ANDOVER, Mass., July 30 -- Dynamics Research Corporation, a leading technology and management consulting company focused on driving performance, process, and results for government clients, today announced that it has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement for high performance computing software development and technical services at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL). The contract has a ceiling value of $9.7 million and a 3-year period of performance.
Under the terms of the contract, DRC will provide an array of technical, scientific and management support services including application development, high performance computing tools development, network engineering, visualization, data engineering, software optimization, analysis of climate models and strategic planning.
NOAA's GFDL performs comprehensive, long 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. Critical to the GFDL mission is NOAA's high performance computing systems, which include large scalable computers, coupled with archiving systems, analytics, visualization, networking and telecommunications capabilities.
"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."
