Winged Test Rocket with Fully Autonomous Guidance and Control for Realizing Reusable Suborbital Vehicle
This paper presents the strategic development plan of
winged rockets WIRES (WInged REusable Sounding rocket) aiming
at unmanned suborbital winged rocket for demonstrating future fully
reusable space transportation technologies, such as aerodynamics,
Navigation, Guidance and Control (NGC), composite structure,
propulsion system, and cryogenic tanks etc., by universities in
collaboration with government and industries, as well as the past and
current flight test results.
