Abstract
Corvid Technologies is pleased to offer this SBIR Phase I proposal. In the proposed effort, we will develop a fast-running, predictive methodology for the aerothermal demise of the debris generated during a Ballistic Missile Defense intercept event. This model will be informed by existing high-fidelity tools for material response and ablation, as well as new and existing engineering models for aerodynamic heating, and validated through comparisons to available test data. The resultant model will be developed for and integrated into existing fast-running models for post-intercept debris trajectories.
