Visvasuresh (Victor) Govindaswamy, PhD

Associate Professor of Computer Science


College of Arts and Sciences

Dr. Victor Govindaswamy teaches Computer Science courses and his research involved real time distributed systems and software engineering when he was actively involved in the United States’ Department of Defense (DoD)’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) sponsored DeSiDeRaTa middleware project. The DeSiDeRaTa middleware, which stands for Dynamic, Scalable, Dependable, Real-Time systems, considers network loading information to make more effective application management action decisions.

Dr. Govindaswamy also came up with a novel process, using the DeSiDeRaTa middleware, by which any application can be guaranteed to achieve rigorous QoS objectives such as dependability, timely event response, unlimited continuous availability, efficient resource utilization, and scalability. It enables applications to work in dynamic environments and with dynamic workloads, without the need for the application developers and programmers to write massive pages of code to provide these services. The DeSiDeRaTa project’s technology was used in the United States’ Naval Surface Warfare Centers (NSWC’s) HiPer-D Testbed, which links to the Aegis, DD-21 and carrier ship classes. Demonstrations have involved many Navy systems, including, Anti Air Warfare (AAW) system, Advanced Tomahawk Weapons Control System (ATWCS), Automatic Pilot Examination (APEX) systems and Joint Maritime Command Information System (JMCIS). The DeSiDeRata was also used to convert an existing, non-distributed NASA/Goddard Satellite Command and Control System, ITOS, to a dynamically distributed system.  

Dr. Govindaswamy had also researched in security, telemedicine, telehealth and green technology. He had developed novel schemes such as the RECHOKe (REpeatedly CHOose and Keep for responsive flows, REpeatedly CHOose and Kill for unresponsive flows), RCUBE (Receiver-Window Modified Random Early Detection queues with RECHOKe), RWM (Receiver-Window Modified) and Clumpsort, and had also developed a software process that guarantees to provide survivability, timeliness, scalability and profiling services, even under heavy tactical loads, to applications without the need for writing massive programs to provide such services. His schemes aim to help to improve the computer networks, making them not only faster but safer for users to use. Since he had introduced his schemes, his schemes have remained the best solution so far.

Dr. Govindaswamy is also the director of the Robotics, Apps and 3D Programming (RAP) Summer Camps as part of his CS-4NE1 (STEM-4NE1) initiative that aims to bring and popularize STEM fields to middle and high school kids. A mentoring program is also provided for the camp participants.

  1. Involved in more 400 international conferences 
  2. Involved in more than a dozen journals as an editor
  3. Chaired about 5 international conferences
  4. Selected by the United States Department of Commerce’s $4.7 billion BTOP (Broadband Technology Opportunities Program) as an Expert Reviewer
