The HPEC Challenge benchmark suite consists of a set of eight kernel benchmarks and a scalable Synthetic Aperature Radar (SAR) system benchmark for quantitatively comparing HPEC systems. The kernel benchmarks address important operations across a broad range of DoD signal and image processing applications. The scalable SAR system benchmark is representative of one of the most common functions in DoD surveillance systems. In addition, it includes storage I/O components found in a broad class of applications.

Metrics of interest for the benchmarks are defined on the Metrics page.
