Some interesting details of the development work planned there in the second half of that document, especially with regard to plans for structural test section of fuselage and camera window elements, and the work planned to evaluate several types of metallic shingles to TPS.

The powerplant for ISINGLASS was the P&W XLR-129, by the way.
