As per the trusted sources of information, the Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS) which is located in the Florida State University has received a new contract from the Naval Sea Systems Command for carrying out the research and development of the shipboard electrical power and the energy systems. The contract was signed for an amount if USD 31 million.
Principal investigator at the contract from FSU, named Micheal Mischa Steurer stated that he and his team are really looking forward to the new contract that has come from the NAVSEA. He further added that it has been a great testament to the quality of the work that they have been giving out along with the credibility of their team in the community.
He further added that his team has the opportunity to make a major impact for the Navy fleet and the taxpayers as their aim is to provide low risk in the research and development cycles of the advanced power as well as energy technologies which are required to provide ships and capabilities that are required in the future.
As the part of the new contract, the CAPS researchers and their partners at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and several other universities will come up with approaches to implement the advanced modeling as well as simulation techniques in the Navy strategy to adopt the thorough digital engineering paradigm over the coming years.The work is based on improving the real time simulation based testing model and the evaluation system.
