ThermoAnalytics has recently been awarded a $730,000 contract to develop a specialized software program for the U.S. Army. ThermoAnalytics was competitively selected for the Phase II contract under the U.S. Army Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The two-year contract will support the development of a specialized ground vehicle exhaust heating prediction program. The software will use advanced techniques for modeling the heat transfer from exhaust gas and the effect on surrounding vehicle components and the environment.
ThermoAnalytics was originally awarded a Phase I feasibility project on this subject in February 2002. Phase I projects are reviewed by the U.S. Army with the most promising projects being awarded Phase II funding. Phase II SBIR awards are chosen on the basis of their scientific and technical merit, future importance and eventual value to the U.S. Army, the company's capabilities, and the commercial potential.
"We are very excited to be working on the exhaust modeling program for the U.S. Army," said Dr. Dave Less, Principal Investigator for the program. "This project is important to the U.S. Army because it will help them design future combat vehicles and trucks that utilize stealth technologies to make them more difficult to detect on the battlefield."
Keith Johnson, ThermoAnalytics President, said, "This new contract will allow us to expand the Army's thermal analysis capabilities and will help us develop important new features in our existing thermal analysis software (RadTherm and WinTherm) which are used for thermal simulations in the automotive, aerospace, architectural, and electronics industries."
