Question
Are nosecones aerodynamic devices?
Does the nosecone need to be considered for the Impact Attenuator?
Answer
Nosecones are not considered aerodynamic devices per T.7.2.1.
They are subject to T.7.1.2 minimum 38mm front radius.

For the purposes of the Impact Attenuator and IAD:
Nosecones are considered crushable and are ignored.

Exception, non-crushable: Structural nosecones being used as impact attenuators and tested dynamically.
