Who We Are
Welcome to the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) DoD Supercomputing Resource Center (DSRC). We are a high performance computing (HPC) facility committed to providing the resources necessary for Department of Defense (DoD) scientists and engineers to complete their research, development, testing and evaluation projects.
Since our inception in 1996 as part of the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP), we have supported the warfighter by combining powerful computational resources, secure interconnects, and application software with renowned services, expertise and experience.
What We Do
We deliver premier and innovative services to our user community:
Hardware - By providing access to a variety of supercomputing system architectures, our users stay up-to-date with technology improvements while saving critical budget dollars. With the addition of new supercomputers every 24 months, technology insertion investments keep pace with current trends and user requirements.
Software - We offer hundreds of commercial and open-source packages including pre- and post-analysis tools. Our software is professionally administered and continuously monitored to reflect changing demands and technology advancements.
Support - Our experienced staff includes experts in hardware, software, networking, mass storage and security, as well as Ph.D.s with expertise in a variety of computational technology areas.
We Are Dedicated to...
Establishing "world class" capabilities that apply high performance computation toward solving DoD problems.
