Annex E. International Armaments Strategy
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


3. Algorithms for Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) [NATO Groups]

Description: A key to advanced simulation and modeling is the implementation of advanced algorithms, specifically for MPP. Currently only a few countries possess the supporting infrastructure necessary for major research and development in this area. World leaders include the United States, Japan, Germany, and to a lesser extent the United Kingdom and France.

Justification: MPP is an important aspect of the Army's electronic battlefield (EBF) concept, and will contribute significantly to simulation and modeling and virtual reality applications. [This opportunity is closely related to another opportunity (Techniques for MPP and Neural Network Programming).]

Implementation: There is an active DEA that has the potential to contribute to ASTMP goals. Other existing mechanisms exist which also have potential for contribution.
