Air Force Research Laboratory funds Howard U. HPC/Grid Center’s proposal

(PRWEB) July 2, 2004

The Center for Applied High Performance Computing (CAHPC) located at Howard University in Washington D.C. announced today that the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has selected them for funding. The winning proposal, titled "A study of inverse methods for processing of radar data" will investigate applications of algorithms typically used for geophysical problems such as oil exploration to the reduction of “clutter” in radar imaging.

CAHPC Director Dr. Mohamed Chouikha said his team, was “looking forward to the exciting research challenge and to building a long term, mutually beneficial relationship with the Air Force Research Laboratory that produces useable computational solutions for the military while at the same time continually improving the education and research environment for the nation’s best minority students”. His multi-disciplinary team, which includes recognized experts in computational science, signal processing, software, security, and simulation, has a track record that suggests they will deliver on that desire. Previous work for the Army by members of their team has tackled computationally demanding challenges ranging from electro-magnetic signal processing to computer assisted cancer diagnosis.

The Center for Applied High Performance Computing began in 2003 as a collaborative effort between Howard University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and QuaTeams, Inc., a small Columbia, Maryland based business with IT capabilities and subject matter expertise. Researchers at the CAHPC focus on real world problems, primarily in areas of war fighting technology, homeland security, and bio-informatics. Engineers and students at the center are developing Grid technology that utilizes parallel supercomputing resources at Maui High Performance Computing Center (MHPCC) and the Army High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC) in addition to their local on-campus resources.
