ADSCFD Awarded U.S Air Force Contract for the Commercialization of CFD Technologies

United States Air Force Research Laboratory awards $1.5M in Commercialization Readiness Program Funding to ADSCFD

DANVILLE, Calif - December 13th, 2018 - AeroDynamic Solutions, Inc. (ADSCFD) has been awarded a 2-year, $1.5M contract from the U.S Air Force to validate and commercialize technologies developed under the SBIR phase II program titled "High Fidelity Predictions for Resonant Stress."  These technologies include ADSCFD's compute efficient Non-linear Harmonic Balance method for time accurate analysis, moving mesh technology for simulating vibratory motion, as well as the GPU accelerated flow solver which will dramatically reduce CFD simulation turnaround time while also reducing the cost for those simulations.

The purpose of the SBIR Commercialization Readiness Program is to smooth the transition of developed technologies from research to their integration into an end-users design system.  This allows ADSCFD to provide evaluation terms that go above and beyond what would normally be available as well as provide subsidized integration services to participants in the CRP.   

"We are very excited to be awarded SBIR commercialization funding," said Michael Ni, CEO of ADSCFD, "as it is proof of end-user interest in our SBIR developed technologies.  Also, this award shows the U.S. Air Force's commitment in seeing these technologies adopted by the industry and eventually used in improving U.S. Air Force platforms."
