1 min read

The U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Research has awarded the University of South Carolina a nearly $10 million contract to study the potential of digital twin and advanced control system technologies in boosting the performance of shipboard power and energy systems.

USC will provide science and technology research services to the Digital Twins for Resilient Power and Energy Systems project over a 36-month period, the Department of Defense said Friday.

The goals of the project are to apply DT technology to automate the prediction of system component interactions in unplanned events or power disruptions, improve the system recovery rate and increase coordination of the components in routine operations.

ONR used the service branch’s fiscal 2022 research, development, test and evaluation funds to cover the full obligated amount.
