Next Generation Delta 100 t
Part of Delta IV Family
American orbital launch vehicle. Conceptual next generation Delta booster beyond Delta IV Heavy, equaling Saturn V of the 1960's in payload capability. The booster would use two parallel 7-m-diameter booster stages, a notional RS-XXX LOx/LH2 rocket motor, and a 7 m diameter upper stage and fairing. Payload fairings of 7 m diameter could be accommodated. Introduction would require new launch pads and booster assembly infrastructure, and a new factory to handle the larger-diameter tooling.

Status: Study 2004. Payload: 91,000 kg (200,000 lb). Height: 64.00 m (209.00 ft). Diameter: 7.00 m (22.90 ft). Span: 21.00 m (68.00 ft). Apogee: 407 km (252 mi).

LEO Payload: 91,000 kg (200,000 lb) to a 407 km orbit at 28.50 degrees. Payload: 35,000 kg (77,000 lb) to a earth escape.



Family: orbital launch vehicle. Country: USA. Agency: Douglas.
