Abstract : The Department of Defense High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) 1 aims to establish a world-class, nationwide, integrated infrastructure to support the high-performance computational needs of the defense community for research, development, testing, and evaluation. The HPCMP has established four Major Shared Resource Centers (MSRCs) to coordinate and lead this effort: ARL, CEWES, NAVO and ASC. The Defense Department's high performance computing facilities will be supporting roughly 4,000 scientists and engineers at over 100 defense laboratories, test centers, universities, and industrial sites across the nation. In addition, the MSRCs are establishing collaborative partnerships with several civilian high-performance computing centers in order to draw needed civilian expertise into the DoD. The application areas which will be pursued by this huge community is very broad.
