RLV-TD HEX-01 mission was configured as a precursor flight to actual two stages to orbit vehicle. In this mission RLV-TD was designed as a two stage vehicle for demonstrating the hypersonic flight of a winged body vehicle at Mach No. 5. One of the main objectives of this mission was to generate data for better understanding of new technologies required to design the future vehicle. In this mission, the RLV-TD vehicle was heavily instrumented to get data related to performance of different… 
Preliminary aerodynamic design of a reusable booster flight experiment
The Reusable Flight Experiment (ReFEx) is an experimental vehicle currently in development by the German Aerospace Center (DLR), which simulates the reentry of a winged reusable booster stage by CFD simulations using the DLR TAU-Code.


Design Considerations for a Launch Vehicle Development Flight Instrumentation System
A simplistic DFI architecture that could be the basis for the next NASA launch vehicle is discussed, followed by a discussion of the " experiences gained" from a past DFI system implementation, such as the very successful Ares I-X test flight.
Flight control system for the automatic landing flight experiment
This paper discusses the flight control system developed for the Automatic Landing FLight Experiment, ALFLEX. ALFLEX is an experimental program conducted by the National Aerospace Laboratory and the
Telemetry and Tracking System for the H-IIA Launch Vehicle
Three new subsystems have been developed based on the experience with H-II; a MPEG-I Onboard Monitoring System, a GPS Receiver System for Flight Safety, and a High-rated Data Acquisition System.
The Mission Planning Lab: A Visualization and Analysis Tool
Simulation and visualization are powerful decision making tools that are time-saving and cost-effective. Space missions pose testing and evaluation challenges that can be overcome through modeling,
