Metis Technology Solutions employees Nick Califano and Jie Li presented papers on their work at the January 2024 AIAA Scitech Conference held in Orlando, Florida. The papers describe advancements in the unsteady Pressure Sensitive Paint (uPSP) research being conducted at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. Metis is supporting NASA and our prime contractor, Jacobs Engineering, with this research in an exciting field that has the potential to revolutionize wind tunnel flow visualization as can be seen in the model visualization below. Mr. Li presented the paper “Aeroacoustic Analysis using Dynamic Mode Decomposition of Unsteady Pressure-Sensitive Paint Measurements,” and Mr. Califano presented “Advancements in the Camera Setup for Unsteady Pressure Sensitive Paint at NASA Ames Research Center.” In addition, Metis employee Evan Crowe co-authored the paper “Velocity and Temperature Measurements in High-speed Flows with Naturally Present Dust Particles Using Rayleigh and Mie Scattering” and several Metis employees were named as co-authors on the paper ”NASA’s Unsteady Pressure-Sensitive Paint Phase I Development Overview” presented by E. Lara Lash of NASA Ames Research Center.
“Metis is proud to see our employees sharing their advancements with the research community and others interested in advancing instrumentation technology, as well as potential users of the technology”, said Metis Senior Vice President of Space Programs Brian Eslinger.
