Abstract:

The development of a high-temperature, nuclearradiation-resistant pneumatic power system for flight vehicles is considered. Future flight vehicles will be subjected to extreme thermal environments because of heat generated by supersonic speeds andor the propulsion systems. This results in new requirements for components and auxiliary systems. It is, therefore contemplated to design, develop and test a typical pneumatic system capable of operating under wide temperature excursions while in the presence of nuclear radiation. Author
