American heavy-lift orbital launch vehicle. ATK Thiokol concept for a shuttle-derived heavy lift vehicle with a lift equivalent to the Saturn V. The radical reconfiguration would put all elements in-line. Four SSME engines would be at the base of a stretched external tank, flanked by two shuttle RSRM motors with a fifth segment added. Atop this would be an 8.7 m diameter LOx/LH2 stage, followed by a 10-m diameter payload fairing. Availability would be ten years after go-ahead.

Status: Design 2004. Payload: 102,000 kg (224,000 lb). Height: 127.00 m (416.00 ft). Diameter: 8.70 m (28.50 ft). Span: 10.00 m (32.00 ft). Apogee: 500 km (310 mi).

LEO Payload: 102,000 kg (224,000 lb) to a 500 km orbit at 51.60 degrees.



Family: heavy-lift, orbital launch vehicle. Country: USA. Agency: Thiokol.
