SGI Supercomputer launched by UK Atomic Weapons Establishment

SGI (NASDAQ: SGI) said that the UK Atomic Weapons Establishment has concluded a complete acceptance of three SGI ICE X systems.

AWE manufactures and maintains warheads for the UK´s nuclear deterrent, Trident. This encompasses the entire life cycle of nuclear warheads, from initial concept, assessment and design through component manufacture and assembly, in-service support, decommissioning and then disposal.

The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty prohibits any test that produces any nuclear yield underground, underwater, in the atmosphere or in space. AWE must therefore continually develop methods to verify the safety and reliability of nuclear warheads through a science-based program.

SGI is focused on helping customers solve their most demanding business and technology challenges by delivering technical computing, Big Data analytics, cloud computing, and Petascale storage solutions that accelerate time to discovery, innovation, and profitability.
