SDSC Team Wins $108 Million, 8-year DoD High-Performance Computing Contract
SDSC is part of a national team of academic institutions and industry partners that was awarded a $108 million contract to work side-by-side with Department of Defense (DoD) researchers in 11 technical areas with broad scientific and defense applications. Led by Mississippi State University, the Ohio Supercomputer Center, and SDSC, the consortium will begin work on June 1, 2001, with a three-year basic contract and up to five one-year extension options.
The Programming Environment and Training (PET) consortium will work with the DoD's High Performance Computing Modernization Program to provide research expertise, education and training, and technical support for computing resources. SDSC researchers will be leading efforts in education, outreach and training (EOT) and enabling technologies.
The contract is one of the largest in DoD history for academic research and builds on SDSC's involvement over the past five years with the PET program of the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO) Major Shared Resource Center. The new consortium will work with the Army Engineering Research and Development Center at Vicksburg, Mississippi, and the Air Force Aeronautical Systems Center in Dayton, Ohio, as well as NAVO.
