Title: Energy Deposition to Sculpt Upstream Densities and Control Common Aerovehicle, Strongly Reducing Drag and Ablation
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA8650-07-M-3737
Award Amount: $99,986.00
 

Abstract:

A versatile technique will be applied to preferentially reduce drag on different CAV designs, serving as an innovative approach to control effectors. Once air is accelerated by a high speed vehicle, strong drag forces are generated which must be countered by control surfaces. This requires tremendous actuator force and ablation resistance by the surfaces. Our approach will control the distribution of air ahead of the vehicle, to not only minimize the drag and ablation experienced by the CAV, but also to ensure that the drag forces steer the body as desired. This application allows additional embodiments, including total drag-reduction and munition deployment that can be explored in follow-on phases.
