  • ASC serves the Science-Based Stockpile Stewardship Program (SBSS) in the following ways: Directed Stockpile Work (DSW) involves evaluation, maintenance, and life extension of the current stockpile. The ultimate output of DSW comes through the annual certification process, which certified that each...
  • The first computers to contribute to the nation’s nuclear security work used thousands of vacuum tubes—which resembled fat light bulbs that gave off lots of heat—and consumed 125 kW of power to perform around 1,900 operations per second. This month NNSA’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (...
  • The National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA’s) Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory today announced the awarding of a subcontract to Penguin Computing – a leading developer of high-performance Linux cluster computing systems based in Silicon Valley – to bolster computing for stockpile...
  • Deploying some of the world’s fastest supercomputers is among ASC’s accomplishments in advanced computing. However, it is not all about speed. Each new system is engineered to bring certain capabilities to bear on the problems of modeling and simulation that will enhance the overall...
  • Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory broke ground today on a modular and sustainable supercomputing facility that will provide a flexible infrastructure able to accommodate the Laboratory’s growing demand for high performance computing (HPC).The $9.7 million building, located on the Laboratory’s...
  • WASHIGTON, DC. – The National Nuclear Security Administration today released its current quarterly summary of experiments conducted as part of its science-based Stockpile Stewardship Program. The experiments carried out within the program are used in combination with complex computational models...
  • The Advanced Technology Development and Mitigation (ATDM) subprogram includes laboratory code and computer engineering and science projects that pursue long-term simulation and computing goals relevant to the broad national security missions of the NNSA. It addresses the need to adapt current...
  • Catalyst, a first-of-a-kind supercomputer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, is available to industry collaborators to test big data technologies, architectures and applications. Developed by a partnership of Cray, Intel and Lawrence Livermore, this Cray CS300 high...
  • This sub-program provides both necessary physical facility and operational support for reliable, cross-lab production computing and storage environments as well as a suite of user services for effective use of ASC tri-lab computing resources. The scope of the facility operations includes planning,...
  • The mission of this national sub-program is to build integrated, balanced, and scalable computational capabilities to meet the predictive simulation requirements of NNSA. This sub-program strives to provide users of ASC computing resources a stable and seamless computing environment for all ASC-...
