A method and apparatus for operating a nose cone. In one illustrative example, an apparatus comprises a plurality of segments and a movement system associated with the plurality of segments. The plurality of segments forms the nose cone. Each of the plurality of segments comprises a segment outer surface that forms a portion of an outer surface of the nose cone. The movement system is used to move at least one of the plurality of segments to move the nose cone between a retracted state and an expanded state.
1. An apparatus comprising: a plurality of segments that form a nose cone, such that each segment in the plurality of segments comprises: a segment outer surface that forms a portion of an outer surface of the nose cone, a concentric shape about a central axis of the nose cone, and a configuration that nests, concentrically about the central axis, within a base portion of the nose cone when the each segment is in a retracted state; anda movement system located within the nose cone and comprising a plurality of actuators, each actuator in the plurality of...
