Project Description

Nano-ADEPT Lifting: Design Development for a Lifting Flight Test Demonstration
ADEPT 'umbrella' structure utilizing carbon fabric serving as both primary structure and thermal protection can be designed with ribs of different lengths and deployment angles to achieve a lifting,'raked-conic'shape. The lifting Nano-ADEPT design approach to be relevant to Mars Exploration stakeholders will require an approach that is readily scalable to large (>10m diameter) decelerators. Deliverables: 1) Lifting Nano-ADEPT Flight test proposal; 2) Full scale demonstration model More »
