The Space Shuttle system consists of four primary elements: an orbiter spacecraft, two Solid Rocket Boosters, an external tank to house fuel and oxidizer and three Space Shuttle main engines.

The orbiter is built by Rockwell International's Space Transportation Systems Division, Downey, Calif., which also has responsibility for the integration.

This paper illustrates the cost advantage of a space transportation system that uses pressure-fed technology and describes pertinent aspects of scaling the propulsion technology for light-lift. Liquid rocket boosters (LRBs) were first considered for the U.S.

Space Transportation System (STS) during the early conceptual phases of the Space Shuttle program. However, solid rocket boosters (SRBs) were ultimately selected for the STS, primarily due to near-term economics.

Liquid rocket boosters are once again being considered as a possible future upgrade to the by: 1. This paper illustrates the cost advantage of a space transportation system that uses pressure-fed technology and describes pertinent aspects of scaling the propulsion technology for light-lift through medium- and heavy-lift vehicles.

Orbital's Space Taxi transportation system consists of a small Space Taxi vehicle, an adapter/launch escape system, cargo carriers located behind the Space Taxi, and a two-stage reusable launch vehicle (RLV) that will eventually be used to launch these elements.

Space Taxi Configuration System Summary Orbital's proposed Space Taxi configuration Cited by: The propulsion module proposed by TRW is propelled by low-thrust gimballed engines, using storable bipropellants from a multitank pressure-fed system.

It mounts in a cradle in the Space Transportation System (STS) Orbiter cargo bay, and provides a platform for integration of spacecraft subsystems and payload mounting. A cost-competitive expendable launch system was identified by using three S solid rocket motors for the first stage, one S engine for the second stage and a flight-proven cluster of pressure-fed liquid engines for the third stage.

Pressure Fed Thrust Chamber Technology Program Contract NAS Final Report July The O-F-O Triplet is the Best Element for LOX/RP Increase Space Transportation System (STS) Safety and Reliability (Abort Capability, Throttleability). The first engine design was a turbopump-fed engine with state-of-the-art design, and the second was a pressure-fed engine which might provide a lower cost alternative to the pump-fed concept.

Both booster concepts were carried through to completion of conceptual design and all system impacts and program costs were identified.

It was referred to in the STBE/STME Quarterly Review - September as the mission 2B vehicle. This reference mission is for the expanded mission model. The launch vehicle had eight liquid rocket boosters with pressure-fed LOX/LH2 engines.

To obtain the mission 2A ( deg inclination) payload the following vehicle changes were made: 1. Non-rocket spacelaunch refers to concepts for launch into space where some or all of the needed speed and altitude are provided by something more powerful or other than rockets, or by other than expendable rockets.

A number of alternatives to expendable rockets have been proposed. In some systems such as a combination launch system, skyhook, rocket sled launch, rockoon, or air launch, a rocket.

This has renewed interest in the potential application of Nuclear Thermal. In order to reduce launch costs, tremendous advances will have to be made in most, if not all, parts of the space transportation system.

The committee believes that an area of equal importance to advanced propulsion technologies and advanced propellant technologies is the airframe, or integrated aerothermal structure, of the reusable launch system.

The three space shuttle main engines burn a liquid oxygen/liquid hydrogen mix fed to them from the external fuel tank. Each engine can producelbs (, kg) of thrust at sea level. The engines can be throttled between 65 percent and percent.

Higher thrust is used during launch. launch vehicles (the Space Shuttle and Titan IVB), a near term, advanced technology space trans-portation system, and extraterrestrial propellant--specifically "lunar-derived" liquid oxygen or LUNOX. The lunar transportation system (LTS) elements consist of an expendable, nuclear thermal rocket (NTR)-powered translunar injection.
