JUNE 29—The Defense Department last week chose contractors to upgrade software environments at several military research centers.

High Performance Technologies of Arlington, Va., received a $36 million contract to improve collaborative and distance-learning technologies used by the Aeronautical Systems Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and the Army Research Laboratory in Aberdeen, Md.

DOD's High Performance Computing Management Office also gave a $108 million contract to a consortium of Mississippi State University, the Ohio Supercomputing Center and the San Diego Supercomputing Center.

The consortium will improve high-end computational environments at the Aeronautical Systems Center, the Naval Oceanographic Office at John C. Stennis Space Center, and the Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Vicksburg, Miss.

Each of the contracts is for three base years with five optional years. The General Services Administration's Information Technology Acquisition Center, located in Atlanta and Fort Worth, Texas, negotiated the contracts.
