HPWREN Photo - Raven and Hawk

June 29, 2010
HPWREN Photo - Raven and Hawk A dispute between a raven and a hawk is caught on film by a wide-angle, automatic motion-detect camera at a High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network (HPWREN) backbone site on Lyons Peak, a mountain top near San Diego, Calif. While it may look like the hawk is after the raven, HPWREN researchers have observed that, more often than not, it is the raven who is harassing the hawk, especially in flight. HPWREN is a National Science Foundation funded network research program that also functions as a collaborative cyberinfrastructure on research, education and first responder activities. It includes creating, demonstrating and evaluating a non-commercial, prototype, high-performance, wide-area, wireless network in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties. The network includes backbone nodes at the University of California, San Diego, and San Diego State University campuses, and a number of "hard to reach" areas in remote environments.
