ASTRA will build on its COTS-based, passive optical CubeSat payload designs to investigate technologies to provide detection capabilities of hypersonic gliders. Hypersonic glider characteristics will be provided by our partners in the Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of Colorado at Boulder. This Phase I effort will use the modeled temperature characteristics of the gliders and the areal extent of the increased temperatures and match it with COTS hardware to provide detection capabilities during the glide phase of the flight.
