ABSTRACT
The article reports on how a powerful supercomputer from SGI will help the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) engineers and scientists develop the next breakthrough in warfare. The new SGI supercomputer is deployed at the Aeronautical Systems Center Major Shared Resource Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The SGI resource will assist DoD researchers to devise weapons systems faster, decrease risk by enriching the quality of modeling and simulation, and support an effort to create game-changing computational science and engineering applications.
