IAI Awarded NASA Contract to Continue Research into Probabilistic Formulation of Multi-Fidelity Aerodynamic Databases

ROCKVILLE, Md. — Dec. 18, 2019 — Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a follow on contract by the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) to continue development of a tool for probabilistic formulation of multi-fidelity databases for aerodynamic data.

In this contract, IAI and its subcontractor, Stanford University, will explore methods to merge and assimilate computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation data with other data sources to create an integrated database. IAI will develop mathematical and statistical approaches for merging data, design methods to eliminate outlier numerical solutions and experimental data points, and quantify the level of uncertainties throughout the database.

IAI has extensive experience in design analysis, optimization, flight dynamics, and control techniques for complex systems. In developing this technology, IAI will leverage its extensive experience in high performance computing (HPC) to develop multi-fidelity aerodynamic databases for design of unconventional aircraft.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by NASA to explore innovative technologies that alleviate the high costs associated with wind tunnel testing and high-fidelity simulations,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI. “The proposed tool can fill in a critical gap in design optimization and certification tools used by NASA and the industry.”
