Abstract
Leveraging existing Simulation Based Design and Multidisciplinary Optimization (SBD / MDO) analyses, optimal hybrid torpedo configuration(s) will be developed. Engineering analyses will be performed on a new chemical oxygen storage and delivery concept and turbomachinery for the hybrid propulsion system. Analysis performed will result in component performance metrics that will be used in system optimization programs. The collaboration between organizations is facilitated through an ESB (Engineering Services Broker), that will provide access to computer programs, spreadsheets, and other applications that both reside and run on host computer(s) at the research institution and small business involved. The framework provides functionalities for integrating multiple applications, including those requiring human mediation. The selected optimized concept will be tested in a brassboard configuration in Phase II.
