NASA Demonstrates Unique Modeling Capability

21 February 2012

NASA recognised HyperSizer’s evolution from a NASA spinoff to a commercial success story when Craig Collier briefed NASA Deputy Administrator, Lori Garver, who visited the Langley Research Centre on Thursday, February 16th.

NASA explains that Collier has come full circle at NASA. Two decades ago, he was part of the NASA Langley team developing software to reduce the mass on high-speed aircraft designs and now he is Head of Collier Research Corporation, a software provider to the aerospace industry.

HyperSizer is used today at NASA centres across the country from early preliminary design all the way to final analysis test certification. NASA says it is used to meet mission critical schedules, reduce weight and save thousands of engineering hours. HyperSizer provides structural tools, methods research and software solutions.

According to NASA, they have licensed technology and hardware as part of their effort to transfer NASA-developed technology to US business. Collier Research was the first company to license software from NASA Langley.
