of the agencies/users of the facility
  6. Standards for data access, storage, and sharing
  7. Wiki Portal and Users’ Training
Target Beneficiaries
  • Meteorologists, Weather Forecasters
  • Researchers, Scientists
  • Students
Expected Outcome
  1. Consolidated effort and resources pertaining to environmental and geospatial data, as a result of having a unified platform for easy storage, analysis, and sharing of environmental and geospatial data, as well as providing better access to high-performance computing resources.
  2. Enhanced policy and decision-making for disaster management.

About Us

Over the years, the emergence of information and communications technology has greatly affected the lives of people in the world crossing borders among countries and bringing access closer to one another. In the same token, the birth of Microelectronics has resulted to progress in the development of smaller, lighter and more efficient electronic devices.

This development has a striking resemblance to the birth of one of the research and development institutes of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) – the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI). It was in 1987 when President Corazon C. Aquino renamed the then National Science and Technology Authority (NSTA) to Department of Science and Technology (DOST). As an offshoot of such sequential events, the DOST-ASTI was created as a research and development institute of the Department by virtue of Executive Order No. 128.
