The Advanced Computing Systems effort made provision for a wide range of research activities that could be conducted under the overall contract. The major tasks undertaken during the contract period included ACS Acquisition The overall objective of this effort was to perform research and acquire advanced prototype computing systems m support of the Presidents initiative in high performance computing HPCC. ACS Performance Evaluation The main objective of this effort was the use of a new methodology to evaluate the performance of parallel computers by generalizing techniques used for uniprocessor performance benchmarks. ResNets The primary objectives in this task included integration of maturing technologies into DoD testbeds and advanced facilities and the design, implementation and support of DARPAs wide area research nodes. NetTech The primary objective of this task was the integration of technologies developed in the DARPA Communicator and Spoken Language Systems programs into advanced environments and testbeds. Each of these tasks was successfully completed and over the lifetime of this effort a number of high performance and advanced computing systems were implemented, studied and transitioned.
