Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Personal Reentry Kit (PRK) was originally developed as a means of emergency atmospheric reentry from a crippled space vessel, and then quickly adopted by the military, which provided a glamorous raison d’etre for jump troops.

Typical Kit Contents[edit]

Each kit consists of an inflatable hemispheric mold, a pressurized canister of ablative foam, and a chemical thruster for attitude and limited vector adjustment. The kit does include a soft landing system (usually a parachute).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The PRK has no provision for defensive decoys and depends on its operator for maneuvering instructions (instead of the on-board computer used in military drop capsules.
