Adaptive Deployable Entry and Placement Technology (ADEPT)/SR-1

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Project will test a deployment maneuver via a Sounding Rocket (Mach 3) flight test to achieve TRL 5-6 for 1m class ADEPT for a small-scale payload or technology demonstration opportunity at Mars or another destination. This flight test will establish basic feasibility of the concept, as the foundation for guided, large-scale vehicles that could be used to deliver payloads for future human Mars missions. The project will perform system level testing in Arcjets and Sounding Rocket using common configuration More »
