As a scientific research, not-for-profit corporation, CUBRC’s mission is to combine innovative ideas and state-of-the-art technologies to help solve some of our nation’s most critical and challenging problems in Aerosciences, Chemical Biological Defense, and Information Exploitation.  The cornerstone of the CUBRC Aerosciences’ experimental research and testing capability are the Large Energy National Shock (LENS) “tunnel” facilities. LENS is comprised of four separate test tunnels, along with their associated instrumentation and data recording and analysis capabilities. These facilities have been built on over 50 years of experience in creating and refining the performance of both shock and expansion tunnels. These world-class facilities represent a unique national resource used to solve many of the most challenging problems associated with the flight of high-speed vehicles traveling through both Earth and planetary atmospheres. Each individual LENS tunnel was designed and constructed by CUBRC to focus on the major supersonic and hypersonic flow regimes where aero-thermal, aero-optical and propulsion research and testing are required to develop advanced high-speed aerospace systems.

EMPI is an employee owned company founded for the purpose of developing and commercializing advanced energetic formulations and products enabled by recent advances in metal-based energetic materials. Our novel energetic materials are designed to provide significant performance and functionality gains for applications where tunable, high-mass and high-energy density energetic materials with desirable IM and environmental characteristics are required. EMPI has developed a new class of explosive materials, which have higher energy densities and use the power of nanoenergetics to tailor explosive energy release in space and time in ways that conventional, organic explosives cannot. EMPI has also developed a new class of tunable reactive materials (RM) based on nanometer and micrometer length-scale metals and special metal and organic oxidizers that are more versatile than conventional reactive materials. The Green Energetics market is driven by the need for environmentally friendly and safer solutions to replace lead and perchlorate based compounds for commercial and defense applications. Green solutions are highly sought for pyrotechnics and primary explosives as well as electric igniters and primers replacing existing materials which pose severe environmental hazards beginning with the manufacturing process through end use applications.
