What is HPEC?

HPEC Systems have a proven track record to deliver supercomputing processing performance in rugged, compact deployable system architectures optimized for harsh military environments. These systems consist of a large number of distributed processors, I/O, and software stacks connected by a low latency system fabric.

With scalable architectures, dataflow modelling and configuration validation, Curtiss-Wright’s HPEC customers can source embedded supercomputing platforms that integrate Intel-based multi-processor boards with AVX, GPGPU co-processors, Xilinx FPGAs, SRIO and Ethernet switching with Open Standard software solutions (called OpenHPEC), including VxWorks, and Linux with OpenMPI and OFED software interfaces, using latest fielded thermal management systems like VITA 48.5 Air Flow Through Technology.

HPEC Modules
