Abstract:
To make hypersonic vehicles more realizable in today’s world, the complex multidisciplinary physics that are involved must be more understood. A current challenge involves accurately characterizing the particulate content at hypersonic cruise altitudes (stratosphere) and how they affect the performance of the vehicles. In this payload application, we propose to fly multiple optical particle detectors on the 2019 HASP mission to make multi-hour measurements of stratospheric particle concentrations at all altitudes up to and including float. The objective is to help compare/characterize low-cost, mid-cost, and high-cost optical particle detector performance in actual stratospheric conditions. This experiment will support an on-going research project to better characterize particulate content in the stratosphere above 80,000 feet for use in hypersonic flow computer simulations to assist in the design of future hypersonic vehicles.
