    The US National Science Foundation will sink millions into an effort to enhance the design of the World Wide Web.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US National Science Foundation will sink millions into an effort to enhance the design of the World Wide Web under the Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) program, aerospace and technology giant Raytheon said in a press release.

    "The National Science Foundation has awarded $8 million to Raytheon BBN Technologies to continue the redesign of the Internet," the release, issued on Monday, stated.

    The release described GENI as a collaborative community of scientists from around the world that were working to meet the performance, security, and agility demands of new and emerging technologies online.

    Under the new award, Raytheon will oversee expansion of the GENI platform to continue advances in education, medicine, network research and public safety, according to the release.

    "GENI is a tremendous success, surpassing its original goals," Raytheon GENI Project Director Mark Berman said in the release. "Today, GENI is helping to fundamentally change the way in which the world gathers and shares information."

    GENI is an online laboratory for networking and systems research with 6,500 collaborators from more than 180 universities in 30 countries and has produced new applications in such areas as computer-intensive education, first responder communications and storm tracking, the release added.
