1 CREATE Overview 7/16/2010 Page-1 DISTRIBUTION STATEMENT A. Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited. Computational Research and Engineering Acquisition Tools and Environments (CREATE) Dr. Douglass Post CREATE Program Manager Chief Scientist DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program

2 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-2 Distribution Specified on First Slide CREATE Program Concept Enable major improvements in the acquisition process –Prevent defects and design flaws early in the acquisition process –Reduce rework thereby enabling faster system deployment How? –Inject multi-physics based predictions early within the design and analysis process –Develop and deploy production quality design and analysis software that is adaptable and maintainable –Develop and deploy multi-physics based Computational Engineering tools that exploit next generation computer resources CREATE is a multi-year program, funded at $40M to date –Funding started in FY2008 –Initiated by USD(AT&L) in 2008

3 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-3 Distribution Specified on First Slide CREATE – Four Projects, Ten Products Air Vehicles DaVinci - Rapid conceptual design Kestrel - High-fidelity, full vehicle, multi-physics analysis tool for fixed-wing aircraft Helios - High-fidelity, full vehicle, multi-physics analysis tool for rotary-wing aircraft Firebolt - Module for propulsion systems in fixed and rotary-wing air vehicles Ships RDI - Rapid Design and Synthesis Capability—Partnership with ONR and NAVSEA NESM - Ship Shock & Damage-prediction of shock and damage effects NAVYFOAM - Ship Hydrodynamics-predict hydrodynamic performance IHDE - Environment to facilitate access to Naval design tools RF Antenna SENTRI - Electromagnetics antenna design integrated with platforms Meshing and Geometry Capstone - Components for generating geometries and meshes

4 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-4 Distribution Specified on First Slide 32 Months After Program Start, CREATE Is Beginning To Deliver Usable Software. Antenna Radiation Near Fields Free Space More accurate vortex shedding Kestrel vs. F-16 Flight Data M=0.95, Alt.=10,000 ft 5 beta releases in FY09/10 with V&V and ~ 150 beta testers: Helios 1.0—Accurate calculation of rotorcraft vortex shedding Kestrel 1.0—Rigid body CFD fixed wing AV with preliminary aeroelastics SENTRI 1.0 and 1.5—Initial RF antenna design and analysis with V&V NESM 0.1—Initial ship shock vulnerability analysis for underwater explosions IHDE 1.0—Iinitial user interface for ship hydrodynamics 10 releases planned for FY10/11 and each succeeding year Helios 2.0, Kestrel 2.0, SENTRI 2.0, NESM 1.0 and IHDE 2.0 plus: Rapid design: RDI 1.0 for Ships, DaVinci 1.0 for Aircraft plus SENTRI 2.0 Components: Capstone 1.0 for geometry and mesh, Firebolt 1.0 for gas turbines Detailed ship hydrodynamics NavyFoam 2.0 (seakeeping, drag, resistance,…) Developing approaches to improve scalability

5 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-5 Distribution Specified on First Slide Path Forward DoD has an opportunity to substantially reduce product development time –Requires adoption of multi-physics based software design and analysis tools by both government and industry We don’t have a lot of insight into how these products can move into industry –Council on Competitiveness studies document that industry has been slow to adopt multi-physics software How do we make this happen?

6 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-6 Distribution Specified on First Slide Back-up slides

7 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-7 Distribution Specified on First Slide Present Systems Engineering Iterated Design  Build  Test Cycles Long time to deployment Requires many lengthy and expensive design/build/test iteration loops Process converges slowly, if at all Design flaws discovered late in process Build Physical Product RequirementsDesign Test Physical Product Market (Many) Design iterations F-22 Flight Test

8 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-8 Distribution Specified on First Slide A Paradigm Shift in Product Development Is Underway Past : –Repeated Design  Build  Test Cycles Present: –Occasionally Augment Design  Build  Test with Limited Single-Physics Analysis by Use of Research or Commercial Codes Future: –Design Through Analysis, Multi-Physics Design and Analysis with Supercomputer Power –Repeated CAD  Mesh  Analyze Cycles Followed by a Few Design  Build  Test Cycles

9 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-9 Distribution Specified on First Slide Physics-based Engineering Software Helped The US Win Cold War. Nuclear weapons are complex, expensive, and hard to test ~ 5 to 10 tests per system DOE NNSA uses computational tools for: Design development, optimization, & analysis. DOE NNSA labs own the biggest supercomputers 1945 Atomic Bombs Heavy Hydrogen Bombs ICBM ( lighter, smaller ) MIRV (even lighter, smaller) Improved yield to weight SLBM (even lighter, smaller) Improved safety Improved robustness 2010 Computer Power GigaFlops/s 1,000,000 GigaFlops/s TestingWeapon CapabilityComputational Design Increasing Computational Design Capability Improvements over time: Solution methods Spatial resolution Temporal resolution Geometric fidelity 1-D to 2-D to 3-D Physics models ……. Underground Test ban Air Tests NIF

10 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-10 Distribution Specified on First Slide Critical Factors for Success We analyzed what worked and what didn’t –Must have a lot of experience in computational engineering –Must have the right people—especially team leaders who have demonstrated that they can succeed –Must have highly skilled and experienced multi-disciplinary team –Must have stable support We applied these principles to CREATE

11 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-11 Distribution Specified on First Slide The CREATE Approach Software is being built by government-led teams Each product has a roadmap –Each year there is a release of a usable application –Each release builds on the previous release and adds the increased capability called for in the roadmap –Each release is beta-tested by targeted user communities before production release Releases are scalable for massively computers and responsive to user requirements Users can access the applications, but we don’t plan to release source code

12 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-12 Distribution Specified on First Slide POC: Ms. Ryan Fitzgerald, FQ Engineer NAVAIR Early Success: Rapid Deployment of EP-3E Shadow-Ops: CREATE staff use computational tools to support acquisition programs  provide experience and establish connections and value Performed CFD analysis of impact of electronic countermeasure pod for EP-3E flight clearance--Not sufficient time for conventional process (flight tests) Eliminated construction cost of wind tunnel model and tests and need for contractor flying quality report. Provided aircraft flying qualities characteristics within required time frame. Provided data required to issue flight clearance in time for direct deployment. Reduced overall program cost and time. Only 1 flying qualities flight test required – Saving between 3-4 flight tests. System was deployed in the forward theatre in less than four months instead of twelve New Forward Component

13 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-13 Distribution Specified on First Slide Another Early Success Improved Flight Certification Process for Marine Corps UAV Problem: Expensive and lengthy UAV flight certification for small-vendor designs due to physical testing required for flight data. Solution: Joint Navy and CREATE Air Vehicles Shadow-Ops STUAS project used computational engineering tools to rapidly and cheaply develop the flight certification database. Benefits to DoD Aircraft Programs –Reduced time and cost by eliminating the need for physical model testing –Enabled industry competitiveness through quick Services assessment of many vendor designs –Provided unbiased performance data to STUAS Program Office for assessment of contractor vehicles Six new vendors are now able to compete for UAV contracts Engineers: Drs. Theresa Shafer / Gary N. McQuay - PMA-263 STUAS/Tier II UAS 8 foot wingspan

14 CREATE Overview 07/16/2010 Page-14 Distribution Specified on First Slide Analyze and Test Virtual Product Requirements Build and Test Physical Product Market Design iterations Reduced time to market from 3 years to less than 1 year Increased new products delivery from 1 every 3 years to 5 per year Some companies have adopted this paradigm.
