After a brief introduction of AFRL and Multidisciplinary Science & Technology Center, the first hour of the seminar would include some basic details of what the Six Components of MDO are:

  • Organizational Structure & Process

  • Modeling the System for Design

  • Analysis for Design

  • Sensitivity Analysis

  • Design Space exploration

  • Computational Frameworks

The second hour would focus on the research taking place within ARFL Multidisciplinary Science & Technology Center in the area of MDA/MDO . This would be an overview of what the current reseacrh i in the areas of MDA/MDO and its application to 3 configurations.

  • High Altitude Long Endurance (Sensorcraft),

  • Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs)

  • Long Range Strike Configuration (LRS)
