The Aerodynamics Group at Orbital Research, Inc. is active in a wide variety of research and engineering efforts that are focused on the design and development of advanced Active Flow Control systems for aircraft and missiles. ORI employs state-of-the-art solutions utilizing exploratory wind tunnel experiments coupled with high-fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations to advance through the concept-to-development stages in a very time and cost-efficient manner. Since its inception in 1992, ORI has a proven excellent track record of successful research programs funded by U.S. government agencies, including Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA), Army, Air Force, and Special Operations Command (SOCOM). ORI has also been collaborating with large aerospace corporations for specific R&D programs.
