The Department of Defense DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program HPCMP was initiated in 1992 by a Congressional directive to modernize the DoD laboratories high performance computing HPC capabilities. The HPCMP operates under the auspices of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Science and Technology. Since its inception, the program has realized great success in its efforts to modernize the Department s laboratories and test centers to levels on par with other world-class organizations. This technical report, HPCMP Contributions to DoD Mission Success 2002, will provide insights into how the program has evolved and chronicle some of the near term and long term national defense work done by the science and technology ST and test and evaluation TE communities using HPCMP resources. The High Performance Computing Modernization Program is placing critical enabling 21st century technology into the hands of the Department s science, technology, test, and evaluation communities that allows them to realize the Department s transformational goals. This report is organized into four sections. The first section provides an overview of the program and its accomplishments as well as an explanation of how the stories are grouped. The second section consists of a selection of stories detailing the scientific research and engineering work done by the scientists and engineers in the Department s laboratories and test centers, working with academia and industry in seamless high performance computing environments. The third section provides a detailed discussion of the structure of the HPCMP and the fourth section is a list of acronyms used throughout the publication.
