NASA AMES' NUMERICAL AERODYNAMIC SIMULATION CENTER TO RECEIVE CRAY'S LARGEST, MOST POWERFUL SUPERCOMPUTER

 EAGAN, Minn., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- NASA Ames Research Center, Mountain View, Calif., has ordered a second CRAY Y-MP C90 supercomputer, Cray Research (NYSE: CYR) announced today. The top-of-the line system, with 16 processors and one billion words of memory, will be dedicated to NASA Ames' Numerical Aerodynamic Simulation (NAS) Systems Division.
 In Sept. 1992, NASA announced its selection of Cray Research to provide this high-performance system and related computer equipment; the formal order
was received in fourth quarter, 1992. The new CRAY Y-MP


C90 system will be delivered to NASA Ames' NAS Facility, Moffett Field, Calif., this quarter. Additional terms of the contract were not disclosed.
 The new system replaces a CRAY-2 system acquired by NASA Ames in 1988. The C90 system will support the NAS user community comprised of hundreds of federal, private industry, and university scientists throughout the United States.
 Last week Cray Research announced a separate order for a CRAY Y-MP C90 system to be installed at the same Moffett Field facility and dedicated to NASA Ames Research Center users. That order was received under an agreement with the NASA Ames Division of Sterling Software Inc.
 Cray Research creates the most powerful, highest-quality computational tools for solving the world's most challenging scientific and industrial problems.
