In astrophysics SIMP is an abbreviation of Strongly Interacting Massive Particle. SIMPs could form the inferred dark matter despite their strong interactions with ordinary matter.

SIMPs have been proposed as a solution for the ultra high energy cosmic ray problem and for the absence of cooling flows. Various experiments and observations have set constraints on SIMP dark matter.
