The CST-100 Starliner is Boeing's new crew capsule. It has a detachable nosecone which serves several structural purposes. Because the capsule uses a pusher-style launch escape system, there is no escape tower, and thus a nosecone is needed for aerodynamics. The nosecone also covers a docking tunnel during launch and can be jettisoned.
Does the nosecone perform any other purpose than these structural needs? For example, are there any sensors in the nosecone (e.g. a Q-ball)? Is anything stored in the nosecone?
