Department of Defense HPCMP Create Genesis Software Suite Evaluation

Anthony Christopher Pirone, Forrest Mobley
  • Technical Paper
  • 2020-01-0023
To be published on 2020-03-10 by SAE International in United States
The Department of Defense High Performance Computing Modernization Program CREATE Genesis software suite is a newly developed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) package targeted towards education and research. The purpose of this project is to evaluate this software suite, which is divided into three parts known as Genesis-Geometry, Capstone, and GenesisCFD, for potential use for Senior Capstone projects at Embry – Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) in Prescott Arizona. Based on the research findings, certain aspects of this software suite could be implemented while others cannot be recommended for various reasons. Genesis-Geometry, a Computer Aided Drafting program, is unrefined and difficult to learn and use, so cannot be recommended for implementation. Although Capstone is a decent tool for meshing simple objects like wings and cylinders, as the geometry becomes larger in volume and more complex the program quickly struggles or fails completely. GenesisCFD is robust and easy to use as a CFD software and although simplistic, GenesisCFD is suitable for most educational and undergraduate research simulation cases. It is also easy to learn and understand, even with…

Marking of Electrical Insulating Materials

AE-8A Elec Wiring and Fiber Optic Interconnect Sys Install
  • Aerospace Standard
  • AS5942
  • Current
Published 2019-12-27 by SAE International in United States
This specification establishes the performance requirements for the identification of wire and cable by indirect markings that have been applied to electrical insulating materials including heat shrink sleeving, wrap around labels and “tie-on” tags as well as any other types of materials used for indirect marking. This specification covers the processes used to mark these materials, including impact ink marking, thermal transfer, hot stamp, and lasers, etc. This specification does not cover the direct marking on insulated electrical wires and cables.

Engineered Solutions for Enclosure Sealing and Insulation

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35668
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

In the aerospace and defense industries, enclosure sealing and insulation needs to meet challenging and complex requirements. For example, the EMI gaskets that are used in military touchscreens must shield sensitive electronics from electromagnetic interference (EMI) while providing electrical conductivity and ensuring environmental sealing. These enclosure gaskets must also cushion the unit from mechanical shock and avoid interfering with the display's touch function.

Marking Aircraft Components

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35683
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Numbers are critical to the smooth functioning of the international aerospace industry. Regulatory authorities such as the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) and the US Department of Defense (DoD) mandate that aero components be permanently marked to ensure authenticity and traceability throughout the supply chain and into service.

How Augmented Reality Can Modernize Aerospace And Defense Manufacturing

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35685
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

You've probably heard about augmented reality (AR) in the context of consumer entertainment: video gaming, virtual tours, or interactive displays. But AR for enterprise business is here. It's no longer an emerging technology, or a novelty; businesses are using AR to overhaul processes, drive efficiencies, reduce manufacturing errors, and improve their bottom line.

Performance Specifications for Anthropomorphic Test Device Transducers

Safety Test Instrumentation Stds Comm
  • Ground Vehicle Standard
  • J2570_201911
  • Current
Published 2019-11-13 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Recommended Practice defines the minimum performance specifications for sensors used within anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs) when performing impact tests per SAE J211. It is intended that any agency proposing to conduct tests in accordance with SAE J211 shall be able to demonstrate that the transducers they use would meet the performance requirements specified in this document.

Logistics Product Data

LCLS Life Cycle Logistics Supportability
  • Aerospace Standard
  • GEIASTD0007C
  • Current
Published 2019-11-06 by SAE International in United States
SAE GEIA-STD-0007C defines logistics product data generated during the requirement definition and design of an industry or government system, end item, or product. It makes use of the Extensible Markup Language (XML) through the use of entities and attributes that comprise logistics product data and their definitions. The standard is designed to provide users with a uniform set of data tags for all or portions of logistics product data. The standard can be applied to any industry or government product, system or equipment acquisition program, major modification program, and applicable research and development projects. This standard is for use by both industry and government activities. As used in this standard, the requiring authority is generally the customer and the customer can be a government or industry activity. The performing activity may be either a industry or government activity. The use of the term “contract” in this standard includes any document of agreement between organizations.

Robots Track Moving Objects with Sub-Centimeter Accuracy

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35461
Published 2019-11-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

A system was developed that uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags to help robots target moving objects with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The system could enable greater collaboration and precision by robots working on packaging and assembly, and by swarms of drones carrying out search-and-rescue missions. Robots using the system can locate tagged objects within 7.5 milliseconds, on average, and with an error of less than a centimeter.

Facial Recognition Technology Works in the Dark

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35441
Published 2019-11-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Thermal cameras like forward looking infrared (FLIR) sensors are actively deployed on aerial and ground vehicles, in watch towers, and at check points for surveillance purposes. More recently, thermal cameras have become available for use as body-worn cameras. The ability to perform automatic face recognition at night using such thermal cameras is beneficial for informing a soldier that an individual is someone of interest, like someone who may be on a watch list.
