Project 38

Project 38 is a set of vendor-agnostic architectural explorations involving DOD, the DOE Office of Science, and NNSA (these latter two organizations are referred to below as “DOE”). These explorations are expected to accomplish the following:

  • Near-term goal: Quantify the performance value and identify the potential costs of specific architectural concepts against a limited set of applications of interest to both the DOE and DOD.
  • Long-term goal: Develop an enduring capability for DOE and DOD to jointly explore architectural innovations and quantify their value.

About Berkeley Lab

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 16 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit
