Grant to provide computational modeling support for hypersonic vehicles

1 May 2019 West Lafayette - HySonic Technologies LLC, which specializes in the development of computational models for the simulation of flow problems of interest to the defense industry, has received a federal grant worth $140,000. The start-up, founded by Carlo Scalo, a Purdue University assistant professor of mechanical engineering, received a Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research grant from the Navy. Carlo Scalo said the funding will be used to provide computational modelling support toward designing long-lasting and sustainable hypersonic vehicles.

The start-up, founded by Carlo Scalo, a Purdue University assistant professor of mechanical, and aeronautical and astronautical engineering, courtesy appointment, received a Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the U.S. Navy.

Carlo Scalo said the funding will be used to provide computational modelling support toward designing long-lasting and sustainable hypersonic vehicles. Hypersonic vehicles are capable of flying at least six times the speed of sound. At those extreme speeds, structural integrity of the vehicle is the primary concern.

"We are leveraging years of fundamental research carried out in my research group at Purdue sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research", Carlo Scalo stated.

HySonic Technologies last year won a $20,000 "Black Award" investment through the Elevate Purdue Foundry Fund, a joint venture between Elevate Ventures , a private venture development organisation, and the Purdue Foundry, an entrepreneurship and commercialization accelerator. Carlo Scalo said that funding helped HySonic Technologies be competitive for this SBIR award.

"Purdue and the Purdue Research Foundation provided valuable support needed to help get HySonic Technologies started. We will work feverishly to compete for Phase 2 funding, which could provide up to $1 million in funding to advance our company", Carlo Scalo stated.

The technology aligns with Purdue's Giant Leaps celebration, acknowledging the university's global advancements in space as part of Purdue's 150th anniversary. It is one of the four themes of the yearlong celebration's Ideas Festival, designed to showcase Purdue as an intellectual center solving real-world issues.
