    $105 million goes to computing center
    Posted by Kenneth Farmer, Wednesday April 25 2007 @ 10:51AM EDT

    Standford News: The U.S. Army has awarded a $105 million, five-year grant to a multi-institution consortium led by Stanford University to build a new home for the Army High-Performance Computing Research Center. The facility will enable advanced simulations to develop new materials for military vehicles and equipment, improve wireless battlefield communication, advance detection of biological or chemical attacks and stimulate innovations in supercomputing itself. The research may spawn civilian innovations as well.

    "Modeling and simulation today play an equal role to theory and physical experimentation in discovery-driven engineering research," says Charbel Farhat, a professor of mechanical engineering and expert on supercomputer simulation who is also a member of the Stanford School of Engineering's Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering. "Using the most advanced high-performance computing resources, a research center of this magnitude has great potential for innovating technology and reducing design-cycle time."

    HPTi Wins $215 Million Army Cooperative Agreement for High Performance Computing Research

    RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--High Performance Technologies, Inc. (HPTi) announced today the company, as part of a consortium, was awarded a cooperative agreement valued at $215 million from the Army Research Laboratory to manage the Army’s High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC). The consortium includes HPTi, Stanford University, NASA Ames Research Center, New Mexico State University, Morgan State University, and the University of Texas at El Paso.

    The AHPCRC conducts fundamental research in computational science and high performance scientific computing. With its consortium partners, HPTi will establish and implement an advanced computing research program in support of the Army’s mission. The program, which includes a five-year base period with an additional five-year option, will focus on enhancing the Army’s operational readiness by providing HPC-based modeling and simulation techniques and advanced visualization. HPTi will lead the computational science support to end users and the program management elements of the cooperative agreement. HPTi will also acquire, install, operate, and manage the program’s HPC system resources.

    “This is a premier program in the HPC industry, and we are very proud to have been selected by the Army to provide these key services to lead the transformation of future land warfare combat systems,” said HPTi president Tim Keenan. “Our roots are in high performance computing, and the chance to use our expertise to work on critical programs for the Army is especially meaningful to our mission of making America a safer place to live.”

    The research program is led by Stanford University and consortium partners New Mexico State University, Morgan State University, the University of Texas at El Paso and the NASA Ames Research Center. HPTi will provide HPC operations and computational sciences support at multiple Army research sites including the Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen, MD and at the NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA.

    The program focuses on four key research areas: Lightweight combat systems survivability; computational nanotechnologies and bio-sciences; computational battlefield network and information sciences; and HPC enabling technologies and advanced algorithmic development.

    “We are excited about the impact that our unique and innovative team will have on the Army’s future mission,” said HPTi Group Vice President Scott F. Miller. “The AHPCRC program will further enhance our ability to provide solutions for the DoD’s most advanced weapons platforms and science programs.”

    The Army’s continuing investments in HPC have resulted in increased use of computer-based modeling and simulation by the Army scientific and engineering community. The establishment of the Center and the continuation of the AHPCRC Program embody the Army’s support of the broader national effort to maintain U.S. leadership in computing technology and its application to issues critical to U.S. national security.
