Abstract:

Members of this project have studied the academic and industrial uses of High Performance Computing HPC and have conducted site visits at a number of Army RD HPC user and provider sites, including the Medical Research and Materiel Command MRMC, Edgewood Chemical Biological Center ECBC, the Army Research Labs Major Shared Resource Center MSRC, the Developmental Test Command DTC, Research, Development, and Engineering Commands RDECOMs Communications- Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering RDE Center CERDEC, Scalable Network Technologies, Inc., and the Director for Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance C4ISR for Future Combat Systems FCS at Boeing, Huntington Beach, California. Because of the breadth of possible uses of HPC in Army RD, our client asked us to concentrate on two HPC application areas biotechnology and biomedicine, and modeling and simulation of the complex battlefield wireless network communication systems. We did so, and concluded that these areas are of great importance and merit focused funding and attention.
