Abstract: The Common Instrument Middleware Architecture (CIMA) model is being adapted and extended for a remote instrument access system being developed as an Australian eScience project. Enhancements include the use of SRB federated Grid storage infrastructure, and the introduction of the Kepler workflow system to automate data management and provide facile extraction and generation of instrument and experimental metadata. The SRB infrastructure will in effect underpin a Grid enabled network of X-ray diffraction instruments. The CIMA model is being further extended to include instrument control, and is being embedded as a component in a feature rich GridSphere portal based system for remote access.
