Abstract
FOR CERTAIN AIR FORCE ADVANCED REENTRY APPLICATIONS, ANTENNA WINDOW PERFORMANCE HAS A CRITICAL ROLE IN DICTATING OVERALL SYSTEM EFFECTIVENESS. TO AID IN THE CHARACTERIZATION OF ANTENNA WINDOW PERFORMANCE, REENTRY DATA ARE NEEDED IN THE AREAS OF ABLATION, THERMAL, STRUCTURAL AND ELECTRICAL RESPONSE. IN THE PROPOSED PROGRAM, THREE INSTRUMENTATION CONCEPTS WILL BE DESIGNED TO SUPPORT THE ACQUISITION OF PERFORMANCE DATA IN THESE AREAS. LABORATORY TESTS WILL BE CONDUCTED ON TWO ABLATION SENSORS TO DETERMINE FEASIBILITY. DEMONSTRATION TESTS WILL BE PERFORMED ON A PROPOSED SENSOR THAT MEASURES BOTH ABLATION AND TEMPERATURE RESPONSE.
