Description: USAFA is seeking unclassified research white papers and proposals that do not contain proprietary information. If proprietary information is submitted, it is the offerors’ responsibility to mark the relevant portions of their proposal as specified in USAFA-BAA-2015 Amendment 0003. The HVSI invites white papers and proposals (if requested) for studies in many areas described further below. The HVSI funds and performs a range of hypersonic research tasks in support of the Department of Defense (DoD) High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP). HPCMP desires to improve computational simulations of hypersonic vehicles in support of DoD goals by accelerating the successful development of HPC software and hardware. HVSI has the objectives to: facilitate the development and documentation of a national vision for hypersonic vehicle simulation; co-fund projects in the gaps of current DoD, Department of Energy (DOE), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and industry research efforts critical to achieving DoD hypersonic vehicle simulation; facilitate transition of hypersonic research into production quality simulation software available to Government, academic, and industry acquisition partners; create a national repository for hypersonic simulation verification and validation data; provide computational resources to provide a measurable leap forward in hypersonic system simulation capability for DoD hypersonic system acquisition. The HVSI will be looking to improve computational simulation approaches including numerical methods, modeling approaches, and simulation of a variety of aerothermodynamic and propulsion aspects of hypersonic flight. Specific science and technology areas include turbulence, boundary layer transition, fluid-structure-thermal interactions, non-equilibrium chemistry, ablation, and combustion.
