ESCHER is incubated at Vanderbilt University as a unit of ISIS (http://escher.isis.vanderbilt.edu/) with the intention of spinning off an open, nonprofit corporation (501(c)(3)) in the near future. ESCHER develops and integrates a national infrastructure required for promoting the creation, transition, integration and maturation of open tools and technologies that enable predictable and controllable development of trustworthy embedded systems. The key components of this technical infrastructure are the following:

  1. ESCHER web site at http://www.escherinstitute.org/, which provides structured access to the ESCHER repository.
  2. Quality controlled ESCHER Repository, which includes services for content management and navigation.
  3. Quality monitoring and reporting tools.

The incubation year of ESCHER is co-funded by NSF ($300K), DARPA ($300K), Boeing ($250K), GM ($250K) and Raytheon ($250K).

Membership in the Chess ESCHER workgroup is currently limited to ESCHER personnel at UC Berkeley and Vanderbilt.
