Expertise is provided in implementing legacy applications or in developing new software on large-scale distributed computing platforms such as cluster computers. The capability was demonstrated on legacy applications from engineering such as antenna modeling and trajectory design software, and from science such as atmospheric chemistry, radiative transfer, Tsunami, and gravity inversion models. New models and software have been developed in the areas of technology prioritization, evolutionary optimization, radiative transfer in protostellar disks, dusty gas dynamics in comets, thermoelectric materials and devices, nano-scale electronic devices, electron field emission devices, discrete event simulation, and multi-body astrodynamic systems. The capability has been applied for missions, instruments, and ground operations, such as JUNO, MIRO, MCS, VCAM, TPF, HAMSR, EDOP, INSAR, Spitzer, PO-DAAC, and DSN. Four mid-size clusters are maintained for in-house computing and to help the JPL computing community in science and engineering transfer and optimize applications on distributed computing platform. Novel approaches to implementing software on hybrid cluster architectures with multi-core and cell processor nodes have been developed and demonstrated.
