We are a technology-led, innovation-focused program committed to extending HPC to address the DoD’s most significant challenges.


We have seen its impact: in research, where HPC enables DoD to explore new theories and evaluate them well beyond what is practical using experiment alone; in acquisition, through the use of validated applications in design and testing, which significantly reduce the time and cost of developing weapon systems, and improve the quality of their designs; and in operations, where real-time calculations produce just-in-time information for decision makers on the battlefield.

High performance computing amplifies the creativity, productivity, and impact of the DoD Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E)  community by giving them access to insight about the physical world, and human actions within it, that would otherwise be too costly, too dangerous, or too time-intensive to obtain through observation and experiment alone
