Abstract : This year, the High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) made great strides in improving critical defense capabilities through some of the world's most powerful supercomputers. In 2008, the Program supported leading edge technology located at four Major Shared Resource Centers (MSRCs) and four Allocated Distributed Centers (ADCs). The Defense Research and Engineering Network (DREN) emerged as an important contributor to combat power and protection with the effective implementation of IPv6. A funded program in 2008, Computational Research and Engineering Acquisition Tools and Environments (CREATE) began a long-term effort to enhance the productivity of the Department of Defense (DoD) acquisition engineering workforce by deploying air vehicle, ship, and antenna design tools. Here, at the Program, we are excited that the HPCMP continues to excel, providing the supercomputer technology and know-how the DoD scientists and engineers use every day to preserve our nation's resources and develop new technologies to keep America strong.
