  9. Innovative Weight Efficient Combined Structural/Thermal Protection System (TPS) Concepts

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04248

    The current approach to providing thermal protection to aero-vehicles is to use a parasitic thermal protection system (TPS) that protects the primary structure while transferring the aerodynamic loads to the same primary structure. This approach increases the complexity of the vehicle system that, in turn, complicates fabrication and inspection of the structure. In addition, this approach also i ...
