GDI Wins $89.5 Million High-Performance Computing Contract With EPA
General Dynamics Information Technology has received the High-End Scientific Computing II Support Services work order from the Environmental Protection Agency.
The contract has a total value of $89.5 million with a one-year base and six option years.
The HESC program provides EPA researchers and scientists with the supercomputing hardware, modeling, and data visualization capabilities needed to solve complex research problems. Applications include atmospheric modeling, computational fluid dynamics, bioinformatics, computational chemistry, and statistical modeling.
“We are proud of our continued support of the EPA since 1978, and this new mission order provides our scientific computing experts and the company’s HPC Center of Excellence the opportunity to significantly advance the mission. criticism of the EPA,” said Kevin Connell, vice president and general manager of GDI. director of science and engineering.
GIT will provide, maintain, and support the agency’s high-performance computing environment, as well as provide infrastructure support, environmental and life science modeling, and scientific advice to EPA investigators. GIT will also provide technical support for scientific computing projects carried out in on-premises, cloud or hybrid environments.
This task order continues the supercomputing expertise provided by GDI and its HPC Center of Excellence supporting programs in civil and health agencies and the Department of Defense.
Last year, GIT built and deployed two supercomputers, currently ranked #46 and #47 fastest in the world, to support the next generation of weather forecasting models for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service. .
