  • Space and defence users are constantly looking for systems that bring new capabilities that have robustness and reliability, technological maturity, failure mechanisms based on graceful degradation and significantly lower mass, size and power consumption.

  • Atmospheric reentry systems are a continuing to grown in complexity and sophistication. These systems expand from the traditional rigid aeroshell reentry using a ballistic or lifting body approach to aerocapture and hypersonic inflatables.
