High-Performance Computing Facility (Cy-Tera) Mobile Laboratory for Archaeology and Cultural Heritage (STARLab) Atmospheric Research Facility Visualisation and Imaging Laboratory
The mission of the High Performance Computing Facility is to provide compute and data resources to the research community of Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean region, and to establish itself as the national supercomputing facility of Cyprus. Cy-Tera is an innovative hybrid machine, which is the first supercomputer in Cyprus, and the biggest open access supercomputer in the Middle East. STARLab is a unique infrastructure consisting of a mobile Lab with state-of-the-art instrumentation for 3D digital documentation and surveying, geophysics and non-invasive, non-destructive physico-chemical analyses for the research, documentation, conservation and preservation of cultural heritage. The mission of the Atmospheric Research Facility at Agia Marina Xyliatou is to provide high quality, long-term observations of key atmospheric pollutants relevant to air quality and climate change. Located at a rural site in Cyprus, the station is co-operated with the Department of Labour Inspection, which is in charge of the air quality network in Cyprus. It offers on-site facilities and supportive infrastructure for research, development, and testing of technologies related to atmospheric measurements. The Visualisation and Imaging Laboratory allows researchers from all disciplines of science, engineering and art to conduct simulation and visualisation research to better understand complex phenomena, and translate data into images on large-scale and high resolution visualisation walls or other display devices.
Unmanned Systems Research Laboratory (USRL) Linear Fresnel Facility (LIFE) Solar Research Facility (PROTEAS)  
The Unmanned Systems Research Laboratory (USRL) offers on-site facilities and related infrastructure for research, development, and testing of technologies related to UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). The mission of the USRL is to provide high-quality observations of atmospheric pollutants and other parameters relevant to air quality and climate change. UAV’s can carry an increasing amount of sensors and fill the gap between ground-based and satellite measurements by providing the capacity to perform long-term monitoring observations necessary for assessing climate change in our region. The mission of the Linear Fresnel (LIFE) facility is to pursue research and development of solar technologies with an emphasis on their utilization in built environment. It is located at the main CyI campus in Athalassa and it serves the cooling and heating needs of the Novel Technologies Laboratory (NTL) Building. The mission of the PROTEAS facility is to pursue research and development of solar technologies. Located adjacent to the sea on the south coast of Cyprus near Limassol, it provides an optimal facility to develop and test in situ these technologies, optimized for island – coastal environment. The facility offers laboratories and supportive infrastructure for research, development and testing of technologies related to Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), Solar Thermal Energy (STE) and thermal Desalination of Sea Water (DSW).
