The US Army Natick Soldier Center (NSC) is teamed with the Joint Forces Command (JFCOM), US Air Force Air Mobility Command (USAF AMC), the US Army Project Manager Force Sustainment and Support (PM-FSS), and under the oversight of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Advance Systems and Concepts (AS&C) office, along with numerous other government(More)
A parallel computational technique is presented for carrying out three-dimensional simulations of parachute  uid-structure interactions, and this technique is applied to simulations of airdrop performance and control phenomena in terminal descent. The technique uses a stabilized space-time formulation of the time-dependent, three-dimensionalNavier–Stokes(More)
39 The development of computational models that predict the aerodynamic performance of parachute systems has significantly enhanced the technology of airdrop systems by providing alternatives to or complementing drop tests and laboratory experiments. Increases in the scope and reliability of computational modeling are bringing current technology closer to(More)
The U.S. Army Natick Soldier Center (NSC) is the lead agency for most U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) airdrop programs and is teamed with numerous DoD organizations and contractors to plan and execute numerous Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS) efforts to include an Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD). The JPADS ACTD is integrating a(More)
