Dynamics Research Corporation (DRC) today announced that it has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for high performance computing software development and technical services at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL). The three-year contract has a value of $9.7 million.
The terms of the contract require DRC to provide an array of technical, scientific and management support services including application development, high performance computing tools development and network engineering, among other services.
“Through this contract, DRC will have the opportunity to leverage our core capability of architecting complex predictive modeling, data visualization and high performance computing software to help drive government results,” Paul Strasser, senior vice president of DRC’s High Performance Technologies Group. “High performance computing is critical to NOAA’s scientific research and discovery mission.”
NOAA’s GFDL performs lead-time research to expand the scientific understanding of the physical processes that govern the complex fluid systems of the atmosphere, oceans and their interactions with Earth’s biogeochemical cycles.
