  • Structural Analyses of the JPL Mars Pathfinder Impacts
    An additional result used to validate the model was surface fi-iction between the impact plane and the Kevlar airbags .
  • Structural analyses of the JPL Mars Pathfinder impact
    An additionalresultused to validatethemodel was sur- face friction between the impact plane and the Kevlar airbags .
  • Martian Outpost
    system (TPS) protects the crew during atmospheric entry and a combination of parachutes and four Kevlar airbags are deployed to protect the crew during a land touchdown, although a water flotation system may also be deployed in case of a water landing.
  • Lunar Outpost
    On return to Earth, a combination of parachutes and four Kevlar airbags are deployed for a land touchdown, although a water ¯otation system may also be deployed in case of a water landing.
  • Sports Injuries
    Because of the very professional safety features and equip- ment by motorsport (seat belts, Kevlar seats, airbags , and so on) penetrating trauma is not so common, as at the “normal” street accidents [11].
  • Aerodynamic Decelerator Systems Technology Conferences > Design of an Airbag Landing System for Small Mars Landers (AIAA 2013-1279)
    Retraction is achieved by routing Kevlar cords around the airbag bladder, which are then winched in to pull the airbag material back against the sides of the payload.
  • Spinning Flight
    The airbags w^ere made of a Kevlar fabric with a urethane coating; vents between the bags allowed gas to be transferred between the bottom bag and the upper ones during impact (Waye et al., 1995).
  • Testing technology. A Sandia Technology Bulletin
    Constructed of coated Kevlar cloth with fusion-welded seams, the airbag system was designed to decelerate the lander during impacts up to 35 meters per second vertically and in winds estimated to exceed 35 meters per second horizontally.
  • NASA Crashes Helicopters to Improve Safety
    The DEA, akin to an automotive airbag , is made of a rigid, honeycombed Kevlar material.
  • Mars Pathfinder airbag impact attenuation system
    Figure 2- Airbag systemwith lander Construction Polyurethane coated 3.0 o*d2 Kevlar fabric was selectedfor the proof of concept0.38 scalepro- -totypeairbag(figure3).
