  3. Multi-Physics Models for Parachute Deployment and Braking for Coupling with DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT004

    Design analysis of parachute recovery systems has relied on a combination of core design principles, historical empirical data, and extensive testing for decades. Parachute motion involves complex phenomena involving porous bluff-body aerodynamics and highly deformable cloth. The proposed project is a plugin for the DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel simulation suite that will enable high-fidelity simulations ...

  6. Volumetric Wavefront Sensing for the Characterization of Distributed-Volume Aberrations

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Modern Directed Energy (DE) missions require target engagements at low elevation angles and long ranges.These engagement geometries require propagation through distributed-volume turbulence. To correct for distributed-volume turbulence effects, an estimation of the turbulence along the propagation path is required. Correcting for these image aberrations will improve the quality of the target image ...
