CFDRC’s software and expertise pioneered coupled multiscale, multiphysics simulations of fluid, thermal, chemical, biological, electrical, and mechanical phenomena for real-world applications. Such simulations provide clearer insights into complex systems and thus enable Better Decisions and facilitate Better Products with lower risk, reduced cost, and less time.

CFDRC’s success stems from the Strong Synergy between:

  • R&D projects (funded mostly by Government agencies).
  • Adaptation and Commercialization of developed technologies with industry partners.
  • Engineering services for technology insertions and on-site and off-site support for DoD, NASA and other programs of national interest.

CFDRC has grown steadily and profitably every year since its inception in 1987. We are a two-time winner (1996 and 2006) of the prestigious Tibbetts Award for innovation. CFDRC has also won the Army National Achievement Award twice (in 2008 and 2010) for excellence in the SBIR program, and we maintain an excellent (≥ 80%) DoD Commercialization Achievement Index (CAI) score. One of our significant commercialization success was the spin off of the CFDRC software products division along with 45 employees in 2004.

Presently, CFDRC has a highly qualified staff (55% PhDs) of over 90 employees, and active collaborations with numerous research organizations. We have been cited in the success stories of NASA, Navy, Air Force, DARPA, NIH and NSF; and are commended by industry partners for impacts made on their businesses. Our projects address challenging problems of national importance, e.g. Chem-Bio Protection, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Alternative Energy Sources, Low Emissions, Space Launch Systems and Missile Propulsion.

CFDRC, a minority-owned Small Business, remains Committed to Growth, by continuing to work closely with its customers in their quests of developing better products and safer systems. View Less
