Defense Department High-Performance Computing Centers Extend Their Contract with Altair for a Third Year — Press Release

Defense Department High-Performance Computing Centers Extend Their Contract with Altair for a Third Year

Altair’s PBS Professional software plays key role in military’s modernization program, providing a single job-management system for R&D and testing centers

Troy, Mich., USA, June 15, 2009—Altair Engineering, a global provider of technology and services empowering client innovation and decision-making, today announced that the U.S. Department of Defense has exercised its option to continue using Altair’s PBS Professional software as the standard workload management solution for its High-Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP).

The Altair software currently schedules runs on the department’s centers for scientific research and development and for testing and evaluation. These high-performance computing centers include facilities at the Aberdeen (Md.) Proving Ground; Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio; and the Navy DoD Supercomputing Resource Center on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, as well as sites in Vicksburg , Miss.; Fairbanks, and Alaska. In all, the systems at these facilities furnish a total 1.3 petaFLOPS of computational power (1.3 thousand trillion floating point operations per second).

In 2006, Altair earned a two-year contract to provide PBS Professional for these centers, with a series of eight one-year renewal options. The HPCMP now has exercised the Year Three option, based on the performance of the software and the flexibility of Altair Engineering in adapting to the needs of the organization’s constantly changing environment.

“We focus on making the most secure, reliable, and scalable software in the industry,” said Dr. Bill Nitzberg, PBS GridWorks Chief Technical Officer at Altair, “and we’re very pleased that the Department of Defense continues to trust PBS Professional to manage some of the most sophisticated machines in the world.”

Initiated in 1992, the HPCMP’s mission is to deliver world-class commercial, high-end, high-performance computational capability to the Defense Department’s 4,000+ person science, technology, testing and evaluation communities.

A single job-management system

“The foundation of our contract with Altair was the desire to have a single job-management system for our entire user community,” said DoD HPCMP Centers Manager Brad Comes. “Our community uses about 20 different HPC systems. Some users employ eight systems and others just two or three. We wanted to have a common management system independent of the system they ran on, so our contract required software to run on all our systems as they scale, mature and change technologically.”

HPCMP buys three or four large high-performance computing systems every year to upgrade its capabilities, and the latest version of PBS Professional is installed on the new computer systems as they are deployed. HPCMP Centers Senior Analyst Bill Fabian said the centers have received a good endorsement of PBS Professional from system vendors, who appreciate Altair’s adapting its product line to integrate with their hardware.

“Altair has been able to adapt as the environment changes,” noted Fabian. “Altair’s capability to put changes in place has enabled a more rapid transition toward a single baseline. We’re happy with Altair’s flexibility, adaptability and responsiveness through changes in functionality of its software and integration with our capabilities.”

The role of PBS Professional is to optimize the amount of development data and testing that can be carried out on available resources within a given timeframe. “Our users have to make many runs of these programs with different criteria and assumptions,” Fabian explained, “and that’s a lot of computing. PBS commands are embedded within user-defined scripts, improving our overall productivity. Personnel no longer have to maintain scripts supporting multiple computing systems; they just need to support one layer for the queuing system. This capability has reduced our software sustainment costs because we only need to sustain a single job scheduling and queuing system.”

Supporting next-generation technologies

The military’s research and development scientists use high-performance computing, supported by PBS Professional, for a variety of advanced projects, such as developing materials for the next generation of aircraft, designing propulsion systems, developing more effective nozzles for diesel fuel-injection engines, and producing armor for vehicles in the field. They also take on projects with a very large scope, such as creating next-generation capabilities for predicting climate, weather and ocean patterns.

Testing and evaluation experts use the HPC systems to run virtual tests before conducting actual testing of missiles and aircraft. “Instead of conducting ten tests, the testing community can do computational work up front to reduce the scenarios required for actual testing to perhaps two,” said Comes, just as automotive designers use HPC simulations to reduce the number of actual crash tests they need to perform with vehicles.

“Our full intent,” Comes affirmed, “is to provide stability for our user community for 10 years with this common management system.”

Altair, TARDEC Emphasize Need for Increased Modeling and Simulation in the Development of Military Ground Vehicles — Press Release

Altair, TARDEC Emphasize Need for Increased Modeling and Simulation in the Development of Military Ground Vehicles

AIM FIRE Military Day event draws key engineering leaders to discuss modeling and simulation tools and their impact on the evolving military vehicle development process

altair-twoTROY, Mich. – May 15, 2009 – The role of modeling and simulation in tomorrow’s defense engineering industry was a focal point for some of the top experts in military and software engineering at the Advanced Innovative Methods for Improved Reliability & Efficiency (AIM FIRE) Military Day, a program co-hosted by leading global technology provider Altair Engineering, Inc. (www.altair.com) and the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC).

More than 170 military personnel, military engineering professionals, and prime/sub contractors, as well as a member of U.S. Senator Carl Levin’s staff, participated in the May 14 event at Altair Engineering’s World Headquarters in Troy, Mich.

Altair has provided simulation software and consulting to TARDEC and its customers for more than 10 years, and AIM FIRE Military Day was designed to extend that relationship to the most current and urgent needs of America’s military forces.

Dr. David Gorsich, TARDEC’s chief scientist, delivered the keynote, “Reliability and Efficient Military Ground Systems,” which focused on the simulations being used to drive vehicle systems development and the need for more simulation in the testing of these crucial systems.

“Efficiency and reliability are key to improving the robustness of the U.S. military’s fleet of ground-wheeled vehicles,” Dr. Gorsich said. “We must leverage simulation methodologies in the design of combat vehicle systems to achieve the Army’s goals of technologies superiority and readiness.”

The AIM FIRE Military Day event served as an important showcase of new and highly balanced design approaches for military ground vehicles, including Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) All-Terrain Vehicles – also known as M-ATV vehicles – which are meant to increase force protection, fuel-efficiency, survivability rates associated with attacks from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and more. A key change in the way these vehicles are being designed is the use of advanced computer simulation methods that help ensure improved reliability and efficiency of the vehicles and their armor and reduced total life cycle costs.

Computer-based programs, employing Altair software, can simulate IED blasts and their potential impact on vehicles of various designs. Data gathered from these simulations may lead to the production of vehicles that weigh less without sacrificing structural reliability and therefore can be equipped with more protection without increasing total weight. Lighter vehicles are operationally more efficient, thereby allowing longer periods between refueling and overall energy and fuel savings. These simulations ultimately create lifecycle cost savings that result from “up front” vehicle optimization design.

“Simulation techniques have immensely improved the efficiency with which we design safer cars and trucks, and similar design tools are making ground-wheeled military vehicles more effective in protecting our troops,” said Jason Napolitano, regional managing director for Altair Engineering, Inc.

Currently, six contractors provide MRAP vehicles, but no single vehicle solves all the potential issues that fighting and peacekeeping forces confront. Altair is working with TARDEC to recommend ways to use computer simulation to standardize a design that meets all of the military’s needs, which results in a more efficient use of defense dollars as well as supports Michigan’s high-tech/defense industry.

The AIM FIRE event covered a wide range of technical issues, from designing a hull that better protects occupants to using simulated field situations for designing and testing vehicles. In addition to Altair and TARDEC, representatives from BAE Systems, Force Protection, Inc., General Dynamics Land Systems and Realtime Technologies, Inc., delivered presentations. The modeling and simulation technologies and strategies discussed at the conference are drawing increased attention from the defense industry, and the AIM FIRE event is expected to set the stage for future industry discussions on using simulation to speed improved vehicle design.
