2014

  • January 2014, Technology Review: Integration of Naval Design Tools, 3-D CAD with Realtime Object Model Physics for Dynamic Verification and Validation before releasing drawings for ship production. ITE was privileged to work with leading CAD and Physics Design Tools companies for both DDG1000 and Virginia Class Submarines. Technical Papers at the TAB, Technical Papers, describes these design processes.
  • April 2014, ITE Naval Sea System Command Seaport Contract, Third 5-Year Award, to April 2019
  • May and June 2014, ITE provides additional licenses for advanced Physics Based Ship Design Software to ship designers in USA and Korea for Dynamic Verification and Validation as described on this website.

DDG1000 ............. and .................... Virginia Class Submarines ...... both, used / use integrated CAD-Physics dynamic Verification and Validation (V&V) during various phases of design. These two design tools were specified to be used independently for naval ship deign in the LPD17 program in the late 1990s. As the DD21 program began in 1999 the idea of integrating CAD and physics was advanced to the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP). Over the period 2000-2 NSRP funded demonstrations of 3D CAD and Physics integration using facilities at General Dynamics Electric Boat. NSRP designs were made in 3D CAD of the major CAD companies and then, by agreed protocol, the physics model objects were electronically imported into CAD, thus permitting real-time DYNAMIC V&V, an operational simulation, of the created HM&E processes prior to the release of the drawings to production. In 2001 the DD21 program faded and returned as DDX. ... then after 2006 became the DDG1000 Program.

Complete technical descriptions of why and how CAD-Physics design integration is achieved are described in the TAB Technical Papers on this website.

  • May 2011, ITE (USA), Simsmart (Canada), WST R&D Center (ROK), present Technical Paper Objective Model Based Control Systems (OMBCS) at ASNE Intelligent Ship Symposium (ISS IX) 2011 - Paper provides a paradigm shift to reduce the Total Ownership Costs (TOC) of Navy ships. Physics Based Object Models used in the design of naval ships have attributes for position, size, and weight, ... and performance such as power, Watts, flow rates, ... as well as attributes for Acquisition and Life-Cycle Costs. Today though these costs and return (ROI) on investment attributes could be used, they are not, thus TOC is not a critical decision option made in the early design stages. An example of an OMBCS for a commercial mine enterprise is provided to show how TOC and ROI can be calculated early in the design to prove the business feasibility. Paper and slides are posted in the Technical Papers Tab.
