The MHPCC DSRC, established in 1993, is an Air Force research Laboratory (AFRL) Center managed by the University of Hawaii under contract to the Air Force Research Laboratory's Directed Energy Directorate at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico. The MHPCC DSRC operates as one of the six DoD Supercomputing Resource Centers in the DoD's High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP). The MHPCC DSRC allocates more than 70,000,000 computational hours annually to the HPCMP Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation community.
The MHPCC DSRC provides computational resources for the Department of Defense's scientific computational needs through their support of DoD "Challenge Projects" and other government users. The Center also supports the Directed Energy Directorate's Maui Space Surveillance System. Located atop 10,000-foot Mt. Haleakala, the Space Surveillance System is used for imaging and tracking of space objects.
The MHPCC DSRC's Terascale High Performance Computing resources showcase a wide range of technologies which include Riptide, a 756 compute node IBM iDataPlex system.
The MHPCC DSRC offers an innovative environment for High Performance Computing (HPC) applications. This includes:
