PIC Code Software

Northrop Grumman offers two software suites: LSP and MAGIC. LSP is 3D electromagnetic PIC (particle-in-cell) code designed for large scale plasma simulations such as E-beam driven radiography, pulsed power accelerator design, heavy-ion fusion and petawatt laser-interaction. MAGIC is capable of designing and refining a wide range of electromagnetic devices. LSP…

PMD Tanks

Propellant Management Device (PMD) tanks are used in mono- and bi-propellant systems for the control of fluid and separation of the pressurant gas from the fuel or oxidizer to provide gas-free propellant to the thrusters through the spacecraft life. Northrop Grumman presently manufactures PMD tanks with over 100,000 cubic inches…
