Quality Assurance (QA) Support
functional area consists of applying engineering and analytical disciplines
to ensure that the processes and products used
in the design, development, fabrication, manufacture of result in quality products.
will provide physics based modeling services and software tools, applying
engineering and analytical disciplines to ensure that the processes and products
used in the design, development, fabrication, manufacture will result in quality
will draw on its experience in supporting NAVSEA, Carderock ( Philadelphia
) and ONR in creating advanced modeling techniques for the design, verification
and validation of designs based on current work with ONR and its
Ship Smart System Design (S3D) program.
ITE will use physics modeling and engineering analysis services to complement
the engineering efforts of NSWC and their support contractors. This obviates
the requirement that NSWC purchase and maintain software, though they may.
The work can be provided quickly on site but, even more effectively be performed
by ITE off-site as was done on the LPD17 Program where nine major vital systems
were modeled and analyzed using ITE services.
Additional services can include structuring the physics models to support
IV&V, dock & sea trials as well as live fire testing.
