About Us

Technology, Teamwork, Trust

For decades Intelligent Light has been at the forefront of CFD, visualization, high performance computing and data science.

We developed FieldView, the global market leading analysis and visualization tool for large scale CFD. We commercialized VisIt, the U.S. Department of Energy’s open source visualization software. We assembled a team of leading domain experts to conduct research that advanced the needs of our clients: from NASA and JAXA to Boeing, GE, Sikorsky, Ford, Rolls Royce and a host of top Formula One teams among many others.

A Message From Our President

In my journey as the founder and leader of Intelligent Light, I have had the privilege of meeting some of the pioneers of CFD through our visualization and knowledge-extraction software products. These visionaries freely shared their valuable time, answering my naïve questions and helping me to understand their field and how our tools might help the CFD community. In the late 1980s, United Technologies Research Center used our 3DV software to produce animations of CFD results by converting them into formats that could be rendered and recorded to video tape. Thus began my adventure and a great opportunity for Intelligent Light through our FieldView software, which has helped countless engineers visualize and analyze CFD simulations.

As powerful as the FieldView tool remains under its new owner, FieldView CFD Inc., much innovation remains ahead to fully tap the potential of applying the various formulations of fluid flow models to design and improve so many of the products that we rely on today.  Intelligent Light today has moved on to help you and your organization take advantage of the power of HPC, with compressed, efficient workflows and state-of-the-art risk reduction via VV and UQ.  We look forward to building on our relationship with the community, built upon Technology, Teamwork and Trust.
