Abstract
ADVANCED REENTRY SYSTEM SIMULATIONS NEED COMPREHENSIVE FLOW FIELD PLASMA, AEROTHERMAL ANTENNA WINDOW HEATING AND ABLATION, AND REENTRY ANTENNA PREDICTION CAPABILITIES. THE ON-BOARD ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) SENSORS AND COHERENT SIGNAL PROCESSING ARE DEGRADED BY THE HOT ABLATING ANTENNA WINDOW AND PROPAGATION THROUGH THE PLASMA ENVIRONMENT. THE PROPOSED PHASE I RESEARCH WILL DETERMINE IF EXISTING STATE OF THE ART CODES CAN BE INTEGRATED TOGETHER INTO AN INTERACTIVE SET OF FLOW FIELD/AEROTHERMAL/ANTENNA ANALYSES WHICH COULD BE DIRECTLY COUPLED INTO EXISTING HI-FEDELITY - SIX-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM (6DOF) TERMINAL GUIDANCE OR RADAR HOMING SIMULATIONS. THE RESEARCH WILL DETERMINE THE INTEGRATION ARCHITECTURE, EXPECTED CODE PERFORMANCE (TIME AND ACCURACY), A SET OF TEST CALCULATIONS, AND MODULE SOFTWARE SPECIFICATION.
