High Performance Computing (HPC) enables the modeling and simulation (M&S) that scientists apply to the most critical, grand challenges of our time.
Air, ground, and navy vehicle systems with current capabilities (e.g., stealth) operate without opposition, and GPS and other C4I systems provide reliable and accurate positioning, navigation, and timing data without contention.
If you’ve never seen a Where’s Waldo picture, imagine a large drawing with hundreds of people and objects and the task to find just one character (Waldo) in that mess.
High Performance Computing (HPC) may not be a household term, but the computing power it unlocks is the reason I love my job.
Archimedes said, “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” I say, give me a computer with the right code, and I’ll do the same.
“Look before you leap.” Well, some adages make more sense as time passes...as life goes on and international climate assessment reports happen.
For accurate and reliable climate and weather models, you need to know what assumptions are made. So how do we let researchers determine how they arrived at their conclusions?
Imagine cars that can tell you when they are going to break down. HPC is enabling digital twins—an engineering concept that evolves iterative builds into a systematic exploration of the possible.
Tim Mattox, an Engility senior computational scientist, outlines the basics and benefits of designing and developing engineered materials using HPC resources.
HPC may seem inaccessible and the domain of a select few lab-coated researchers, but in reality HPC touches all aspects of our lives.
In Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a supercomputer takes several million years to determine the answer to the “Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything."
Engility’s Sean Ziegeler, a High Performance Computing (HPC) computational scientist at Stennis Space Center, shares a primer on HPC performance engineering.
In the specialized world of high performance computing (HPC), accessing experts or developing the next generation of HPC talent becomes a differentiating capability
Engility’s Shannon Rees, weather modeling research scientist, discusses HPC needs for the next generation of global weather prediction.
