     8The DFA is a system that allows a researcher to construct experiments that
    99span testbeds by dynamically acquiring resources from other testbeds and
    1010configuring them into a single experiment.  As closely as possible that
     
    3737An all of these cases, a researcher specifies the resources and their interconnections to the DFA, which coordinates between the testbeds and connects the resources.

    39 Consider a researcher who wants to connect the following resources into this simple topology:

    43 Resources a, b, and c are directly connected, and c, d, and e are on a shared network. 
     39Consider a researcher who has access to several testbeds and wants to interconnect resources from those testbeds.

     43From disparate testbeds, the DETER Federation System will create a single unified environment.

     47To be more concrete, DETER researchers have used the federation system to interconnect electrical power systems, high speed power simulation, a controlled IP network and a situational awareness display sited at three disparate research labs into a coherent whole.
