1. Project Goals/Objectives:

2. Role of this project in supporting PEER’s mission (vision):

Testbeds are required to ensure that PEER’s methodology is elucidated from end to end, and illustrated for the benefit of PEER researchers and practitioners. This coordination project is necessary to ensure that individual testbed projects are effectively integrated. Testbed coordinator also offers an overview of all the testbeds in a single researcher.

3. Methodology Employed:

Combined testbed reports. These reports, outlined in Years 5 and 6, include explicit authorship responsibilities and submission deadlines. They have helped to ensure that projects fit together and produce necessary results. webpage. This commercially hosted website offers a locus for disseminating publications, presentations, contacts, and other information.

4. Brief Description of past year’s accomplishments (Year 6) & more detail on expected Year 7 accomplishments:

Reports. Authored various report sections, most notably Introduction in Van Nuys & UC Science reports, facility definition in Van Nuys report, Hazard chapter of UC Science report, and portions of Recommendations of UC Science report.
