Modeling and Simulation

CNI acquired Corvid Technologies, LLC in 2015. Corvid is a highly specialized engineering company that provides the services listed below. For more information, please visit

HFCP Solver Development

Develop high-fidelity computational physics solvers that investigate high-rate physics phenomena. Corvid's proprietary solvers are proven to be accurate and predictive, and licenses are available for sale.

Fluid Dynamics

Utilize our proprietary Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver to accurately predict aerodynamic effects in all Mach regimes and create virtual design environments.

Structural Mechanics

Utilize our internally-developed multi-physics hydro-structural solver to accurately predict the behavior of complex structures when exposed to high rate or extreme loading conditions.

Shock Physics

Utilize our proprietary multi-physics hydro-structural solver to predict what happens to matter (gas, liquid, or solid) under extreme loading conditions.

Blast & Ballistics

Utilize our analysis tools, prototyping, and experimental capabilities to evaluate the effects of blast loading and ballistics to assets and personnel.


Develop and apply proprietary high-fidelity human models, including tissue characterization, to predict the outcomes of extreme loading events on the human anatomy.

Test & Evaluation

Perform Test and Evaluation assessments of weapon systems and components; conduct fundamental research and experimentation.


Leverage internally developed computational analysis tools to optimize design earlier than the standard build and test paradigm to improve efficiency, reduce the design cycle, and develop optimized solutions for complex problems.

System Design & Integration

By leveraging physics based computational analysis early in the design phase of a program, Corvid is able to bring out successful System Design/Integration earlier in the design cycle and at a significantly reduced cost.

Instrumentation & Sensors

Design and utilize advanced instrumentation and sensors for complex data acquisition from tests and experiments, frequently in hostile environments.

Styling & Surfacing

In-house design department produces original Class A (Curvature Continuous) CAD surfaces from concept sketches or scan data.

Warhead Design

Leverage expertise in shock physics and weapons effectiveness to design, develop, and test focused warheads for increased lethality and lower collateral damage.

Range Safety

Corvid leverages our extensive computational analysis capabilities along with our on-range support to ensure tests can be executed safely, on-time, and on-budget for a variety of test ranges for the DoD.

Signatures & Sensor Modeling

First principle and high-fidelity modeling to generate Radar Cross Section (RCS) and Electro-Optical Infrared (EO/IR) signatures. Advanced sensor modeling produces synthetic sensor responses for both radar and EO/IR systems. Facilitates analysis of system performance.

Manufacturing & 3D Printing

Utilize in-house advanced technologies to design, develop, and manufacture one-off and prototype builds for test and evaluation programs.


Corvid maintains a massively parallel supercomputer system with 24,000 CPUs, a ballistics and mechanics lab, and a prototype manufacturing plant.
