DeVine Consulting, Inc. Awarded Subcontract to Provide R&D Support for the Naval Research Laboratory
Jun. 5, 2014 – MONTEREY, Calif. — DeVine Consulting, Inc. is very pleased to announce that it has been awarded a time and materials subcontract by Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAIC). The purpose of the prime contract # N00178-04-D-4119-EE01 awarded to SAIC is to provide Marine Meteorology Research and Development Support for the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Monterey, Calif. The contract was awarded to SAIC on March 31 and has an estimated value of more than $7 million. The contract was awarded through the Seaport-e contracting vehicle.
NRL Monterey Atmospheric Dynamics and Prediction Branch focuses on basic research and scientific and technological development related to the analysis and prediction of atmospheric processes that impact fleet operations and mission planning. Specifically, the investigation and quantitative description of dynamics and physics of the lower atmosphere and air-sea-land interface, on scales that range from the turbulence scale to the scale of planetary weather systems.
The branch also develops on-demand weather impact information systems and transitions them to operations to support naval missions in a variety of warfare areas, most notably strike, marine and special operations, and chemical-biological warfare. Special focus is given to tropical cyclones, which affect fleet forces around the globe.
Under this task order, as a subcontractor to SAIC, DeVine Consulting, Inc., will provide Marine Meteorology Research and Development Support to address the underlying dynamical and physical mechanisms that lead to observed atmospheric structures, and develop quantitative data fusion and display products, and data assimilation systems and models, including coupled air-ocean-ice-land-space models, that allow the accurate numerical analysis and prediction of atmospheric conditions from tactical to global scales.
