Purdue Northwest Enters Research Agreement With Crane

Posted: Updated:
HAMMOND -

Purdue University Northwest's Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation has been awarded a cooperative agreement with Crane to research the ability to predict the lifespan of electronic components.

CIVS Director Chenn Zhou and Professor Hansung Kim's research using 3D models and simulations hopes to forecast the life cycle of system components in real-time, and find causes of the degradation. 

“Accurate prediction of component functionality over time and under changing conditions—that’s an objective both suited for and worthy of simulation and visualization investigative technologies,” Zhou said.

Dr. Alison Smith, chief engineer of Materials Analysis of Microelectronic Component Technologies within the Flight Systems Division at NSWC Crane, said, “Initiatives such as the Cooperative Agreement Program enable the NSWC Crane’s Chief Technology Office to serve as a synergy generator, allowing the federal laboratory to access and benefit from university science and technology expertise, while supporting pioneering research for the benefit of the public.”

The agreement supplies seed-funding for university research and collaboration with the federal laboratory. More information on PNW's CIVS can be found here

SB-12 then made its way to the full Senate. Preceded by a lengthy deliberation by the Senate’s Republican caucus, the Senate voted 33-16 in favor of a watered-down...
