  3. Development and Validation of a Computational Tool for Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N182110

    The survivability of tactical missiles through adverse weather is difficult to predict, because of the dependency on many variables and the unpredictable nature of weather. This proposal is focused on an effort to develop and test a physics-based methodology for the prediction of the droplet distortion and demise in the flow field around missiles in supersonic flight. Our technical approach of Pha ...

  4. Computational Analysis of Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: Integration Innovation, Inc.            Topic: N182110

    The current state of weather requirements definition for tactical missiles is outdated providing operational decision makers little confidence in the performance of missiles in any environment other than blue-sky. The challenge is understanding detailed physics features like drop shape change through a shock, and then being able to apply those at the system level for vehicle performance assessment ...

  7. High Operating Temperature Broadband Detectors for Weapon Targeting and IR Seekers

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: N191039

    EPIR proposes to design, fabricate and deliver to US Navy broadband high operating temperature detectors and focal plane arrays (FPAs) operating at mid-wavelength-infrared (MWIR) wavelengths. To meet the response time, high frame rate, low noise and high detectivity requirements, the detectors and the FPAs will be designed to work under non-equilibrium and dark current suppression conditions. Incr ...

  10. A Hierarchical and Extendable, Component-Based Simulation Tool for Aircraft Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N19BT025

    The requirements for thermal management on tactical aircraft systems have reached a level at which integrated system design must be considered early in the aircraft design process. An integrated propulsion, power and thermal modeling and simulation design approach is necessary for reduced size, weight and power requirements. At the same time, there is an urgent need for capabilities that enable an ...
