Post Douglass Post Named American Society of Naval Engineers Gold Medal Awardee for 2011

Dr. Douglass Post, chief scientist for the High Performance Computing Modernization Program, has been awarded the 2011 Gold Medal by the American Society of Naval Engineers. Since 1958, the Gold Medal Award has been awarded to individuals who have made a significant naval engineering contribution in a particular area during the past five years.

Post was recognized for his leadership and vision in establishing and realizing the Computational Research and Engineering Tools and Environments (CREATE) Program. Under Post's leadership, the CREATE Program is beginning to demonstrate that physics-based computational engineering tools can transform how the DoD approaches development and operation of weapons systems.
The HPCMP CREATE program is developing computational tools for developing air vehicles, ships and radio frequency antennas, as well as cross-cutting tools for Mesh and Geometry (MG) generation. The CREATE Ships Project develops and deploys design and analysis tools to assess hydrodynamic performance and vulnerability, and develops and optimizes design concepts for naval ships. The CREATE Air Vehicles Project tools enable development of air vehicle designs and assessment of the performance of fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft, including propulsion systems. The CREATE RF Antenna tools enable the design and development of multiple RF Antenna systems integrated with weapons platforms. The CREATE MG Project being executed by the Naval Research Laboratory facilitates rapid analysis of the performance of weapons systems.
