ABSTRACT: This Phase II proposal concerns the expansion of the MDO methodology developed in the Phase I for air vehicle design to integrate subsystem placement, topology, shape and sizing multi-disciplinary and multi-objective optimization of full air vehicle configurations. The planed software should be enable transformative air vehicles that can assist USAF securing and enforcing Air Superiority. BENEFIT: We expect that the methodology developed in the Phase II of this SBIR will be applicable to the design and development of military [as well as dual application to civilian] aerospace vehicles producing lighter weight vehicles with improved performance.
