Collier Research Corporation is working with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics (LM Aero) under United States Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) funding to develop a “certification-by-analysis” process to reduce unexpected failures during experimental testing that will, in turn, accelerate Air Force structural certification. The goal is early identification and avoidance of conceptual and preliminary design problems on new and sustaining aircraft programs using a “design-by-analysis” process that includes the commercial structural sizing software called HyperSizer®.
