Ubiquitous High Performance Computing (UHPC)

The Ubiquitous High Performance Computing (UHPC) program seeks to develop the architectures and technologies that will provide the underpinnings, framework and approaches for the resolution of power consumption, cyber resiliency, and productivity problems. The UHPC program aims to develop computer systems, from embedded to cabinet level, which have extremely high energy efficiency and are dependable and easily programmable. These systems will have dramatically reduced power consumption while delivering a thousand-fold increase in processing capabilities. Dependability technologies developed under the UHPC program will provide adaptable and hardened cyber resilient computer systems. Productivity will be significantly improved by developing scalable, highly programmable computer systems that will not require significant system expertise for the development of high performance applications.

High Productivity Computing Systems (HPCS)

High Productivity Computing Systems (HPCS) is a focused research and development program that creates a new generation of high productivity computing systems, including software tools, architectures, and hardware components, that are economically viable for the national security and industrial user communities. HPCS systems will improve by orders of magnitude the effectiveness of humans and computers in solving problems in the high performance computing domain. HPCS systems will have the following four important attributes: (1) Performance: Improve the computational efficiency and reduce the execution time of critical national security applications. (2) Programmability: Reduce cost and time of developing HPCS applications. (3) Portability: Insulate HPCS application software from system specifics. (4) Robustness: Improve reliability and reduce vulnerability to intentional attacks.
