Dynamics Research Corp., an Andover company that provides technology and consulting services to government agencies, said it has been awarded a contract to provide high-performance computing software development and technical services to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA.
The three-year contract has a ceiling value of $9.7 million, said Dynamics Research, which refers to itself as DRC.
Specifically, DRC’s services will go to support NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. The lab does research that seeks 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, the company said in a press release.
“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, DRC senior vice president, said in a statement. “High performance computing is critical to NOAA’s scientific research and discovery mission.”
