Abstract
A preliminary investigation of the aerodynamic and control characteristics of a flexible glider similar to a parachute in construction has been made at the Langley Research Center to evaluate its capabilities as a reentry glider. Preliminary weight estimates of the proposed vehicle indicate that such a structure can be made with extreamly low wing loading. Maximum temperatures during the reentry maneuver might be held as low as about 1,500 degrees F.
