Award List:

Advanced Computational Tools for Jet Interaction Phenomena

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Rex Chamberlin
Award Amount: $59,976.00
Abstract:
In order to develop faster, lighter, more maneuverable, and more accurate defense interceptors, jet interaction (JI) aerodynamic controls are being pursued to achieve highly effective control authority across large portions of the battlespace. The reliable use of JI to control a kill vehicle (KV)… More
