VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb spoke with Dimitri “Dimi” Deserranno of Concepts NREC in White River Junction. Concepts NREC was awarded a contract through NASA’s Small Business Innovation Research Program for an integrated cryocooler in support of NASA’s ongoing Artemis program. Their conversation has been edited and condensed for clarity.

White River Junction, VT, USA – September 3, 2021 — Concepts NREC, the world’s leading turbomachinery software, design, development, testing and manufacturing company is pleased to announce Claudio Raia as the new Managing Director and Sales Manager of Concepts NREC Europe.

White River Junction, VT, USA – July 20, 2021

Concepts NREC is pleased to announce the successful inclusion of the Agile Engineering Design System® into Colorado State University’s Mechanical Engineering course curriculum on turbomachinery design. The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) aims to provide practical engineering experience to complement the theoretical underpinnings of undergraduate and graduate coursework. Co-taught by CSU Mechanical Engineering Professor Dr. Wajid Ali Chishty and turbomachinery aeromechanical design expert Mr. Eric Krivitzky of the independent Thermofluid Research Lab, the course focuses on bridging the gap between foundational knowledge of the classroom and application of that knowledge to engineering problems.

 

Design and Manufacture Higher Performance Turbomachinery in Less Time

 

White River Junction, VT, USA – June 11, 2021 — Concepts NREC is pleased to announce the release of version 2021.0 of the Agile Engineering Design System®.

The Agile Engineering Design System® is an integrated suite of software modules for Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) specialized for turbomachinery.

We are pleased to share that NASA's 2021 SBIR Program Phase I Selections include Dr. Dimitri Deserranno's proposal for an Integrated Brayton Cryocooler for LOx and LH2 Applications. Liquefaction of cryogenic propellant is a critical component of future exploration efforts, currently pursued within the Artemis program. Leveraging our existing Brayton cryocooler developments, we anticipate this program to lead to a significant increase in the cooling capacity of space-based cryocoolers. The increase in cooling capacity, combined with the integration of LOx and LH2 refrigeration capabilities, will allow NASA and its prime contractors to conduct ISRU and ZBO operations in orbit, on the moon and on Mars.

SAE Tech Briefs Product of the Month in February

Our integrated suite of software modules, the Agile Engineering Design System®, was featured as the SAE Tech Briefs Product of the Month in February. We appreciate the recognition and are proud of our team of developers as they continue to bring you new capabilities to design, optimize and manufacture turbomachinery components for best performance of rocket engine turbopumps, compressors, turbines and more.
