One of the principal drivers for developing the Grids is to empower individual researchers in Universities and research organisations with the technology to handle massive amounts of data expected to be produced in modern day experiments and observations in space and engineering. It is expected that no single organisation will have the capacity to handle the data or carry out the analysis. Therefore, it is envisaged that the data will be accessed from a distributed set of archives and the analysis will be performed using a heterogeneous system of computer clusters. These are especially true of two areas of astronomy we propose to persue in this application. In the first round of the e-Science programme PPARC funded the GridOneD project whose aim was to develop generic Grid technology, specifically wrapping legacy codes and peer-to-peer computing, under the Java-based graphical system called Triana. We propose to further strenghten GridOneD and implement a Grid for real applications. The proposed technology is absolutely essential in two key core programmes of PPARC, namely, radio pulsar and gravitational wave astronomies. Our aim is to deliver both signal processing and ontology services on the Grids so that any user with Grid connectivity is able to analyse data sets from radio pulsar archives. Our approach is to set up teams (consisting of two or more persons) that possess both Grid expertise and the relevant scientific knowledge so that the goals of the project can be achieved in an effective and timely manner.
