Scott Morton DoD HPCMP CREATE-AV Project Manager U.S. Army Engineering Research and Development Center
AIAA SciTech Forum 2020
Dr. Scott A. Morton manages the Air Vehicles component of the U.S. DoD HPCMP Computational Research Engineering Acquisition Tools and Environments (CREATE) Program. The project, CREATE-AV, produces a suite of three major products, ADAPT, an aircraft design and optimization tool, Helios, a helicopter virtual aircraft simulation tool, and Kestrel, a fixed wing virtual aircraft tool, delivering capabilities to the U.S. Defense Aerospace Industry in response to prioritized needs of the U.S. Armed Services. These products are architected to exploit current and future High Performance Computing (HPC) systems to enable use of multi-disciplinary, physics-based simulation software to generate actionable engineering data in support of Defense Acquisition. Dr. Morton has specialized in the areas of high angle of attack aerodynamics, aeroelasticity, and computational stability and control in his 34+ year career developing DoD software. He is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), and an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
