ABOUT US

A spacecraft is exposed to various thermal-fluid environments from the launch to the period in space and return to the Earth. Missions of our laboratory are understanding of aerodynamic heating and aerodynamic characteristics in re-entry to the atmosphere, bringing about a breakthrough in a realization of next-generation thermal control system for spacecraft, and realization of a new exploration system (Planetary Locomotion) which utilizes the fluid-dynamic forces such as the airplane for other planets with the atmosphere through this research.
