Analysis Modeling and Programming Sciences, Inc.
(AMPS) was incorporated in California, USA on August 17, 1999. Operating
as a small business, AMPS offers structural analysis, design and
programming services for the aviation industry. We are structured and
managed to provide maximum program cost effectiveness.
AMPS received its
NAVSEA Seaport-e contract award on 31 May 2005.
Our mission is to provide the most cost effective,
value oriented and customer responsive organization possible.
Highly motivated, knowledgeable, experienced and
proven staff, in combination with internally generated procedures produce
accurate, thorough and cost effective solutions, with exceptionally rapid
Our analysis and design capabilities cover many
aspects, including finite element analysis, fatigue analysis and dynamic
analysis. Our experience encompasses a wide variety of space, missiles,
military and civilian aircraft, primary and secondary structures, for
both composites and metallic. We also provide training to client
Our programming services include software design and
deployment for analysis, project management and databases.
Individually our staff members have at least 20 years
of direct aerospace experience and many have advanced degrees.
Tracking project status and content continuously,
ensures punctual achievement of project target objectives. Regular status
reports are generated as required for progress meetings. A high quality
of work and documentation is maintained by a formal peer review system.
The customer is encouraged to participate in the quality control cycle.
experience relevant to the USN
AMPS has participated in all aspects of structural
analysis functions at North Island since 1999. This included the
initiation of the first improvements to the F/A-18 finite element design
model outside of the OEM and the planning and implementation of other
major programs such as SLAP and CBR+. As such AMPS has a cooperate
knowledge of the structural history, analysis methods, documentation,
specifications and FST practices that are specific to the F/A-18 that is
not generally available to other contractors.
AMPS was solely
responsible for the design and development of the entire fine mesh models
developed specifically for the SLAP Phase 1 program.
AMPS has also developed a
number of tools specific to the F/A-18 program that enhances the
productivity of its engineers and will be used to support the SLEP
effort. One such tool is FatAllow that
simplifies the execution of OEM codes SPECGEN and CI89. AMPS, Inc. is
able to insert alternate models and spectra into these codes. This
ability is particularly important to the support of FMS aircraft. Another
example is software developed by AMPS, Inc. for computing stress
concentrations in accordance with F/A-18 procedures, an important
component of all fatigue analyses. This software ensures compliance with
Program Standards and enhances productivity of the analyst.
AMPS has been at the forefront of program management database generation
for several large engineering projects for the F/A-18 FST. This includes
task like tracking database, earned value project performance metrics,
and FT01 teardown database in support of aircraft life assessment.
