Lockheed to support Defense computing centers

Lockheed Martin Corp. will operate and maintain the high-performance computing centers at four Defense Department scientific research sites under a new $344 million contract.

The Next Generation Technical Services project is in support of DOD's High Performance Computing Modernization Program. At each of the DOD Major Shared Resource Centers, Lockheed Martin will provide systems administration; computer operations and management; systems integration applications and user support; and data visualization services. The sites are:
  • The Navy Oceanographic Office at Stennis Space Center, Miss.
  • Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Vicksburg, Miss.
  • Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.
  • Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.

The High Performance Computing Modernization Program serves the DOD research and development and simulation and test communities by providing supercomputer services, high-speed network communications and computational science expertise.

Following a two-month transition period, Lockheed Martin will begin operations June 1. The contract includes an $85 million base year and four one-year options. The General Services Administration awarded the contract.

Lockheed Martin's team includes High Performance Computing Technologies Inc., Reston, Va.; Quantum Recruiting, Dallas; and Victory Solutions, Huntsville, Ala.

Lockheed Martin, based in Bethesda, Md., ranks No. 1 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
