Abstract:Past experience on the Kistler K-1 and VentureStar RLV development programs, as well as continued business analysis, indicates that understanding Future Space Markets is critical to designing the next generation of reusable launch vehicles. Andrews Space & Technology has conducted market analyses and investigated a range of TSTO RLV concepts to derive design requirements for a commercially viable 2nd Gen RLV. AS&T has concluded that HTHL TSTO architectures hold the most promise for achieving the derived safety, reliability and operability requirements. In addition, an analysis of candidate HTHL architectures indicates that subsonic in-flight LOX generation (ACES) has the best performance and safety characteristics.
