Huntsville Center programme procures mobile, containerized supercomputer for Defense Department


Huntsville Center's High Performance Computing Programme recently procured a new supercomputer system housed in a shipping container. The "HPC in a Container" is designed to be deployable.
30 Jul 2019 Huntsville - The U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, Facility Technology Integration, High Performance Computing (HPC) Programme recently procured a new supercomputer that will serve users from all of the services and agencies of the Department of Defense.

The $12 million contract provides for a supercomputing system housed in a shipping container with onboard power conditioning and cooling, along with the corresponding hardware and software maintenance services.

The "HPC in a Container" is designed to be deployable to the tactical edge and deployment opportunities to remote locations are currently being evaluated.

The new supercomputer will initially be based at the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Developmental Command Army Research Laboratory DOD Supercomputing Resource Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland.

Sally Parsons, Huntsville Center Information Technology Systems Division chief, said the system brings a significant capability to support militarily significant use-cases that were not possible with supercomputers installed in fixed facilities.

"This is a singularly important achievement for its end-users", Sally Parsons stated.

"Because of the sensitive nature of the work involved, we here at Huntsville Center will never know exactly the solutions this unique tool will provide in the field, but I am quite confident that our work will result in both lives saved and problems avoided."

The Center's HPC Programme supports the Department of Defense High Performance Computing Modernization Programme through the annual procurement of HPC systems. The programme utilizes a dedicated, multidiscipline product delivery team (PDT) approach to meet its stakeholder's requirements.

The PDT includes subject matter experts in the areas of project management, information assurance/cyber engineering, contracting, resource management, and legal counsel.

The system is expected to be delivered later in 2019, and to enter production service shortly thereafter.
