INDUS Corporation has won a new, multi-year contract from the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL), part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). INDUS will continue to provide support services for the management, operation, and maintenance of Information Technology (IT) systems in support of NSSL’s research, operations and training missions under the contract, valued at $9 million, with additional funding up to $8 million for special projects.
NSSL’s mission is to improve lead-time and accuracy of severe weather warnings and forecasts to save lives and reduce property damage. NSSL scientists strive to understand the causes of severe weather and explore new ways to use weather information to assist National Weather Service (NWS) forecasters and federal, university, and private-sector partners.
Shiv Krishnan, INDUS’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said “This award reflects the value of the partnership we have built with NOAA / NSSL over the past six years. We look forward to strengthening and expanding our partnership to enhance its capabilities to provide accurate and timely forecasts and warnings of hazardous weather events.”
