• A Survey of Ballute Technology for Aerocapture 

      Rohrschneider, Reuben R.; Braun, Robert D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-06)
      Ballute aerodynamic decelerators have been studied since early in the space age (1960’s), being proposed for aerocapture in the early 1980’s. Significant technology advances in fabric and polymer materials as well ...
