Stereo vision. As part of the parallel computer vision project, Jon Webb is using Fx to develop stereo vision applications. Peter Dinda is exploring the potential for task parallelism in these applications.
Magnetic resonanance imaging (MRI). Claudson Bornstein is working with Doug Noll to implement a magnetic resonance imaging application from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
Synthetic aperture radar (SAR). Peter Lieu and Dave O'Hallaron are using Fx to implement a synthetic aperture radar application from Sandia National Laboratories. Here are the results for a 512x512 SAR code written in Fx and compiled onto 64 iWarp nodes: (Click on a thumbnail image to see the full-sized image)

Radar signal processing. Dave O'Hallaron used Fx to develop a narrowband tracking radar benchmark program from MIT Lincoln Laboratories.
Airshed modeling. As part of an NSF Grand Challenge grant, Edward Segall is using Fx to implement a parallel airshed model from Carnegie Mellon, Cal Tech, and MIT, that models the formation, reaction, and transport of atmospheric pollutants and related chemical species.
