Earlier this year the Hydrological Forecasting System based on Delft-FEWS (HyFS) was selected by the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) as its nomination for the Aust. Government ICT Awards in the Excellence in Applications Development category. HyFS was shortlisted as one of three national finalists.
Eventually, HyFS not finish up winning the overall category, but the BoM was proud to be recognised, particularly as ours was the only system that was not public facing.
The jury's comment was: "The BoM's HyFS is a world-leading numerical modeeling environment tailored to meet the stringent demands of real-time hydrological foreacsting. HyFS has provided the Australian community with a best-in-class hydrological forecasting system"
