The impact of this technology on NASA is high and very broad. The fact that, in the short time span of the Phase I project, five of the Top NASA HPC applications have submitted letters of intent to Accelogic to become Phase II participants, speaks vastly about the significance of this technology for NASA. One of these participants mentions in his letter of intent that this technology "can be considered critical in achieving the next generation of so-called exascale software applications." Another participant mentions that a rough audit of their codes in production runs suggests that speedup factors on the order of 2-4 would be reasonable to expect across the spectrum of their user's cases. Such speedups would represent new opportunities for the code users to explore new larger science problems, faster and at a lower cost. The impact of this compression technology spans most areas of importance to NASA's scientific mission, including aerospace, weather forecasting, combustion, climate research, and chemistry, among many others.
The landscape for non-NASA government and commercial applications is similar, with this compression technology having a potential strong impact on most fields for which HPC is crucial. This includes a vast array of Government and commercial fields such as: climate research, molecular dynamics, chemistry, defense, weather forecasting, energy, finance, economic forecasting, civil and environmental engineering, geophysics, life sciences, and semiconductors.
