KRUPS: Certification & Testing

Grants and Contracts Details


The Kentucky Re-entry Universal Payload System (KRUPS) is a physical protoight of an experimental re-entry vehicle that was designed and built by a team of students at the University of Kentucky. The vehicle is intended as a research platform to gather information and collect data on re-entry flow field and thermal protection system response. This proposal seeks funding to qualify KRUPS for flight. More specifically, system verification programming implementation will be performed, and launch qualifications will be carried out.
