DARPA Selects IBM for Supercomputing Grand Challenge

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded IBM (NYSE: IBM) a four-year $244 million award to develop a machine that provides 100 times the sustained performance of today's general purpose supercomputers and is dramatically simpler to program, administer and use. IBM expects the project to support DARPA's goals of increasing productivity and enabling the United States to achieve long-term technological leadership while opening up the complex world of supercomputing to a broader audience of scientists and businesses.
