Abstract:

This memorandum describes and reports the results from a development program conducted by the Mini-RPV Group of the Aeromechanics Division of the Flight Dynamics Laboratory to define techniques for the low-cost production of mini-RPVs. Areas covered include the applicability of very low-density structural foams, and reinforced plastics, exploration of methods and parameters relating to structural foam, fabrication of usable mini-RPV component parts, and an initial assessment of alternate and complementary materials and techniques. Conclusions and recommendations are also presented. AN
