Educational: Capstone and Genesis-CFD will be used as part of an applied aerodynamics course taught in both the fall and winter semesters.

Research: Genesis-CFD will be used by graduate student researchers to evaluate algorithms they develop for generating System Identification Models by encapsulating them as "plug-ins". Capstone will be used to generate the corresponding CFD grids.

Evaluation: Access to the Genesis Software suite is needed to assess the potential for our organization to use full-feature HPCMP CREATE software products as part of our corporate IRAD programs that target future Defense Programs.

Other*: Components of the Genesis Software suite are intended for design and analysis of our next generation UAS that targets videography of professional sporting events.
