Summary

The need for improved ceramic coatings compatible with new low density reusable surface insulation (RSI) material for Advanced Atmospheric Entry Spacecraft has stimulated research on higher temperature capability coatings. The paper discusses the use of overlays and compositional modifications to improve the baseline (RCG) coating. Stability of composition and morphology of these coatings are described relative to radiant and convective heating environments.
