To achieve ‘capable’ exascale requires a holistic approach that uses co-design and integration from Application Development, Software Technology, and Hardware Technology.

Application Development

Responsible for delivering science-based applications able to exploit exascale for high-confidence insights and answers to critical problems in national security, energy assurance, economic competitiveness, and health care.

Learn more about Application Development >

Software Technology

Concentrates on developing a comprehensive and coherent software stack that will enable application developers to productively write highly parallel applications that can portably target diverse exascale architectures.
