Abstract/Summary The goal of this project is to develop a payload for the European EXPERT program. The task of this package is to characterize the boundary layer around the KHEOPS reentry vehicle at different conditions during the trajectory. This will be performed using Pitot probes (dynamic pressure measurements) and electrostatic probes (electron density measurements). Numerical simulations are used to determine the conceptual geometry of the probe rake, then this geometry is optimized experimentally for resisting the high thermal and mechanical loads and for providing high quality data. Finally, the complete system (rake + acquisition system) will be tested before flight.
