Optimizing Decision-Making in Outer Space
Exploring the skies and beyond requires connecting the dots and thinking outside the box simultaneously. Datum Software's deep expertise provided what was needed and more.
1. Challenge: The United States Air Force needed an enterprise solution that provided physics-based, high fidelity models that could support rapid analysis and rapid design to improve the quality of early USAF aerospace system acquisition decisions.
2. Solution: DaVinci is designed around a unified life-cycle engineering model encompassing multi-fidelity analysis for a wide range of applications. At its core, DaVinci provides next generation modeling capability for functional analysis, alternative design evaluation, tradespace exploration, and acquisition planning.
The DaVinci framework provides a systems-engineering-approach-based application to allow designers, engineers, and users to develop an enterprise-acquisition-systems engineering design, synthesis, analysis, integration, & optimization system. It allows USAF to develop & transition maintainable, extensible, validated, scalable, and productive Computationally Based Engineering (CBE) tools for accomplishing aerospace conceptual design and systems lifecycle modeling.
The solution was based on open enterprise architecture and product strategies focusing on designing DaVinci based upon representation state transfer (REST) principals, dynamic federated computing, metadata management, and business process management. We provide the design and development of business process and orchestration using Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) methodologies and are building a networked and secure enclave for the DaVinci enterprise infrastructure.
