Since 2014, DOD has awarded what are known as Frontier Projects to enable research, development, test and evaluation outcomes that could not be achieved using typically available DOD High Performance Computing Modernization Program resources.

Researchers from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, known as DEVCOM, Army Research Laboratory along with the Naval Air Warfare Center, submitted a winning proposal for a project to explore large-scale integrated simulations of gas turbine engines.

The researchers hope to create a digital twin of an actual gas turbine engine.

This will enable real-time engine health awareness and reduce lifecycle cost, Bravo said. “This award will provide the supercomputing resources to make possible our collaboration between our laboratory, NAVAIR, Pratt & Whitney, the University of Cincinnati and Cascade Tech on digital twin models in propulsion,” Bravo said. “We are partnering across government, industry and academia to address a grand challenge in propulsion and we are all very excited about receiving this announcement.”

The award is one of four projects the DOD selected in its Foundational Research and Engineering category and the only one across the Army. The other awardees in this group include the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Office of Naval Research.

DOD will allocate resources starting Oct. 1, 2021. While the project will get quarterly reviews, the effort is planned to cover up to four years of research.

The United States Department of Defense High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) was initiated in 1992 in response to Congressional direction to modernize the Department of Defense (DoD) laboratories’ high-performance computing capabilities. The HPCMP provides supercomputers, a national research network, and computational science experts that together enable the Defense laboratories and test centers to conduct research, development, test and technology evaluation activities.

The program comprises three primary elements: DoD Supercomputing Resource centers, which provide large scale supercomputers and operations staff; DREN, a nationwide high speed, low latency, R&D network connecting the centers and major user communities; and a collection of efforts in software applications to develop, modernize, and maintain software to address DoD's science and engineering challenges.
