Advanced Simulation and Computing Program

L'Advanced Simulation and Computing Program (appelé précédemment Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative ou ASCI) est un programme du gouvernement des États-Unis, dans le cadre des opérations de maintien de l'arsenal nucléaire américain, après le moratoire de 1992 sur les essais nucléaires.

Son rôle est d'assurer la simulation informatique des essais nucléaires. Pour cela, il utilise un important parc de superordinateurs, dont certains sont dans le TOP500.
