Abstract : Results are presented from a static test conducted to demonstrate the capability of the parachute aft bridle fitting backup structure to withstand the recovery parachute loads. The aft bridle fitting loads were of the same magnitude as those of NASA Gemini and the bridle fitting was identical to that of NASA Gemini. Modification to the fitting backup structure as a result of incorporating a hatch in the large pressure bulkhead was the reason for retesting this area. (Author)
