SAN FRANCISCO, CA and LOS ALAMOS, NM--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2013) - Locus Technologies (Locus), the industry leader in Web-based environmental software, announced today that Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has chosen to extend its contract with Locus for four more years.
LANL is a United States Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory, managed and operated by Los Alamos National Security (LANS), located in Los Alamos, N.M. LANL conducts multidisciplinary research in national security, outer space, renewable energy, medicine, nanotechnology, and supercomputing. LANL is one of three laboratories in the United States at which the government conducts classified work to care for the nation's nuclear weapons stockpile.
Modifications that accompany the extended contract include additional functionality for air data management and reporting that involves better flexibility for increased data transparency. LANL also will put more focus on field and mobile devices, and significant enhancements will be made to Intellus New Mexico, the public-facing website that Locus created for LANL's data.
The original contract between LANL and Locus began in 2011, with the option of extending the contract for four additional years. LANL will continue to use Locus' Environmental Information Management software (EIM) to address legacy site contamination and to take a better aggregate view of its operations for environmental stewardship.
"We are very proud that LANL trusts our EIM software to continue assisting it with its environmental data management requirements," said Neno Duplan, President and CEO of Locus. "We look forward to continuing to work with the team of talented professionals at LANL, and also continuing to assist DOE sites with their environmental data management challenges."
"High-quality data is a crucial component in environmental stewardship and our commitment to transparency with the public," said Chris Echohawk, office leader of the Laboratory's Operations Improvement Office.
