NASA AMES ORDERS TWO CRAY RESEARCH SUPERCOMPUTERS FOR CENTRAL COMPUTING FACILITY

 EAGAN, Minn., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Cray Research, Inc. (NYSE: CYR) today announced that NASA's Ames Research Center, Mountain View, Calif., has ordered two Cray Research supercomputing systems.
 Under an agreement with the NASA Ames Division of Sterling Software Inc., a CRAY Y-MP 2E system has been installed at the Central Computing Facility of the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif. The agreement calls for a top-of-the-line CRAY Y-MP C90 system to be delivered to the same facility this year. Additional terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
 "This new system enables NASA Ames to maintain our commitment to provide our users with the most advanced, state-of-the-art supercomputer technology available," said Marcelline Smith, chief of the Computer Systems and Research Division of NASA Ames. "To be able to enhance the computational power for our research community in a constrained budget environment is extremely important to us."
 The new supercomputers are upgrades replacing earlier Cray Research systems. Nearly 1,000 NASA Ames researchers will use the new systems to solve larger aerospace research problems involving computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational chemistry.
 "The NASA Ames Research Center is one of our most valued long-term customers," said John A. Rollwagen, Cray Research chairman and chief executive officer. "We're proud that NASA Ames scientists continue to have access to Cray Research's leading-edge supercomputing systems." To date, he said, Cray Research has received 16 CRAY Y-MP C90 orders and has shipped nine of the systems.
 Cray Research creates the most powerful, highest-quality computational tools for solving the world's most challenging scientific and industrial problems.
