Build-a-satellite program could fast track national security space missions

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Satellites equipped with remote sensing technology execute many critical national security missions, from detecting explosions to tracking sea ice, but until now it could take a team years to move from a concept to a deployable space system. Valhalla, a Python-based performance modeling framework developed at Sandia National Laboratories, uses high-performance computing […]

Neuromorphic computing widely applicable, Sandia researchers show

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — With the insertion of a little math, Sandia National Laboratories researchers have shown that neuromorphic computers, which synthetically replicate the brain’s logic, can solve more complex problems than those posed by artificial intelligence and may even earn a place in high-performance computing. The findings, detailed in a recent article in the journal […]

Sandia researcher receives IEEE Computer Society’s 2017 Sidney Fernbach Award

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Steve Plimpton, a computational scientist at Sandia National Laboratories’ Center for Computing Research, has received the IEEE Computer Society’s 2017 Sidney Fernbach Award for “high-performance computer simulation frameworks that have advanced research in materials science, chemistry, biology and other related areas.” The citation, while accurate in scope, hardly portrays the depth of […]

Exascale Computing Project awards $39.8 million for application development

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Improved computer climate models of the Earth’s clouds and more accurate simulations of the combustion engine are goals for two projects led by Sandia National Laboratories that were funded in the first round of activities from the Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP). Sandia also will conduct research with other laboratories […]

Computer researcher at Sandia wins IEEE early career award

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories researcher Kurt Ferreira has been selected for the 2015 IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing Award for Excellence for Early Career Researchers. The award recognizes up to three individuals who have made influential and potentially long-lasting contributions in the field of scalable computing within five years of receiving their […]

Sandia researcher Mark Taylor receives highest award from DOE Secretary

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories researcher Mark Taylor has received the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) 2014 Secretary’s Honor Award — the department’s highest non-monetary employee recognition — for his work as chief computational scientist for DOE’s Accelerated Climate Modeling for Energy (ACME) executive council team. The award recognizes the team’s work to unify […]

New project is the ACME of computer science to address climate change

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — High performance computing researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are working with the Department of Energy (DOE) and other national laboratories and institutions to develop and apply the most complete climate and Earth system model, to address the most challenging and demanding climate change issues. Accelerated Climate Modeling for Energy, or ACME, is […]
