Abstract:

A compact, lightweight expulsion system for a transpiration-cooled nosetip has been designed. This system is sensitive to the environment and is capable of meeting the requirements of a wide variety of maneuvering reentry missions. An additional task was the completion of a nosetip rest on a rocket sled that passed through a rain environment.
