HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – CFD Research Corporation has been awarded 16 contracts totaling approximately $6 million in new research and development work for the Huntsville company.
The Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contracts by organizations within the U.S. Department of Defense were awarded during the first quarter of fiscal 2014. All contract work is taking place in CFDRC’s offices and labs at HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Huntsville and in Scottsboro.
The company will work to understand complex physical phenomena related to defense systems, protecting soldiers, reducing risks, propulsion coupling effects and combustion systems. Advanced technologies under development include energetic materials, batteries, divert attitude control systems, projectile dynamics, advanced data processing, and protein manufacturing for bio-defense applications.
“We are very excited to be working with DoD to provide leading edge research and development expertise to protect our warfighters, enable next generation defense developments and support new understandings of complex technology challenges,” said CFDRC President and CEO Joseph M. Cosumano Jr.
Last fall, CFDRC launched a new headquarters along McMillian Park at HudsonAlpha. The company was the first to occupy the new 88,000-square-foot HudsonAlpha facility that broke ground in June 2011.
