  1. Multiphase Modeling of Solid Rocket Motor Internal Environment

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T1

    Solid rocket motor (SRM) design requires detailed understanding of the slag accumulation process in order to: predict thrust continuity, optimize propellant conversion efficiency, predict coning effects from sloshing, and to assess potential orbital debris (slag) hazard. Current state-of-the-art models for SRM environment do not have the capability to simulate the accumulation and dynamics of slag ...

  2. Transient Acoustic Environment Prediction Tool for Launch Vehicles in Motion During Early Lift-Off

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T1

    Launch vehicles experience extreme acoustic loads dominated by rocket plume interactions with ground structures during liftoff, which can produce damaging vibro-acoustic loads on the vehicle and payloads if not properly understood and mitigated against. Existing capabilities for modeling turbulent plume physics are too dissipative to accurately resolve the acoustic propagation and detailed vehicle ...

  3. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: MAPP BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: CBD18A002

    There are currently no vaccines or therapeutics available for Marburg Virus Disease (MVD). Given the specter of weaponization and the terriblemorbidity and high mortality rate of MVD, this represents a critical threat to the operational readiness of the Warfighter. While traditionalvaccines have proven to be a huge contribution to public health, they do have some limitations especially in the cont ...

  5. Demonstration of Autonomous Differential Throttle-based Flight Control for Aircraft with Distributed Electric Propulsion

    SBC: Empirical Systems Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: T15

    A series of RDT&E activities is proposed to create and demonstrate a reconfigurable, autonomous flight controller for the Aircraft for Distributed Electric Propulsion Throttle-based Flight Control (ADEPT-FC) which was designed and built in Phase I, a 33 lb remote controlled aircraft featuring eight overwing electric ducted fans (EDFs) distributed spanwise along the wing’s trailing edge. The prop ...

  8. Novel Circulating RNA-based Markers as Diagnostic Biomarkers of Infectious Diseases

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD18A001

    In resource limited settings, rapid and accurate diagnosis of infections is critical for managing potential exposures to highly virulent pathogens,whether occurring from an act of bioterrorism or a natural event. This is especially important for hard to detect intracellular bacterial andalphavirus infections, that overlap symptomatically and often treated empirically due to a lack of reliable and ...

  10. Prediction of Plume Induced Rock Fracture for Landers

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T9

    The landing surface damage and liberation of debris particles caused by rocket plume impingement flow during spacecraft propulsive landing on unprepared surfaces of Moon, Mars, and other celestial bodies poses a high risk for robotic and human exploration activities. Simply determining whether the plume induced loads exceed the bedrock bearing capacity threshold is not sufficient. An integrated m ...
