IntelliBridge, through its Alethix subsidiary, has won a three-year, $6.5 million contract with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) to provide cloud readiness development services for the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS). AWIPS is the cornerstone computer system used by NWS forecasters to integrate observational weather data and imagery to produce the agency’s core forecast and warning products. Through the work on the contract, IntelliBridge will refactor AWIPS to run natively in the cloud as well as better synthesize the multiple incoming data flows which will enable future NWS forecasters greater flexibility in where they perform their duties.
“We’re very excited about the opportunity to continue to support NWS with this important mission, as well as its future potential,” said Matt Candy, Chief Growth Officer at IntelliBridge. “Our long-term support of NWS transformational change efforts combined with our superior technical capabilities in advanced Cloud engineering, Data Analytics and DevSecOps will allow this highly competitive effort to be successful.”
With a focus on the sector’s rapidly evolving technology, the new systems architecture will be built to easily adapt as new weather tracking science is developed. “This program represents a complex and critical transformation of AWIPS and it plays a critical role in furthering NOAA’s mission to build a weather-ready nation,” said IntelliBridge Chief Technology Officer Joanie Barr. “Our team has a deep understanding of NWS’s vision and the critical role a cloud based AWIPS architecture will promote the agility and flexibility needed to enable NWS to meet its partners where they are to execute the mission. We are excited to lead this transformational shift for the Service.”
