The proceedings of the Retardation and Recovery Symposium sponsored by the Aeronautical Systems Division on 13 and 14 November 1962 are presented. The introductory session reviewed the use and applications of deployable aerodynamic decelerators throughout the past fifty years and noted the areas in which additional work had to be accomplished. The four technical sessions deal with the latest significant developments in the retardation and recovery area. The technical sessions begin with presentations and discussions of investigations in the hypersonic and supersonic flow phenomena. In addition, new aerodynamic decelerator designs and discussion of the wind tunnel tests pertaining to these designs, as well as overall reliability of recovery systems, are presented. The final technical session concludes with a discussion of the military, scientific, and general objectives for decelerators intended for future use.
