Abstract:

NEW REENTRY VEHICLE CONCEPTS UNDER DEVELOPMENT BY THE AIR FORCE HAVE ANTENNA WINDOW REQUIREMENTS THAT PUSH THE LIMITS OF CURRENT DESIGN TECHNOLOGY. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO INVESTIGATE MATERIALS AND DESIGN OPTIONS DEVELOPED TO MEET ADVANCED REENTRY SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS WITHOUT COMPROMISING VEHICLE INTEGRITY OR EFFECTIVENESS. CURRENT AND FUTURE ANTENNA WINDOW SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS WILL BE DEFINED. MATERIAL AND DESIGN CONCEPTS WILL BE SELECTED FOR TRADE-OFF COMPARISONS FOR USE ON SPECIFIED RV SYSTEMS. GROUND TESTS WILL BE DEFINED TO IDENTIFY MATERIAL AND DESIGN REQUIREMENTS FOR CURRENT REENTRY SCENARIOS. AEROTHERMAL AND STRUCTURAL RESPONSE CAPABILITIES WILL BE RECOMMENDED. THIS PROGRAM WILL EMPHASIZE ANTENNA WINDOW DESIGN OPTIONS BASED ON NEW MATERIALS AND NEW DESIGN CONCEPTS USING ADVANCED TEST METHODS AND ANALYTICAL METHOD ENHANCEMENTS.
