Center Overview

The Center for Space, High-Performance, and Resilient Computing (SHREC) is dedicated to assisting U.S. industrial partners, government agencies, and research organizations in mission-critical computing, with research in:

  • Space computing for earth science, space science, and defense.
  • High-performance computing for a broad range of grand-challenge applications.
  • Resilient computing for dependability in harsh or critical environments.

With the complementary nature of expertise at each of its sites, SHREC addresses research challenges facing these three domains of mission-critical computing by exploiting existing and emerging computing technologies, including digital signal processors, field-programmable gate arrays, graphical processing units, hybrid processors, advanced memories, and high-speed interconnects.

Research Focus

High-performance computing
SHREC explores the application and productive use of heterogeneous computing technologies and architectures in support of high-speed, mission-critical computing.

Resilient computing
SHREC exploits its expertise in fault injection and mitigation as well as radiation testing to demonstrate unique reliability concepts and solutions, including adaptive hardware redundancy, fault masking, and software fault tolerance.

Space computing
SHREC develops, evaluates, and deploys novel forms of space architectures, apps, computers, networks, services, and systems, while leveraging commercial and radiation-hardened or tolerant technologies.
