P4_5 Atmospheric ODSTs

M. Jupp, D. Cobley, K. Yeomans, D. Fenlon-Smith


In this paper the maximum acceleration on the ODST and the pod was found to be $-4g$, with a braking thrusters force of $14100$ N during the last $50$ m of descent. This deceleration brings the impact velocity of the pod to below velocity of $1$ ms$^{-1}$, should the braking thrusters fail to fire the pod will hit the ground with a velocity of $43.2$ ms$^{-1}$ killing the trooper.
