INTEGRAL SYSTEMS GROUP SHARES NASA 'SOFTWARE OF THE YEAR' AWARD.

An Integral Systems, Inc. team supporting NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio, is part of a group that was selected co-winner of NASA's Software of the Year Award 2001. The Integral team has been working for two years to support Glenn's Numerical Propulsion System Simulation (NPSS), an effort that has received NASA's prestigious "Turning Goals Into Reality" (TGIR) award last April.

NPSS is a multi-disciplinary effort using state-of-the-art computing and communication technology and enabling aerodynamics, structural engineering, and heat transfer analyses. It offers important technological advances in designing aircraft engines, increasing safety and efficiency, and to increasing the U.S. leadership in aerospace. One of the industry users of the system, the General Electric Aircraft Engines Company, has predicted a resultant 55 percent reduction in engine analysis time.

The development of NPSS was led by Glenn with funding support from the NASA Ames High-Performance Computing and Communications Program. The development team includes NASA civil servants and contractors, industry partners, and the Department of Defense. "Our team is honored to receive this award. The integrated team has proven to be essential to the success of NPSS. NPSS Version 1 is a world-class propulsion system simulation tool that provides a distinct competitive advantage. Congratulations to the outstanding members of the NPSS production team," said Cynthia Naiman, Glenn NPSS Project Manager.

The Integral team works under subcontract to information services provider RS Information Systems (RSIS) and is part of Integral's I&T (Integration and Test) and Data Systems Division. "We're tremendously proud of this team. Simulation is already critically important throughout the aerospace industry, and this group has increased its value even further," said Richard Isaacman, Integral's I&T Division Operations Director.
