Compendium Contributes To High Performance Computing Conference
June 19, 2001
Compendium Technologies' contributions to the Electromagnetic
Environmental Effects (E3) toolkit were highlighted in a paper presented today
at the Department of Defense (DoD) High Performance Computing (HPC)
Users Group Conference
(UGC) in Biloxi, MS. Compendium wrote portions of the paper and the
assisting SPAWAR Systems Center
(SSC-SD) and the Applied Research Laboratory
at Pennsylvania State University (ARL PSU) in presenting the paper.
SSC-SD was the lead author.
Development of the distributed pieces of the E3 Toolkit are underway at
Compendium's Mission Valley office in San Diego. Compendium is responsible for
electromagnetic volume task distribution and optimized scheduling across many
HPC nodes, as well as collecting volume inputs and visualizing results.
The resulting software will scale over hundreds or even thousands of
computing nodes on HPC platforms such as the IBM SP3, SGI Origin, and
Beowulf clusters. The languages and technologies used include Java, C++,
Fortran, and CORBA. The E3 Toolkit will eventually provide the warfighter
with advanced, high fidelity, near real time radio frequency (RF) battle
space modeling and simulation tools. Compendium is also building software
decision aid tools which will take operator inputs, visualize and manage
the RF battlespace.
The UGC paper and presentation and the E3 Toolkit are the latest in a
series of collaborations between Compendium, SSC-SD and ARL PSU. Other
software development efforts include
Information Warfare Tactical Decision Aids based
on RF propagation models.
