EXPERT nose cap gets the all clear
The ceramic matrix composite nose cap for Earth atmosphere re-entry vehicles developed at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) in Stuttgart is now fit for space. It has passed the required final load tests on the ground successfully, so it is now ready for flight. As a central component of EXPERT (European eXPErimental Re-entry Testbed), a European experimental re-entry vehicle, the nose cap’s integrated measuring instruments will collect important data during the Earth atmosphere re-entry phase of its 2010 flight.
