AccelerEyes develops Jacket, a software platform that delivers GPU computing power to desktop users of MATLAB and other very high-level languages. It enables faster prototyping and problem solving across a range of government, manufacturing, energy, media, biomedical, financial, and scientific research applications. The Jacket software platform provides accelerated performance for common arithmetic and linear algebra functionality across the complete line of CUDA-capable GPUs from NVIDIA, including top of the line Tesla GPUs as well as Quadro visualization GPUs and GeForce gaming GPUs.

"Fast statistics functions are important for the environmental quality modeling and computational science work we do," said Dr. Kevin Tubbs of High Performance Technologies, Inc. "Jacket 1.6 is an important step forward in making statistics fast for MATLAB programmers."
