JSC NPO Molniya,
AbstractThe research is conducted at the choice of an aerodynamic configuration of a reusable winged booster of transport space systems. The methodology (criterion) of comparison of aerodynamic layouts of boosters is designed. The aerodynamic layouts of a reusable winged booster executed on aerodynamic configurations "normal", "tailless", "canard" are designed. Their computational balancing aerodynamic performances are determined.
