Abstract

A team in JSPEC/JAXA has started a phase-A study and development for the high-speed reentry experiment called DASH-II. In the mission, a small capsule inserted into the geosynchronous orbit or a relevant orbit and conducts reentry flight at the super-orbital velocity after several orbital circulations. The main objective of the mission is to acquire and demonstrate the reentry/entry technologies associated with future planetary exploration missions and high-speed reentry from Moon and from farther small bodies such as Marco-Polo sample return. The present paper describes the DASH-II mission overview and recent development status.
