1 Aerodynamics Project Olympus

2 Ballute Material Ballute material is Kapton
Filled with Helium Gas to Mars surface Pressure for landing and 100 Pa for Aerocapture Tethers are PBO By Richard O’Connor

3 Mars Thermal Protection System (TPS)
Low Heating Rates with Ballutes Non-Ablators Carbon phenolic If a Ballute is usable than this Heat shield will work TPS Mass 3.0 t

4 Aerobrake Maneuver for Earth Propulsion (EP) Tug
Prior to Aerobrake Maneuver: EET Location/Altitude: km (at Highest Energy Ellipse Orbit) Initial Aerobrake Parameters: Atmospheric Entry Velocity: km/s Constant Atmospheric Entry & Exit Altitude: 150 km (at LEO) Perigee radius (Rp) for all Aerobrake runs: fixed at 115 km EP Parameters: Maximum Diameter: 10 m EET Mass: 29.1 t Tankage Mass & Size will vary per crew

5 Total Energy Dissipated (J)
Aerobrake Maneuver Options: Aerobrake #1= 3 Runs, Aerobrake # 2 = 7 Runs Ablative Heat Shield Required: Material: AVOCAT H/CG Heat Shield Mass Calculations: TOFD (days) Aerobrake # 1 Aerobrake # 2 ≈ 5 ≈ 10 Aerobrake Maneuver Total Energy Dissipated (J) Aerobrake # 1 1.49 x 108 J Aerobrake # 2 9.40 x 107 J Heat Shield Mass (t) Aerobrake # 1 Aerobrake # 2 4.32 2.01

6 Earth - Aerobraking Tug

7 Mars -Aerocapture Using the Atmospheric Drag to do a ΔV for entering into an Orbit Crew 3 Total Mass t Velocity 6.4 km/s Ballute Mass 3.07 t TPS Mass 3 t Max g’s 2.67g

8 Mars -Crew Landing From MLO
Crews 1-7 Mass 100t Velocity 3.5 km/s TPS Mass 3.0 t Ballute Mass 2.93 t Max gs 4.07 Working on pinpoint landing Working on last 14km and handing over to hovering

9 Mars -Cargo Entry Cargo Mass 68t – 91t Velocity 6.0 km/s TPS Mass 3.0 t Ballute Mass 4.89 t Some of the Cargo Missions will be Aerocaptured to LMO Increased Mass gives a better ballute efficiency

10 Earth Descent Vehicle (EDV)
Direct Re-entry into Earth Use of Capsule with Subsonic Parachutes similar to Apollo/Orion PICA-X ablator Conditions Initial Velocity 12.6 km/s Flight Path Angle -7.1o Max gs 6.6 g Heat Shield Mass 0.64 t

11 Earth Re-entry Trajectory
Landed Mass Entry velocity (h = 150 km) 6 metric tons 12.57 km/s Interface flight path angle -7.065 Allowable variation +0.1/-0.2 max deceleration 6.58g 4g+ period 230 sec Duration 486 sec (8m 6s) Total stag point heating 56.3 kJ/cm2 Required TPS mass 0.61 t Ending velocity (h = 4 km) 75.6 m/s

12 Earth Entry Capsule - Geometry
Heat shield: 3 m radius, 3 m nose radius, 3.6 cm thickness Capsule total mass: 6.6 t Crew compartment: cylindrical pressure vessel, 2.25 m tall x 3 m diameter Docking/crew entry port on top side (for attaching to Transit Hab)
