The FLAME payload was designed to recover reentry vehicle nosetips after subjecting them to ICBM-level reentry environments. The payload is a two-stage solid propellant rocket fired towards the earth, after being dropped from an F4 aircraft at 60,000 feet. The payload employs a unique two-stage hypersonic decelerator system for nosetip recovery. A total of eight 8 flight tests were performed. Author
