#Aerodynamics – CFD

Subsonic, supersonic, hypersonic… All these flying regimes need to be investigated by means of CFD simulations to improve the #aerodynamics of the launcher πŸš€ and the efficiency of its control surfaces. #Space#RETALT#Reusability#H2020#RetroPropulsion#Technologies#VTVL#CFD#Aerodynamics

#Aerothermodynamics

The two configurations πŸš€ investigated in RETALT will face very hot conditions πŸ”₯ during re-entry or retro-propulsion maneuvers.It’s therefore crucial to know the thermal loads in order to properly design the Thermal Protection Systems. #Space#RETALT#Reusability#H2020#RetroPropulsion#Technologies#VTVL#CFD#Aerothermodynamics

#Flight Dynamics & GNC

This week, learn more about Flight Dynamics as well as Guidance, Navigation and Control which are key technologies for a safe flight mission πŸš€, from launch ↗️ to landing β†˜οΈβ™»οΈ Technologies investigated by Deimos Space, partner of the RETALT project. #Space#RETALT#Reusability#H2020#RetroPropulsion#Technologies#VTVL#FlightDynamics#GNC

#Aerodynamics – Wind Tunnel Tests

Over 170 runs… Now you will see concrete things 🀩 Don’t miss the movie πŸŽ₯ of the wind tunnel tests performed at German Aerospace Center (DLR), as part of the #aerodynamics topic investigated in the RETALT project. #Space#RETALT#Reusability#H2020#RetroPropulsion#ResearchAndInnovation#Technologies#VTVL#RETALT1#RETALT2#Aerodynamics#WindTunnelTests
