In May 1992, the Secretary of Defense forwarded the DoD High Performance Computing HPC Modernization Plan to Congress. That plan, prepared by the Office of the Director of Defense Research and Engineering and published in March 1992, provided the rationale, process, timetable, and funding requirements for high performance computing modernization supporting DoD research, development, test, and evaluation. The purpose of this document is to update and revise the Modernization Plan to reflect the activities of the past two years, and to present FY94, FY95, and outyear plans. The DoD HPC modernization program is structured to modernize the total high performance computational capabilities of DoD research and development RD to a level comparable to that available in the foremost civilian and other Government agency RD environments. The program is multifaceted - creating robustly networked HPC environments at Major Shared Resource Centers, accommodating specialized HPC requirements at Distributed Centers, adapting and developing scalable applications software, and educating users as new architectures and concepts evolve. The program fosters meaningful interaction with the entire HPC community to facilitate sharing knowledge, tools, and expertise.
