Air Force needs quick price quote on multiprocessor Linux computational cluster

Linux

Computer companies have just six days to offer price quotes to the U.S. Air Force for a multiprocessor computational cluster for running serial and parallel jobs.

Asking for quotes are officials of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory's Air Vehicles Directorate Structures Division (AFRL/VASD) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. Quotes are due no later than Jan. 10. The request for quote number is FA8604-07-Q-7478.
