Armed with Supreme Court decision on Rafale, the Modi government is set to ink a deal with France-based European Information Technology corporation Atos on Saturday to procure supercomputers worth Rs 4,500 crore for academic and research institutions across India.

The contract would clear the way for the Atos to deploy its Bull Sequana supercomputers in India to build a network with a cumulative computing power of more than 10 petaflops. The high-performance computing facilities, which the Atos will deploy in India, will include the corporation's advanced BullSequana XH2000.

As part of the programme, a network of over 70 supercomputers will be installed in multiple national-level research and academic institutions. These machines will be part of the National Supercomputing grid over the National Knowledge Network (NKN), which will have wide-scale applications in the fields of climate modelling, weather prediction, aerospace engineering , computational biology, molecular dynamics, atomic energy simulations, national security and defence applications, seismic analysis, disaster prediction and management, computational chemistry, big data analytics, finance and more. By March next year, the first three supercomputers under NSM will be operational at Banaras Hindu University (IIT), Indian Institute of Science, Education and Research (IISER),Pune and IIT-Kharagpur
