The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) is seeking capability statements from organizations in support of enhancing the chemical and biological facility modeling toolset that is integrated into the Hazard Prediction and Assessment Capability (HPAC) program.
HPAC is a forward deployable software modeling capability utilized by the federal government to assist in emergency response to hazardous agent releases. The system’s fast running, physics-based algorithms enable users to model and predict hazard areas and human collateral effects in minutes.
HPAC provides the capability to accurately predict the effects of HAZMAT releases into the atmosphere and their impact on civilian and military populations.
The potential contract this Request for Information (RFI) supports will require operational user support and ongoing software maintenance for HPAC as well as expansion of system capabilities to support a changing threat environment.
Activities include identification of model components that could be improved through experimental testing; advising on experimental design and test conditions; test data analysis; verification and validation of various models; and working with code developers to implement changes to interface and planning tools.
Further details are available via Solicitation Number: DTRA-CBFac-(CB3618). The response deadline is Feb 28, 2017.
