Abstract : High Performance Computing (HPC) is an enabling technology for a large class of Army needs including weapon system design, simulation and modeling, intelligence, automation, advanced manufacturing, and training. Recognizing this, in 1989 Army established the Army HPC Research Center. The Center consists of four integrated activities: interdisciplinary research into various aspects of HPC including novel solution techniques, advanced algorithms, applications, and graphics and visualization (GV); evaluation of advanced computing systems and implementation of an advanced HPC environment; infrastructure support and technology transfer to Army and other DOD activities; and, an aggressive outreach program through participation of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and Minority Institutions. The prime contractor for the Center is the University of Minnesota; its HBCU partners are Clark Atlanta, Florida A&M, Howard, and Jackson State Universities; and its industrial partner, the Minnesota Supercomputer Center, Inc. (MSCI), maintains and operates the supercomputing resources of the Army HPC Research Center. (KAR) P. 2
