Abstract

This article discusses composites for unmanned space vehicles and provides an overview of key design drivers, challenges, and environment for use of composites in spacecraft, launch vehicles, and missiles. It describes the design allowable properties of composite materials. The article provides information on the specific state-of-the-art applications of composite materials for spacecraft missiles and launch vehicles. A discussion on key applications, including solid rocket motor casings, payload fairings, and payload support structures, is presented.
