#Structures

– Launcher designed ✅– Aero-thermodynamics investigated ✅– Flight dynamics and GNC validated ✅– TPS and Mechanisms developed ✅ Now we need to ensure that the #Structures of the reusable launcher 🚀♻️ will withstand the thermal and mechanical loads 🔥⚙️💪🏻 for a safe flight mission #Space #RETALT #Reusability #H2020 #RetroPropulsion #VTVL #Technologies #AerodynamicControlSurfaces #Structures

#Mechanisms

For a safe flight back to earth ↗️↘️🌍 of a reusable launcher 🚀♻️👌 , Aerodynamic Control Surfaces are required to control the descent trajectory, and these control surfaces are deployed and oriented thanks to complex and reliable #Mechanisms investigated in the RETALT project. Discover these #Mechanisms and watch the movie 📽️ of the deployment sequence …

#Thermal Protection System

The reusability ♻️ of a launcher strongly depends on the state in which it is recovered after a flight 🚀↗️↘️👌. The Thermal Protection System is therefore a key element in the design of a reusable launcher, and the characteristics of the TPS are studied 🧐🔥 in #RETALT project. Don’t miss the movie 📽️ of experimental …

#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 🚀 and the efficiency of its control surfaces. #Space#RETALT#Reusability#H2020#RetroPropulsion#Technologies#VTVL#CFD#Aerodynamics

#Aerothermodynamics

The two configurations 🚀 investigated in RETALT will face very hot conditions 🔥 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 🚀, from launch ↗️ to landing ↘️♻️ 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 🎥 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
