Abstract : The High Performance Computing Modernization Program enables scientists and engineers to further the Department's objectives through research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) activities that support science and technology (S&T), and test and evaluation (T&E). These endeavors focus on the most complex, and highest priority defense challenges. This annual report highlights a small portion of the work being done to support the Department's Transformation Goals. The HPCMP achieves the Program's mission and vision by focusing on five specific goals. Each activity within the program supports one or more of these goals, with progress tracked and successes delineated. These five goals are: 1) acquire, deploy, operate and maintain best-value supercomputers; 2) acquire, develop, deploy and support software applications and computational work environments that enable critical DoD research, development and test challenges to be analyzed and solved; 3) acquire, deploy, operate and maintain a communications network that enables effective access to supercomputers and to distributed S&T/T&E computing environments; 4) promote collaborative relationships among the DoD computational science community the national computational science community and minority serving institutions; and 5) continuously educate the research, development, test and evaluation workforce with the knowledge needed to employ computational modeling effectively and efficiently.
