High-End Computing Program

Delivering high-end computing systems and services to NASA's aeronautics, exploration, science, and space technology missions.


If you are a NASA-sponsored scientist or engineer, computing time is available to you at the High-End Computing (HEC) Program's NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).

03.16.15 - Simulations Put a New Spin on Wind Tunnel Tests
High-fidelity rotorcraft simulations run on the Pleiades supercomputer are playing a new role in wind tunnel experiments.
New simulation of the heliosphere shows it to have two relatively short jets streaming away from the nose
03.03.15 – NASA-Funded Study Finds Two Solar Wind Jets in the Heliosphere
NASA-funded simulation research found that the giant bubble around our solar system, the heliosphere, is much shorter and smaller than previously thought, dominated by two jets shooting out the north and south poles of the sun. The simulation ran on the Pleiades supercomputer at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Facility.

02.12.15 - NASA Study Finds Carbon Emissions Could Dramatically Increase Risk of U.S. Megadroughts
Droughts in the U.S. Southwest and Central Plains during the last half of this century could be drier and longer than drought conditions seen in those regions in the last 1,000 years, according to a new NASA study. Analyzed climate projections include those from a model run at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation.
