ORGANIZATION

The High-End Computing (HEC) Program is managed by the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) and funded through the agency's Strategic Capabilities Assets Program (SCAP) and SMD. SCAP receives funding from all Mission Directorates to serve as an agency-wide resource. The program uses an integrated management approach for its two projects—the High-End Computing Capability (HECC) Project operated by the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility at Ames Research Center and the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) Project operated by the NCCS within the Computational and Information Sciences and Technology Office (CISTO) at Goddard Space Flight Center.

PROGRAM COMPONENTS & MANAGEMENT BIOGRAPHIES

HEC Program Office

Coordinate requirements and provide oversight; ensure effective and efficient stewardship of Program resources.

High-End Computing Capability (HECC) Project

Provide large-scale capability computing together with a full range of supporting services; work to advance the state of the art in HEC to ensure constant increase and improvement in the services the HEC Program can deliver to NASA users.

NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) Project

Provide capacity computing together with a full range of supporting services with special emphasis on support to data-intensive science programs; provide for storage, management, and stewardship of very large collections of data generated and used in Earth and space science computation.
