The NSF has called for proposals to develop the next generation of HPC, called the Phase 1 system, with the option of a possible future upgrade to a leadership-class computing facility. This will:
- Serve as a robust, well-balanced, and forward-looking computational asset for a broad range of research topics for which advances in fundamental understanding require the most extreme computational and data analysis capabilities.
- Serve as an evaluation platform for testing and demonstrating the feasibility of an upgrade to a leadership-class facility five years following deployment.
