SDMA proposes to develop a flexible fabric containing Phase Change Materials that is suitable for use on Deployable Decelerators. This technology will make Deployable Decelerators substantially more efficient. Previous work at NASA has shown that increasing the thermal capacitance of the structure can make hypersonic vehicles more efficient. SDMA's work will build on NASA's previous efforts by developing practical methods of containing PCM's in a flexible system that withstands the thermal and mechanical mission requirements.
