Potential NASA applications will include the use of the developed software with any complex integrated space system. Additionally, due to the modular nature of the tool and the use of widely available commercial software many different applications could be studied across most, if not all, of the NASA centers.
M4 Engineering has active relationships with several prime contractors who are likely users of this technology. These include Boeing Phantom Works, Northrop Grumman, and Raytheon. These provide excellent commercialization opportunities for the technology. The development of an integrated multi-disciplinary analysis and optimization tool leveraging commonly used commercial software is expected to find wide application to many aerospace and non-aerospace products. Examples include aerospace/defense, turbomachinery, automotive and alternative energy applications.
