Department of Defense
High Performance Computing Modernization Program


Purpose: The DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) invites proposals for Dedicated High Performance Computing Project Investments (DHPIs). These are defined as two to four-year mission critical projects requiring small-scale laboratory or test center on-site HPC systems – targeting unique requirements.

Eligibility: All computational scientists and engineers in DoD research, development, test and evaluation, and acquisition engineering programs who are eligible to use HPCMP resources under the program’s current guidelines may submit a proposal. Systems can only be hosted at DoD, FFRDC1, and UARC2 facilities (i.e. systems may not be hosted by or proposed for commercial organizations). Exceptions to the above site location restrictions of DHPIs require written concurrence from the HPCMP Director.
