AeroSoft, with the USAFA Laser and Optics Research Center proposes to create an extensive and thorough Verification and Validation (V&V) Program for anchoring physics based modeling software for static and flowing DPAL systems. During Phase I, a review of existing experimental programs will made and used for preliminary validation with the GASP software suite. Once deficiencies in the current experimental programs as applied to V&V, a rigorous test plan will be constructed for execution in Phase II.
