CSRA snagged a contract with the Environmental Protection Agency to support the agency’s high-performance computing systems as well as its scientific visualization hardware and software, the company announced Tuesday.

Through the $58 million contract, CSRA will provision, maintain and support the agency’s high-performance computing environment and scientific visualization hardware and software, the company said in the announcement. The visualization technology uses computer modeling to track the potential movement of airborne contaminates, for example.

“We are thrilled to secure this new contract with the EPA and continue providing the agency with the best scientific and technical resources to carry out its mission,” said Paul Nedzbala, executive vice president and head of CSRA’s Health and Civil Group, in a statement.

Other CSRA federal customers include NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.


“Computational modeling and simulation are important tools that allow the EPA to perform the scientific research to guide decisions and better protect human health and the environment,” CSRA said in the announcement. “These techniques are increasingly used to solve complex research problems quickly and in a cost-effective manner.”
