FPE -- Future Programs and Experiments Quadrant
The mission of the Future Programs and Experiments (FPE) quadrant is to play a full part in the mission of the division and the mission of the laboratory. In particular the FPE quadrant engages directly in and provides computing, engineering, scientific and simulation resources to the emerging research program at Fermilab.
-- Accelerator and Detector Simulations and Support Department
The mission of the Accelerator and Detector Simulation and Support (ADSS) Department of the Computing Division is to develop and apply scientific software tools for accelerator and detector design, physics analysis and theoretical studies, to help users deploy and utilize these tools, and to provide leadership, scientific knowledge, and technical expertise in computational physics at the laboratory.
-- Scientific Simulation for Experiments Group
The mission of the SSE group is to develop physics applications and provide
computational physics support for experiments and technological efforts
which are (or which may become) elements of the Lab's mission. This ranges
from participation in computational aspects of specific existing experiments
and programs, through development of applications and techniques for common
HEP needs, to computation-related support and participation in proposals
for new experiments. The group will maintain readiness and flexibility to
be able to provide scientifically skilled and computer-savvy support to
projects vital to the Fermilab mission.
-- Computing Enabling Technologies Group
The mission of the CET group is the development, application, instruction, evaluation, and distribution of productivity enhancement and resource utilization improvement tools and methods for the scientific community. The group also acts as a flexible resource for high-priority projects identified by the Computing Division to apply software engineering expertise to application and infrastructure development, design review and consultation, and problem analysis and definition.
-- Generators and Detector Simulations Group
The Generators and Detector Simulation Group (GDS) supports simulations
activities relevant to current and future Fermilab projects, by
providing expertise in detector and physics modeling tools. The Group
concentrates on support and development of physics generators for Run II
and future energy frontier experiments, as well as on GEANT4 based
detector simulation applications related to future experiments such as
The development and maintenance of physics libraries related to
simulations, such as HepMC and HepPDT, are also part of the GDS efforts.
-- Computational Physics for Accelerators Group
The mission of the Computational Physics for Accelerators group is to advance the study of accelerator physics through simulation. We develop state-of-the-art accelerator physics software and perform simulations.
-- DAQ and Controls Department
The mission is to provide technical advice, develop and support performant,
robust, and well documented DAQ and Controls related software solutions to
Fermilab, the Fermilab user community and the global ILC effort in a timely
manner, appropriately reflecting Computing Division and Laboratory priorities.
The organization provides services tailored to the needs of the client, ranging
from design and independent reviews of systems and software to development and
support of new systems including high and low level project management where
appropriate, with the highest level of professionalism and excellence.
-- Applications and Infrastructure Software Group
-- Controls and Collaborative Tools Groupp
-- Electronic Systems Engineering Department
The mission of CD Engineering is to provide high quality design,
implementation, maintenance and project management support for hardware systems
for HEP and Astrophysics experimentalists and phenomenologists. Hardware
systems include board and system level hardware and firmware, and
