TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
M4 Engineering proposes to develop methods and software to generate reduced order nonlinear models of dynamic aeroserovelastic systems. The reduced order models will be based on a hybrid NARMAX-Wavelet model, in which the basic linear behavior and gentle nonlinearities in the dynamics are captured by a Nonlinear AutoRegressive, Moving Average with eXogenous inputs (NARMAX) model with polynomial behavior, and harsh nonlinearities that result localized discontinuities or transitions are captured with a Wavelet network. This approach will allow the system to capture the range of nonlinear dynamics encountered in complex DASE systems with very efficient models suitable for use early in the design cycle.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Potential NASA applications will include the use of the developed technology for design of any new generation aircraft or RLV system including complex nonlinear DASE behavior, including HALE vehicles, transonic vehicles, truss-braced wing configurations, low-boom supersonic configurations, etc.

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
This technology is expected to have commercial applications to aircraft design of subsonic transports, supersonic vehicles, bombers, fighters, UAV's, and general aviation airplanes. As such, it is expected to have significant commercial applications in airplane structural design, primarily with DoD, NASA, and the prime contractors.
