Abstract
THE PURPOSE OF THE PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP AN IMPROVED AEROSHELL DESIGN FOR STRATEGIC REENTRY VEHICLES. THE IMPROVED DESIGN USES A HIGH STRENGTH HEATSHIELD MATERIAL THAT CAN ALSO PROVIDE A STRUCTURAL ROLE IN THE AEROSHELL. ANALYSES AND GROUND TESTS SHOW THAT THE MATERIAL HAS EQUIVALENT THERMAL PERFORMANCE AS CURRENT CARBON PHENOLIC HEATSHIELDS, HAS IMPROVED STRENGTH OVER CURRENT AEROSHELL DESIGNS AND RESULTS IN AEROSHELL WEIGHT REDUCTIONS OF OVER 20%.
