Illinois Rocstar LLC (IR) specializes in making complex modeling and simulation (M&S) software easy to use, constructing specialized M&S tools, and crafting automated simulation workflows. IR weaponeering involves development of high-fidelity targeting scenario models, automated meshing, automated simulation workflow management, post-processing, and feedback loop development. Ongoing projects for several U.S. Government agencies provide simplified M&S workflow for warfighters and designers with rapid, accurate, and validated tools. IR operates across the spectrum of engineering M&S, integrating new technologies into user-friendly, predictive products. Rocpack provides dense material packing models of particulates, crystals, rocks and earth applicable to high-fidelity battlefield simulations. NEMoSys enables turnkey solutions to complex meshing problems such as targeting scenarios and lethality simulations for civil and military construction, and for maritime structures. RocLB simulates chemical transport through polymer microstructures of solid rocket motor propellants. Packflow, enables explicit modeling of microstructure effects in complex flow domains. Illinois Rocstar was founded in 2007 as a science-based simulation company in Champaign, Illinois. IR was established to implement and commercialize Rocstar, a multiphysics/multiscale software package that simulates behavior of solid propellant rockets. Today we build software products that couple disparate physics-based M&S tools and support specialized industrial and weaponeering applications.
