Lockheed-Martin's Special Multilevel and Overlapping Tier Support for the DoD HPC Centers

SESSION: Wednesday HPC Impact Showcase Presentations

EVENT TYPE: HPC Impact Showcase & Emerging Technologies

TIME: 1:00PM - 1:40PM

SESSION CHAIR: David Halstead

Speaker(s):James C. Ianni, Ralph McEldowney

ROOM:Show Floor - 233 Theater


This presentation will discuss the benefit to the U.S. Warfighter provided by Lockheed Martin's multiple levels of HPC resource support for the various Department of Defense (DoD) Supercomputing Resource Centers (DSRCs). The DoD HPC Modernization Program supports the HPC needs of the DoD Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation community through several of the DCRCs: the Army Research Laboratory DSRC, the Navy DSRC, the Air Force Research Laboratory DSRC, and the Engineer Research and Development Center DSRC. Each of these centers has several state-of-the-art supercomputers upon which DoD scientists and engineers run high-fidelity simulations in fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, computational chemistry and biology, weather prediction, electromagnetics and other related disciplines. These simulations ultimately provide a great benefit to the U.S. Warfighter. Consequently, this involves a synergistic relationship between account creation, software utilization (commercial, open-source and custom) and optimization (compiler, code and/or theory utilization), hardware utilization and maintenance and user interaction. These synergies are enabled by cultivating a means of communication between the several tier groups within and across the individual Centers. This synergy is very important for HPC user interaction, as user requests can (and often do) span many levels of experience. These levels include getting an account and connecting to an HPC resource, compiling/submitting/script writing, and determining how to calculate spectra for an excited state, high-spin, charged, f-element in various solvents. This presentation will describe the experiences of incorporating and actively utilizing all of the above-mentioned HPC support, as well as the ultimate impact HPC has had on the DoD.
