AERODYNAMIC AND HYDRODYNAMIC CONSIDERATIONS - The design configuration of the capsule described herein relative to aerodynamic and hydrodynamic considerations has been based on the following:

3.3

a. The overall capsule configuration at the time of re-entry shall be statically stable in the heat shield forward attitude. b. Correct attitude during the re-entry phase shall be facilitated by use of a de-stabilizer flap located on the top of the antenna fairing opposite the roll axis horizon scanner.

c.

Supersonic launch and escape drag shall be reduced by use of an aerodynmic spike and ballast assembly located on top of the escape rocket structural assembly. Design landing condition of the capsule has been based primarily for water impact with land impacts considered as an emergency condition.

R-1

d.

e. The capsule shall be bouyant and stable upright in the water, heat sink down, and shall be capable of righting itself.
STRUCTURAL DESIGN CRITERIA - Structural design criteria of the Mercury Capsule No. 2 shall be as defined in MAC Report No. 6693, revised 3 August 1960, and Paragraphs 2.4 through 2.4,2.5 of NASA Specification S-6, revised 26 January 1959.

- The Project Mercury No. 2 capsule s h a l l be of a conical configuration having an extremely blunt forebody with booster adapter attaphment f i t t i n g s and an afterbody which tapers t o a juncture with a cylindrical section which shal.l support a truncated antenna cone and escape system pylon and rockets. The contours of t h e forebody s h a l l be such as t o provide the maximum practical wave drag and uniform surface heati n g consistent w i t h other requirements. The afterbody configuration s h a l l augment s t a b i l i t y and provide adequate volume, and low heating as well as requirements f o r parachute stowage and escape system attachment, Internal volume of Capsule No. 2 shall be i d e n t i c a l t o the manned capsules which s h a l l be based on a human occupant five f e e t t e n and one-half inches (5'10-1/2") t a l l and weighing one hundred and eighty (180)pounds,

CONSTRUCTION The capsule shall be a semimonocoque structure of R- 1 titanium construction consisting of a conical and a cylindrical section. The conical section s h a l l consist of an unbeaded inner skin seam welded t o a beaded outer skin with 24 equally spaced longitudinal stringers; two bulkheads from the pressurized cabin area. The cylindrical section shall have a single s k i n with 12 e w l y spaced stringers and i n t e r n a l shear webs which support t h e parachutes. The capsule structure shall be protected from heat, noise and micrometeorites by insulation and an outer covering of shingles plus a beryllium heat sink which shall absorb heat during re-entry.
The entPance hatch located i n t h e 'afterbody E"CE HATCH shall be of construction similar t o t h e basic capsule. (See Figure 1.) Prior t o capsule launch, the entrance hatch s h a l l be bolted and sealed i n t o position with bolts, and corrugated shingles shall be i n s t a l l e d over t h e door.

The exit hatch shall be located i n the s m a l l afterbody pressure bulkhead. The e x i t s h a l l be an inward openi n g plug type hatch with a latch type release handle and linkage. Handholds and steps shall. be provided i n order t o f a c i l i t a t e egress through t h e top hatch. These may be i n t e g r a l structural components or equipment, which s h a l l be reinforced and identified as necessary. The exit s h a l l remain operable a f t e r a normal land impact.

INSTAUATION The retrograde rocket assembly shall be mounted on a s t r u c t u r a l frame encased within an insulated aluminum a l l o y housing which shall be secured external t o the heat sink by retaining straps. The retaining straps, MAC No. 45-72030-301, s h a l l be attached t o the capsule by retention f i t t i n g s , MAC No. 45-32086-1, which remain engaged only as long as tension e x i s t s i n the straps, and to the rocket s t r u c t u r a l assembly by a centrally located explosive bolt, MAC No. 45-72704-9. Jettison of the retrograde rocket assembly shall be effected by release of the retaining straps by f i r i n g of the explosive e j e c t o r bolt, removing tension from the retaining straps, and permitting a compression spring j e t t i s o n assembly, MAC No. 45-50013-901, to t h r u s t the retrograde assembly from the capsule. I n i t i a t i o n of the ejector b o l t shall be through a f i r i n g command latching signal which shall bypass t h e r e t r o f i r e sequencing sensor permitting retrograde rocket assembly separation a f t e r a 60 second time delay even though one o r none of t h e rockets has fired. The rockets and rocket nozzles shall be shielded by cover assemblies, MAC No- 45-50012-1, f o r pmtection'againstmetaorite penetration. These covers shall blow off as the rockets f i r e o The rocket assembly housing s h a l l be finished with a p a i n t possessing s u f f i c i e n t solar absorptivity characteristics to provide a r e l a t i v e l y w a m environment within the enclosure. Provision shall be made within the housing to insure proper temperature control by inclusion of a heater assembly, MAC No. 45-50702-ll, and t h e m o s t a t assembly, MAC No. 45-79705-11, i n each rocket installation, as well as thermoflex insulation.
