DREAM Integration Will Improve Accuracy of Predictive
Biological & Chemical Hazard Events
Syracuse, NY – SRC, Inc. was recently awarded a follow-on contract from the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to continue developing accurate hazard prediction models for chemical threats.
Under this contract, SRC will improve the Department of Defense’s capability to predict and track nuclear, biological, chemical and toxic industrial material events and effects with more validity and accuracy to real life scenarios. This will be accomplished by enhancing the accuracy and applicability of DTRA’s Droplet Reaction and Evaporation of Agents Model (DREAM), which SRC previously redesigned and integrated into the operational tool known as the Joint Effects Model – Science & Technology Prototype/Hazard Prediction and Assessment Capability. Under this follow-on effort, SRC will also integrate DREAM into the Joint Effects Model for use by warfighters.
“This contract leverages SRC’s 20 plus years of experience with defense against chemical and biological warfare,” said Paul Tremont(headshot), president and CEO of SRC. “Our cross-functional team has a deep understanding of chemical and biological agents’ behavior in the environment, strong software engineering capabilities, and has worked closely with our customers to determine requirements. We have had the honor of supporting DTRA on previous phases of the DREAM program and are proud to have been selected to participate in the next phase of this effort.”
