    RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY FOR AEROSPACE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY AREA 1 AIR BREATHING ENGINE TECH: RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR AEROSPACE PROPULSION SYSTEMS -TECHNOLOGY AREA 1 AIRBREATHING ENGINE TECHNOLOGY AND TECHNOLOGY AREA 3 INTEGRATED ROTORCRAFT PROPULSION AIRFRAME SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY. TASK ORDERS FOR AIRBREATHING ENGINE TECHNOLOGY AND INTEGRATED ROTORCRAFT PROPULSION CONTRACT IDIQ TO PRATT AND WHITNEY COMMERCIAL. 2.1 TECHNOLOGY AREA 1: AIR BREATHING ENGINE TECHNOLOGY NASA HAS REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION OF ADVANCED TURBINE ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES THAT WILL ENABLE REVOLUTIONARY IMPROVEMENTS IN EMISSIONS, NOISE, CAPACITY, AND SAFETY WITH INCREASED OPERATING EFFICIENCY AND REDUCED FUEL CONSUMPTION AS OUTLINED IN APPENDIX C-1. THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THESE AND OTHER GOALS WILL IN PART BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH THE EXECUTION OF TASK ORDERS. THE TECHNICAL ELEMENTS INCLUDED IN TECHNOLOGY AREA 1 ARE AS FOLLOWS: 2.1.1 CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT AND SYSTEMS STUDIES THE CONTRACTOR SHALL PERFORM CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT AND SYSTEM STUDIES OF NONTRADITIONAL PROPULSION AND/OR VEHICLE ARRANGEMENTS AND ADVANCED AEROSPACE SYSTEMS CONFIGURATIONS TO MEET NASA PROGRAM GOALS. THESE CONCEPTS INCLUDE CONVENTIONAL AND UNCONVENTIONAL HEAT ENGINES, ELECTRIC MOTORS, ALTERNATIVE FUELS, HEAT TRANSFER DEVICES, GEARBOXES, PROPULSION INTEGRATION, AND ADVANCED AEROSPACE SYSTEMS. SYSTEM STUDIES INCLUDE PERFORMING SYSTEM ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF AEROSPACE PROPULSION SYSTEMS AND THEIR INSTALLATIONS ON AEROSPACE VEHICLES TO EVALUATE ADVANCED ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES AND AEROSPACE SYSTEM CONCEPTS THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR IMPROVING SYSTEM PERFORMANCE, WEIGHT, EMISSIONS, FUEL BURN, NOISE, AND COSTS. THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY HAS ADOPTED THE NASA DEVELOPED NUMERICAL PROPULSION SYSTEM SIMULATION (NPSS) FRAMEWORK AS A STANDARD FOR PERFORMING THE STUDIES DESCRIBED ABOVE. MANY OF THE TASKS IN THIS AREA WILL REQUIRE THE USE OF NPSS, THEREFORE, THE CONTRACTOR MUST HAVE A DEMONSTRATED KNOWLEDGE OF THE APPLICATION OF NPSS MODEL DEVELOPMENT THROUGH USE IN PAST PROGRAMS OR APPLICATIONS. THE DEMONSTRATED ABILITY TO DEVELOP NPSS MODELS FOR COMPLEX UNCONVENTIONAL SYSTEMS AS WELL AS INTEGRATE NEW MODELS WITHIN THE NPSS FRAMEWORK IS ALSO REQUIRED. THE SCOPE OF WORK UNDER THIS ELEMENT INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING: (1) THE CONTRACTOR SHALL DEVELOP AND VALIDATE EMPIRICAL, STATISTICAL, AND PHYSICS-BASED ANALYTICAL MODELS THAT ARE ROBUST ENOUGH TO HANDLE NON-CONVENTIONAL CONFIGURATIONS. THESE MODELS MAY BE USED FOR UNDERSTANDING THE BASIC UNDERLYING PHYSICAL PHENOMENON OF THE SYSTEM OR SUBSYSTEM AS WELL AS FOR PREDICTING AEROSPACE SYSTEMS AND/OR COMPONENT PERFORMANCE, WEIGHT, EMISSIONS, RELIABILITY, LIFE, AND COST. (2) THE CONTRACTOR SHALL DEFINE GOALS AND FIGURES OF MERIT FOR OVERALL SYSTEMS AS WELL AS FOR INDIVIDUAL TECHNOLOGIES WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF OVERALL PROGRAM AND PROJECT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES. (3) THE CONTRACTOR SHALL CONDUCT TECHNOLOGY TRADE STUDIES, MISSION ANALYSES, AND MARKET AND COST SCENARIO STUDIES TO IDENTIFY AND EVALUATE AEROSPACE SYSTEMS AND ASSESS THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TOWARDS MEETING PROGRAM AND PROJECT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES. (4) THE CONTRACTOR SHALL PERFORM SYSTEM SIMULATIONS OF AEROSPACE SYSTEMS AND SUBSYSTEMS FROM A 0-D LEVEL UP THROUGH A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY 3-D LEVEL. (5) THE CONTRACTOR SHALL PERFORM AEROSPACE SYSTEMS CONCEPTUAL, PRELIMINARY AND/OR DETAILED DESIGN STUDIES IN SUPPORT OF ADVANCED CONCEPT DEFINITION, DEVELOPMENT AND/OR TESTING. (6) THE CONTRACTOR SHALL CONDUCT RISK ASSESSMENTS OF ADVANCED AEROSPACE SYSTEMS. 2.1.2 HIGH POWER DENSITY ENGINE TURBOMACHINERY THE CONTRACTOR SHALL IDENTIFY, EVALUATE, DEVELOP, AND DEMONSTRATE ADVANCED TURBOMACHINERY TECHNOLOGIES THAT RESULT IN REDUCED FUEL BURN, INCREASED EFFICIENCY, INCREASED SAFETY, INCREASED DURABILITY, INCREASED OPERABILITY, REDUCED NOISE AND/OR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF AIRCRAFT, ROTORCRAFT, OR OTHER AEROSPACE ENGINE SYSTEMS. THE SCOPE OF WORK UNDER THIS ELEMENT INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING: (1) THE CONTRACTOR SHALL DEVELOP AND PROVIDE ANALYSIS OF CONCEPTUAL AND DE
