  3. H5.02: Hot Structure Technology for Aerospace Vehicles

    Release Date: 02-05-2019Open Date: 02-05-2019Due Date: 03-29-2019Close Date: 03-29-2019

    This subtopic encompasses the development of reusable, hot structure technology for structural components exposed to extreme aerodynamic heating environments on aerospace vehicles. A hot structure system is a multifunctional structure that can reduce or eliminate the need for a separate thermal protection system (TPS). The potential advantages of using a hot structure system in place of a TPS with ...

  4. Z7.01: Entry Descent & Landing Sensors for Environment Characterization, Vehicle Performance, and Guidance, Navigation and Control

    Release Date: 02-05-2019Open Date: 02-05-2019Due Date: 03-29-2019Close Date: 03-29-2019

    NASA manned and robotic missions to the surface of planetary or airless bodies require Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL). For many of these missions, EDL represents one of the riskiest phases of the mission. Despite the criticality of the EDL phase, NASA has historically gathered limited engineering data from such missions, and use of the data for real-time Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN&C) ...

  5. Z7.03: Deployable Aerodynamic Decelerator and Weave Diagnostic Technology

    Release Date: 02-05-2019Open Date: 02-05-2019Due Date: 03-29-2019Close Date: 03-29-2019

    NASA is advancing deployable aerodynamic decelerators to enhance and enable robotic and human space missions. The benefit of deployable decelerators is that the entry vehicle structure and thermal protection system (TPS) is not constrained by the launch vehicle shroud. It has the flexibility to more efficiently use the available shroud volume and can be accommodated within a smaller volume for Ear ...
