Deployable Entry-system Project (ADEPT)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The Deployable Entry-system ProjecT (ADEPT) primary objective of this effort is to develop an alternative approach to atmospheric entry that is appropriate for future missions.

The Deployable Entry-system ProjecT (ADEPT) will develop requirements for the ADEPT flight test.  Prior entry systems used high mass thermal protection systems.  This project is focused on increasing the TRL of an alternative, deployable entry system that is appropriate for medium size planetary missions.
