ISR-affiliated Professor Joseph Jájá (UMIACS/ECE) is at the forefront of helping the National Archives preserve federal records. His team’s Producer–Archive Workflow Network (PAWN) software will enable agencies to submit their records easily and with the assurance that it is transmitted correctly. PAWN is a component of Jájá's larger ADAPT project, an approach to digital archiving and preservation technology.

Jájá recently told Federal Times, "This software, which was funded by [National Archives], enables you to remotely and securely transmit data—all electronically."

Eventually, all federal records will be tied into the Electronic Records Archive (ERA), which will be deployed in September when four agencies—the Patent and Trademark Office, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Navy Oceanographic Office and National Nuclear Security Administration—will test its effectiveness. Lockheed Martin Corp., the prime contractor for ERA, is developing the software for the program.
