Going beyond convention.

Effective design and engineering for complex phenomena requires precise modeling of the ignition, combustion and performance of nanoenergetic particles, including those found in rocket engines and air-breathing propulsion systems. When interactions are understood and predicted, new possibilities result, allowing you to stay ahead of the competition and at the cutting edge.

To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction.
— Sir Isaac Newton

We study interactions. Complex phenomena like void collapse, fluid dynamics, combustion, shock-to-detonation and subsonic crossflow occur not just in the research laboratory, but also in real-world applications. Learn More >
