Abstract

The assembly of the International Space Station calls for many hundreds ofhours of extra-vehicular activity and for maintenance thereafter. Occupation will involve as many as eight residents at a time. This level of human activity introduces significant risk of injury or illness and the need to return the patient to Earth. This return must avoid delays in orbit and unnecessary physical stress to the patient. SLEEC22 is a novel kind of 'space ambulance' based in orbit that is intended to return a patient and attendant back to Earth in a gentle winged descent, restricting the peak g experienced to less than a tenth above normal ground-level values. It allows a wider than usual 're-entry window! that, would permit a landing at any of an extensive choice of airfields. It makes use of a lightweight waverider wing with only shallow anhedral and 'sharp' metallic leading edges. Cooling of the structure, both exterior and interior,is effected by conduction-assisted radiation.
