MILPITAS, Calif., 2016-11-01 00:46 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, SGI (NASDAQ:SGI), a global leader in high-performance solutions for compute, data analytics, and data management, announced that the United States Department of Defense (DoD) has selected SGI® ICE™ XA for two of its Army Research Laboratory Defense Supercomputing Resource Center (ARL DSRC) systems. The upgrades are part of a technology insertion, known as TI-16, for their High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP).

HPCMP delivers world-class commercial, high-end, high-performance computational capabilities to DoD’s Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) community through its five DoD Supercomputing Resource Centers (DSRCs).

With HPC technology, DoD scientists and engineers can utilize physics-based simulations to achieve better understanding of a variety of phenomena affecting national defense. The upgraded systems also allow quick data searches that are generated from field tests across a wide spectrum of military operations. Powerful supercomputers help with data quality, increasing situational awareness, and advancing soldier performance with live and virtual data analytics. The new SGI systems will be leveraged to scale algorithms, increase real-time experimental data processing and methods for live-virtual simulations.

The agreement for ARL DSRC system #1 values at $8.9 million, and ARL DSRC system #2 at $17.6 million.

SGI was also awarded four annual maintenance options over the next four years, allowing DoD to leverage its world-class professional services available 24/7. The work for both systems will be performed at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, with an estimated completion date of April 24, 2021. Army Corps of Engineers, Huntsville, Alabama, has been delegated contracting authority for these agreements.
