The goal of the Department of Defense Modernization Project (DODMP)
is to increase high performance computing capabilities within the DoD
labs through the introduction of modern parallel computing systems. The
project is spearheaded by four DoD major shared resource centers (MSRCs).
Rice participates in the program with three of the four MSRCs:
Army Research Lab (ARL), Aberdeen Maryland
Aeronautical Systems Center (ASC), Dayton, Ohio
Army Corps of Engineers Waterways Experiment Station (CEWES),
Rice's primary roles are to provide programming tools expertise for high-end
computational scientists and engineers by focusing on their computational
problems and to assist users in using new technologies to benefit their
applications on high performance computers.
