A presentation of basic trajectory data during reentry, for a series of reentry vehicles with ballistic coefficients ranging from 300 to 3000 lb/sq ft. Reentry flight-path angles were varied from 10 to 60 deg, with reentry velocities corresponding to a nominal ballistic range of 5500 n mi. In addition to the usual trajectory parameters, other variables particularly useful in studies of low-altitude interception systems are presented.
