Cray Wins Three New Computer Contracts

Cray announced that it had been awarded a contract to provide three new computers to parts of the U.S. Defense Department. The value of the award will be $45 million. The computers will be provided to the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), U.S. Army and the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center.

Cray had been struggling recently with the decision by the Defense Advanced Research Products Agency (DARPA) to cancel a contract with Cray to provide computers and support. That program was scaled back and its loss cost Cray about $60 million in revenue. That decision seriously impacted future projections but much of that will be made up for with this contract.
