The combination of the DLBA and Leidos structural engineering capabilities brings significant benefit to our customers and their programs. The Leidos team brings additional composite engineering capability (2 composite structural engineers and a composite manufacturing engineer, formerly of Gurit (USA) Inc.).
The team has significant experience in high end, advanced marine vessels and carbon and e-glass prepreg and infusion composite construction. The team focuses on high-speed naval vessel design and analysis and has significant experience in the design and analysis of production motor yachts, racing yachts and custom super yachts to accurately predict their structural performance.
Analyses include designs of classed vessels to American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Lloyd’s Register and International Organization for Standardization (ISO). On the military side, Sea Hunter and Seahawk are advanced wave piercing trimarans, designed to ABS High-Speed Naval Craft (HSNC). They were analyzed using the teams advanced Finite Element Analysis (FEA) design capability (Altair HyperWorks software suite) using ply-based modelling to create and analyze a whole vessel model.
