BAE Systems Advanced Technology Centre adopts Allinea MAP
BAE Systems Advanced Technology Centre (ATC) has further embraced Allinea Software’s tools for their software teams developing applications for the company’s High Performance Computing clusters by adopting Allinea MAP, the scalable performance profiler, to help them speed up their applications.
The ATC at BAE Systems already uses the powerful debugger, Allinea DDT, to reduce the time to debug codes, which makes the ATC team more efficient and able to focus on its development tasks.
High Performance Computing is vitally important to ATC, whose cutting-edge software helps it to produce competitive products for today and the future. They are responsible for identifying and developing technology for BAE Systems, with the development team aiming at coding for larger clusters and GPGPU (general purpose graphics processing unit) platforms.
Allinea MAP makes performance problems in parallel applications clear and shows where software should be optimized. It shares the same easy-to-use interface and look and feel as Allinea DDT, so the developers are familiar with the tool immediately.
"We have access to the whole suite of Allinea tools to help us to achieve our mission and can rely on them when we need them most. Whether for modelling and simulation of computational fluid dynamics, electromagnetics or the other complex algorithms used in development of the company's maritime and air platforms, the coding is supported by Allinea Software's debugging and profiling products” says Pierre Moinier, Group Leader for Integrated Modelling Technologies at BAE Systems Advanced Technology Centre.
David Lecomber, CEO of Allinea Software says: "BAE Systems ATC stretches the reach of modelling, simulation and image processing software to provide the company with the confidence to innovate in its key products. Achieving performance and accuracy at ever increasing detail and scale is a complex software development challenge, but one that Allinea Software’s tools are designed for – and we are excited to be helping them succeed.”
