Abstract
HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR THREATS GENERALLY REQUIRE THE USE OF OVERLAYS/UNDERLAYS TO ACHIEVE THE NUCLEAR SURVIVABILITY REQUIREMENTS OF ADVANCED REENTRY VEHICLES (RVS). MATERIALS AND FABRICATION PROCESSES EXIST THAT WITH SOME MINOR VARIATIONS SHOULD PRODUCE A HEATSHIELD MATERIAL THAT CAN EITHER ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR, OR REDUCE THE REQUIREMENTS OF, OVERLAYS/UNDERLAYS. THE PROPOSED MATERIAL, RELATIVE TO CURRENT AIR FORCE AND NAVY RV HEATSHIELDS, WILL: A) REDUCE IMPULSE AND HOT X-RAY SHINE-THROUGH, B) INCREASE ABLATION/EROSION RESISTANCE AND STRENGTH AND C) MAINTAIN EQUIVALENT THERMAL INSULATION PROPERTIES.
