Space Debris

Our team has expertise in space debris environment models, conjunction assessments, and space situational awareness. The team has the experience to model the space debris environment using historical conjunction assessments or simulations of the future environment in order to identify objects for remediation.

Hypercone inflatable supersonic decelerator

The need for an efficient supersonic decelerator arises first for use in aero-braking planetary landers, but may also have other uses such as spacecraft crew escape and aerocapture of orbital planetary probes.Hypercone is a concept currently under investigation for use in such applications.
