AFRL Signs Simulation Software Licensing Agreement With Pratt & Whitney, United Technologies - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThe U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory has licensed Pratt & Whitney and parent company United Technologies to use and implement a modeling and simulation software.

The FEMORPH platform was built to work with a design application in simulating the performance of aircraft engine parts before production, Wright-Patterson AF Base said Wednesday

The system was also designed to form manufacturing deviation impact assessments that may help the Air Force apply changes to avoid excessive costs.

Jeff Brown, a senior mechanical engineer at the AFRL, partnered with independent contractor Alex Kaszynski to develop the system that replicates computer models corresponding to new design configurations.

“It's the first of several software systems that we are working on to improve the design, test, and sustainment process of current and future engines,“ Brown said.

AFRL will require the firms to pay an annual license fee that will be used to support FEMORPH research and development efforts.
