Huntsville's WAFF News station visited CFD Research to discuss our recent NASA Vertical Lift Technology Development award and what it means for both NASA and the company.
The five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract has a ceiling value of $24 million. It's a major milestone for CFD Research on two key fronts: it's their first major service prime contract for NASA and their first major service prime contract outside of Huntsville.
CFD Research and its team of subcontractors will provide aeronautical engineering, research, and development for vertical lift technology development, including aeromechanics modeling and analysis, simulation facility hardware and software development, aircraft performance and flight control systems analysis and evaluation, and mission effectiveness analysis and management. Air traffic management development is also included to assess and integrate new operating procedures for efficiency and safety.
Sameer Singhal, President & CEO, talked about the work his company is doing with vertical lift, the next generation of helicopters.
