Grant: Towards a Leadership-Class Computing Facility – Phase 1

May 12, 2017

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Serve as an evaluation platform for testing and demonstrating the feasibility of an upgrade to a leadership-class facility five years following deployment.

Anticipated Type of Award: Cooperative Agreement

Estimated Number of Awards: 1

Anticipated Funding Amount: $60,000,000
