When I was talking about sonar I was talking simulations involving multiple
buoys tracking multiple targets over many hours - I can't go into too much
detail about it but the overall data collected was huge.

Also, take bond-angle, bond-length calculations in chemistry - I've seen
temp data files on DEC-ALPHA that are huge - measured in many hundreds of
Gbs - the point I'm making is that overall, when processing on the fly that
the overall data size can be deceptive to those used to thinking in Mb or
even Gb on a PC.
