  Objective of the Program  
Revival of computer branch of two countries, industrial production of some software-compatible models of supercomputers with a wide spectrum of productivity - up to billions operations per second. For achievement of this purpose in the context of the Program the complex approach is realized:

 Development of the Concept of creation of models of supercomputers "SKIF".

 Creation of pre-production models of base configurations of supercomputer systems "SKIF". Development of the documentation. Carrying out of complex preliminary and acceptance tests of pre-production models "SKIF".

 Creation of common information telecommunication space of the Program participants with an opportunity of the remote access to supercomputer resources.

 Creation of applied pilot complexes on the basis of supercomputers "SKIF".

 Personnel preparation and retraining for work with supercomputer technologies.

 The organization of industrial release of models of supercomputers "SKIF" in a wide range of productivity and system of their maintenance.

Complex realization of the Program will allow in rather short terms at small expenses to leave on own alternative, an independent way of development of competitive high-efficiency computer facilities that will meet requirements of a wide category of users.

systems and their application"

 The system of program actions includes 21 tasks that provide works on creation of base constructive modules, element base, the system software, finished applied systems, etc.

The offer on prolongation for one year of terms of realization of the program "SKIF" is authorized by the decision of Council of Ministers of the Belarussian-Russian Union state from 29.12.2003 № 29.
The Program is designed for the period - 2000-2004 years.

The major practical result of four years of performance of the Program - release of 12 samples claster configurations with peak productivity, starting from first two samples with peak productivity of 20 billion operations per second up to « SKIF K-500 » with peak productivity over 700 billion operations per second.
