FLIGHT ENVIRONMENT DESIGN PARAMETERS FOR MARS AND VENUS
AERONAUTICAL SYSTEMS DIV WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
The physical characteristics of the planets Mars and Venus are assessed and probable quantitative limits are defined as minimum, representative and maximum probable values for application to environmental studies and equipment design. These data are applied to Chapmans generalized analysis for bodies entering planetary atmospheres to produce probable minimum, representative and maximum flight environ ent design parameters. These planetary parameters are applied with body and trajectory parameters, using Chapmans analysis, to selected direct, multipass and graze entries. Author
