Abstract
Corvid Technologies is excited to offer a unique solution for protecting tactical vehicles during high-speed external transport. The innovative design employs a fabric net structure rigged to the vehicle which significantly reduces the impeding air velocity on critical components. This approach provides the necessary protection with minimal impact to installation time, complexity, portability, and cost. The goals of Phase II include supporting prototype development, testing and evaluation, and supporting computational analyses. Small scale testing will be explored to further validate the computational analyses conducted during the Phase I effort. Near the end of the Phase II effort, Corvid will provide engineering support for a flight test mission on an HMMWV equipped with the AeroNet.
