Department of Defense
High Performance Computing Modernization Program

We are a technology-led, innovation-focused program committed to extending HPC to address the DoD's most significant challenges. We have seen programmatic impact: in research, where HPC enables the 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 worls and human actions within it, that would otherwise bee too costly, too dangerous, ot too time-intensive to obtain through observation and experiment alone. The following are some of the recent CREATE programmatic success stories:
