CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 13, 2017--
Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL), announced today that the company will
bring its world-class high performance computing (HPC) capabilities to
bear as it competes to win NASA’s Advanced Computing Services contract.
“HPC is a strategic, enabling capability for NASA,” said Lynn
Dugle, CEO of Engility. “Engility’s cadre of renowned computational
scientists and HPC experts, coupled with our proven high performance
data analytics solutions, will help increase NASA’s science and
Engility subject matter experts are on the forefront of developing
systems and solutions that leverage integrated, multi-scaled scientific
and engineering models. Engility applies sophisticated visualization,
numerical algorithms and computational frameworks to complex scientific
and engineering problems. These can be executed on multi-peta scale
computing systems to develop HPC solutions, simulations and tools. These
solutions, simulations and tools enable warfighters, academics and
policymakers to better understand complex phenomena, reduce time to
action, enhance their productivity and move complex technologies from
the laboratory to the operational mission while saving and improving
Engility’s legacy of HPC success stretches back a quarter century. In
1993, the company reduced U.S. Air Force weather model time by 75
percent. Engility also delivered the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration’s (NOAA’s) first commodity-based 64-bit cluster in 2004.
In addition, the company established the advanced computing research
program in support of the Army’s HPC Research Center, partnering with
universities and government labs such as NASA Ames Research Center in
2007. Just last year, Engility won a $112 million Food and Drug
Administration HPC contract that improves scientific computing. For
instance, bioinformatics insights provide faster, better-informed
regulatory decisions and enhance collaboration among scientists and the
worldwide scientific community.
Engility’s HPC team:
Includes some of the best computational and supercomputing scientists
in the industry, enabling advanced HPC users to work across all
scientific and engineering domains. Engility scientists worked with
NOAA to enable the design and acquisition of their first large
research and development HPC systems.
Secures data. Engility delivers in-depth knowledge, support and
direction for all IT security-related activities at NOAA’s Geophysical
Fluid Dynamics Laboratory’s Research and Development HPC Program.
Helps customers strategize and prioritize investments in HPC. Engility
developed a tool that enabled NOAA to make strategic investments in
HPC technology and acquisition that resulted in an accelerated path to
next-generation weather and climate modeling.
