Department of Defense
High Performance Computing Modernization Program

The High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) supports Department of Defense (DoD) Research Development Test & Evaluation (RDT&E) and Acquisition Engineering (AE) objectives to solve complex defense challenges. To achieve its goals, the HPCMP is organized into seven Program Areas:

These seven Program Areas provide a complete computational environment that includes supercomputing system architecture and deployment expertise, a nation-wide high-performance data network supporting the DoD RDT&E  and AE communities, and the computational expertise to support DoD scientists and engineers in the development of supercomputing algorithms and applications that solve the problems facing DoD research, acquisition, and operations.

The Computational Research and Engineering Acquisition Tools and Environments (CREATE) program is designed to improve the Department of Defense (DoD) acquisition process by developing and deploying five sets of advanced computational engineering design tools for acquisition programs.

The HPCMP applies security intelligently to ensure proactive protection while promoting a productive environment for the Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) and Acquisition Engineering (AE) communities; distribution of computational resources across the DoD RDT&E and AE communities based upon documented requirements and Service priorities, and develops a DoD workforce that is prepared to take full advantage of high-performance computing (HPC) technologies.
