High Performance Computing Modernization Program

Q: What is the HPCMP?


A: HPCMP is the acronym for the High Performance Computing Modernization Program. The HPCMP was launched in 1992 in response to congressional direction to modernize the Department of Defense (DoD) laboratories' high performance computing (HPC) capabilities. The HPCMP was assembled out of a collection of small high performance computing departments, each with a significant history of supercomputing experience, that had independently matriculated within the Army, Air Force, and Navy laboratories and test centers. HPC operations solve complex and time-consuming problems.

Q: Who uses the HPCMP?


A: The High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) serves the Department of Defense (DoD) and its respective Services and Agencies. The HPCMP promotes a symbiotic relationship among engineers, scientists, and students to enhance current and future generations in Science and Technology (S&T). Service and Agency researchers in the Research Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) utilize HPCMP resources to expand their capabilities to solve modern military and security problems.

Q: What are the HPCMP’s priorities?


A:Visit the Five Execution Priorities page for a list and description of the High Performance Computing Modernization Program's (HPCMP’s) priorities.

Q: What oversight does the HPCMP have?


A: The Governance and Advisory Groups page provides information on the Program's oversight groups.

Q: How does the HPCMP do business?


A: The HPCMP supports scientists and engineers from the research development test & evaluation (RDT&E) communities to solve complex defense challenges in support of the Warfighter. To achieve its goals, the HPCMP is organized into seven Program Areas: HPC Centers, Networking, Software Applications, CREATE, Security, Resource Management, and Workforce Development .
