2 SHARP genesis development of new UHTC’s, ultra high temperature ceramics –shingles on shuttle max temp- 3000 F –new UHTC max temp- 5000 F result- sharp leading edge profiles are now possible

3 SHARP profile advantages –more efficient atmospheric exit and re-entry –better cross-range capability (wider range of re-entry angles) –minimized radio blackout during re-entry disadvantages –generates extremely high temperature at the sharp edge/tip

4 SHARP future Next generation space shuttles- X-33 nosecones –re-entry vehicles –launch vehicles (rockets & boosters)

5 SHARP PROJECTS B-series –sharp nosecones –B1 re-entry vehicle already launched (B2 near launch) S-series –university & small business partnership –test a knife edge geometry –4 launches L-series –full size –2 launches –UHTC test

6 SHARP S-series Atmospheric re-entry vehicles with knife edge profiles –reaches Mach 3.5 –UHTC not required prototype sounding rocket launch vehicle –halfway to near earth orbit S4

7 S1 launch schedule Orion class rocket launches –4,000 lb thrust, 5g vibrations S1 deploys at apogee –270,000 ft –data acquisition begins fin-tube stabilizer jettisoned –150,000 ft –primary data capture temperature, pressure, accelerations S1 re-enters atmosphere S1 parachute deployed –20,000 ft rocket and S1 recovery via helicopter

8 SHARP S-series goals Create working relationships between NASA, universities and small businesses gather aero & thermodynamic data on the SHARP-S profile –compare with computer simulations Provide data for the L-series –S-series serve as prototypes –same geometry, ~ 2x size –UHTC equipped (mach 20 vs. 3.5)

12 MSU research groups Montana Space Grant Consortium –federally funded program which disperses grant money to space oriented projects Composites Research Group –co-directors: Dr. Cairns, Dr. Mandell –material characterization, structures & manufacturing –wind energy, aerospace

13 NASA designated responsibilities Design and build the S1-4 re-entry vehicles using composite materials integrate the structure with: –avionics (Stanford) –sounding rocket (Wickman Spacecraft) low operating budget –faster, better, cheaper motto –$ 50k/year budget
