The Air Force has been studying the problem of orbital space flight emergencies to identify the more promising approaches for an emergency return capability. Based upon an initial study, reentry escape systems were selected for further investigation. A detailed analysis of potential orbital emergencies and their impact upon the characteristics desired in escape systems has been conducted. Also, the interface with the ground support net and the status of the technology areas required for subsystem development have been briefly examined.
