Novel Spider 3D Woven Seamless ADEPT Aero-Shell, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Bally Ribbon Mills will demonstrate the proposed novel weaving technique and produce a one-piece spider weave for the ADEPT aero-shell. NASA AMES has been working with Bally Ribbon Mills for several years on the Adaptable Deployable Entry and Placement Technology (ADEPT). To date the ADEPT test articles have been made with 3D woven flat broad cloth which is cut and sewn into the desired shape. BRM will use current equipment to demonstrate that a scaled down (or Sprite C sized) spider weave aero shell is feasible. More »
