T0054-B Stratospheric Parabolic Flight Technology

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

T0054-B Stratospheric Parabolic Flight Technology

Proposed as a solution to the limitations of parabolic aircraft flight testing (residual acceleration environment resulting from g-jitter from atmospheres and engines; limited parabola duration by the vertical component of the flight velocity at beginning of parabola), a three-flight program has been devised. This program aims to develop stratospheric ultra-smooth parabolic flight capabilities of the High Altitude Shuttle System (HASS) of Near Space Corporation (NSC) and demonstrate the suitability of the stratospheric gliding parabolic flights for technology advancement and knowledge experimentation.
