RMS TECHNOLOGIES TO DEVELOP NETHERLANDS WEATHER SYSTEM

 RMS TECHNOLOGIES TO DEVELOP NETHERLANDS WEATHER SYSTEM
 MARLTON, N.J., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- RMS Technologies, Inc., a


Marlton-based information system engineering firm, has been awarded a one-year contract to provide a weather forecast system to the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), the official meteorological organization of the Netherlands.
 In December 1992, RMS, through the Geophysical Sciences Division of its Systems Integration Group (SIG), will install the first of four meteorological workstations at KNMI headquarters in DeBilt. The workstations will utilize a customized version of RMS' weather software system, METLAB II. METLAB II is an integrated, user-friendly system uniquely designed to graphically display multiple data feeds simultaneously in one application. KNMI meteorologists will have the ability to manipulate and modify available weather data from a number of sources, and provide more accurate and timely weather forecasts to industry, business and the general public.
 "This is a most gratifying project for RMS," said Steve Feinman, vice president, SIG. "We are pleased that KNMI has selected RMS to provide the first workstation-based weather system to be used for the full range of weather forecasting activities."
 In June 1993, additional METLAB II workstation installations should be completed at the Hoek van Holland Marine Forecasting Center (near Rotterdam), Schipol Airport in Amsterdam, and at DeBilt. Final implementation of the workstations will be realized by year's end.
 Other RMS customers who are utilizing the METLAB weather system are the U.S. Naval Academy, Southwest Airlines, Air Canada, Universal Weather & Aviation and Weather Central.
