The ability of a missile to operate during adverse weather and rain conditions is limited and may result in extensive nose cone damage and seeker dome fracturing. It is imperative that missile developers understand rain droplet impact on missile nose cones and seeker domes to optimize their shape and materials to better withstand rain impact. Our technology is a fully validated Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software tool to predict raindrop distortion and demise in the flow field around a supersonic missile to understand the impact event and the associated material damage mechanisms. CFD Research Corporation specializes in development of CFD software of complex multi-physics phenomena, and our goal is to transition this software to DoD agencies and primes for missile weather encounter modeling.
Platelet products play an important role in treatment of hemorrhage patients. However, platelet products are unavailable at forward surgical facilities (Role 2) due to their short shelf life (3-5 days). CFD Research’s platelet apheresis platform will allow for collection of fresh leukocyte-reduced platelet products in expeditionary settings. The ruggedized system will enable Role 2 teams to utilize freshly donated platelets to broaden treatment options and improve outcomes for combat casualties. Proof-of-concept for the system has been established. Development of integrated prototype for field testing is ongoing. CFD Research develops cutting edge technologies and provides innovative solutions for Aerospace, Biomedical and other industries and has extensive experience in the development of biomedical devices. Our goal is to transition the technology into Role 2 surgical teams.
No current standard human surrogate exists that focuses on non-lethal weapon (NLW) exposures; however CFD Research Corporation’s (CFDRC’s) modular human surrogate will solve that problem. The modular human surrogate is capable of measuring a wide variety of stimuli produced by NLWs to gauge performance, safety, and risk of significant injury (RSI) of NLWs. This system’s modular focus enables adaptability to current/future technologies with relatively small changes, low cost, and state-of-the-art sensors. The system has been prototyped and functionality verified for many NLW stimuli. CFDRC specializes in creating unique and valuable solutions to problems related to human body response and performance. Our goal is to transition this surrogate into government/prime contractors/developers of NLWs to become the testing standard used for demonstrating/evaluating human response and RSI due to NLWs.
