SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — When scientists and engineers at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Indian Head, Maryland needed to ensure they could make reliable, qualitative predictions regarding the vulnerability and survivability of targets for U.S. Navy warheads, they turned to SGI for a solution.

To obtain accurate assessments of predicted target damage, the NSWC required a high performance server that would allow them to conduct large three dimensional computations for faster 3D analysis of explosive systems. The group found such a system in the SGI(R) Altix(R) 4700.
