Abstract

This paper presents the conceptual design of a re-entry vehicle suitable for the emergency return of personnel from the International Space Station. For injured occupants, or those with emergency medical conditions, a re-entry environment with a maximum g loading of less than 1.1 would be necessary. This has been met by using a relatively conventional design employing leading-edge bluntness and a passive thermal-protection system. The paper addresses the guidance and control required to meet these conditions and thermal modelling is used to determine the cabin temperature rise during re-entry. In comparison with vehicles employing greater aerodynamic sophistication,such as wave-riders, the crossrange is inferior, but in other respects it is shown that the requirements of the re-entry environment can be met.
