About the ERDC DSRC

Who We Are

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in Vicksburg, Mississippi, is the premier research and development laboratory complex for the Corps of Engineers. ERDC conducts critical research in the Tri-Service Reliance areas of Civil Engineering, Environmental Quality, and Environmental Sciences.

Originally established as an Army Supercomputer Center in 1989, ERDC became the first High Performance Computing (HPC) Major Shared Resource Center (MSRC) in 1993 as part of the DoD HPC Modernization Program (HPCMP). The name was changed to the ERDC DoD Supercomputing Resource Center (DSRC) in 2009.

Physically located in the Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) at ERDC, the ERDC DSRC is one of five DSRCs supported by the HPCMP. International access to the ERDC DSRC HPC systems is provided through the Defense Research and Engineering Network (DREN) and the Internet.

What We Do

The ERDC DSRC operates a variety of large HPC systems to serve the HPC needs of engineers and scientists throughout the DoD. It provides a complete HPC environment, including hardware, software, data storage, archiving, visualization, training, and expertise in the CFD, CSM, and EQM Computational Technology Areas as well as Education Outreach and Training Coordination (EOTC).
