Cray was the big winner, notching a pair of contract modifications — each worth $21.8 million — paying the supercomputer-builder for high performance computing systems needed to conduct complex, large-scale scientific calculations. The first of these two contracts relates to computer work that Cray will be doing for the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory DoD Supercomputing Resource Center at Wright-Patterson, Air Force Base in Ohio.
