Announcement of Request for DoD HPC Modernization Program HPC Equipment Reutilization Proposals

As a result of on-going modernization of high-performance computing (HPC) resources, the DoD HPCMP, (, has three HPC systems planned for decommissioning (see Section III for availability details). The systems are available for relocation to a site/organization that can continue to leverage the resources to the benefit of the DoD and/or the nation. Read More>>

Successful Cross Country Test Flight for Maritime Patrol UAV (Triton)

Triton was flown cross-country (for the first time) from Palmdale, CA to Patuxent River, MD on 18 Sept 2014 in order to test the platform’s ability (1) to remotely receive and execute long-distance flight plans, and (2) to communicate with a simulated operational battlefield network during flight. Read More>>

Increased Propeller Performance through Tip Loading

Propeller designers at the Carderock Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWCCD) are increasingly relying on simulations to predict the performance of propellers, and to evaluate novel design features for efficiency and military utility. Read More>>

Increased Helicopter Hover Thrust Performance

Army AMRDEC/AED and Boeing used HPCMP CREATETM-AV Helios software and three million CPU-hours on DSRC supercomputing hardware to confirm Boeing’s predictions of improved and isolated rotor performance and then, for the first time, verified computationally the integrated rotor/rotor and rotor/fuselage interactional aerodynamics and installed performance of the new rotors. Read More>>
