About the Navy DSRC

Who We Are

The Navy DoD Supercomputing Resource Center (Navy DSRC) is a premier provider of high performance computing services and support to the United States Department of Defense scientists and engineers. It is one of five supercomputing centers established under the auspices of the Department of Defense (DoD) High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP).

What We Do

The Navy DSRC supports the DoD HPCMP by maintaining and providing a HPC capability with primary emphases on support of the largest, most computationally intensive HPC applications. Our center leads the way for numerous HPCMP-wide initiatives and provides our users with in-depth computational expertise and support.

The Navy DSRC also provides, on a daily basis, computational support for the creation of global, regional, and very high resolution coastal ocean circulation and wave model oceanography products supporting worldwide Navy and DoD operations. By making state-of-the-art HPC systems including large-scale supercomputing systems, high-speed networks, and petascale data storage accessible to thousands of DoD scientists and engineers, the Navy DSRC is focused on promoting the technological supremacy of the warfighter.

Expertise and Partnerships

Our staff brings to the DoD expertise in high performance computing systems configuration and administration, high-speed networking, data archival systems, and HPC user support. Our in-house knowledge is further supplemented by the Productivity Enhancement and Training (PET) on-site staff with expertise in the areas of Advanced Computational Environment and Climate Weather Ocean Modeling and Simulation. The center also provides leadership for HPCMP-wide functions including remote petascale data storage, enterprise systems monitoring, and remote system and database administration.
