The U.S. Department of Energy Awards Intelligent Light $1 Million Phase II SBIR Grant to Commercialize VisIt Open Source Software.

The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded Intelligent Light $1 Million Phase II grant to commercialize the VisIt open source software.  Intelligent Light has begun integrating FieldView™ its flagship CFD post processing software with VisIt, the open source interactive parallel visualization and graphical analysis tool from the U.S. Department of Energy.

“DOE has made significant investment over the years in the development of VisIt, a robust, scalable visualization and analysis tool for the processing of very large data sets, running on the largest high performance computing resources. As a tool that supports the very broad science mission of DOE, VisIt has been designed as a flexible, generalized solution to the visualization and analysis of scientific data.  Awards such as this through the SBIR program are a very positive step making this technology more broadly available to specific scientific areas through a re-packaging in a domain specific way, and broadening the user base and community of this DOE investment.”  David Pugmire, Scientist, Visualization Task Leader, Climate Change Science Institute, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
