Abstract
Corvid Technologies is pleased to offer this SBIR Phase II proposal. In the proposed effort, we will extend the high-fidelity analysis processes demonstrated during Phase I to generate large-scale, production-quality databases for intercept debris fragments. Our approach utilizes an innovative combination of high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics for a broad range of flow conditions, high-performance computing resources, and advanced solution-automation processes. Using this first-principles-based methodology, we will develop a framework to generate high-fidelity databases of fragment aerodynamic properties for use in established debris propagation models. The Phase II program will demonstrate the accuracy of the computational approach, as well as the capability to generate large-scale databases in a rapid manner.
