  1. High-Fidelity Prediction of Launch Vehicle Lift-off Acoustic Environment

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: T101

    Launch vehicles experience extreme acoustic loads during liftoff driven by the interaction of rocket plumes and plume-generated acoustic waves with ground structures. Currently employed predictive capabilities are too dissipative to accurately resolve the propagation of waves throughout the launch environment. Higher fidelity non-dissipative analysis tools are critically needed to design mitigatio ...

  2. Particle Flow Physics Modeling for Extreme Environments

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: T403

    The liberation of particles induced by rocket plume flow from spacecraft landing on unprepared regolith of the Moon, Mars, and other destinations poses high mission risks for robotic and human exploration activities. This process occurs in a combination of "extreme environments" that combine low gravity, little or no atmosphere, rocket exhaust gas flow that is supersonic and partially rarefied, an ...

  3. Compact Sensor for Isotope and Trace Gas Analysis

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: T801

    We propose to develop and demonstrate a new sensor platform for isotope and trace-gas analysis that is appropriate for future planetary missions. Among other applications, the technology can enable the collection of isotope ratio data in support of the search for evidence of life within the solar system. Current limitations to in-situ isotope measurements will be overcome by utilizing a capillar ...
