Stage Data - Saturn INT-11

  • Stage 0. 4 x Titan UA1207. Gross Mass: 319,330 kg (704,000 lb). Empty Mass: 51,230 kg (112,940 lb). Thrust (vac): 7,116.999 kN (1,599,965 lbf). Isp: 272 sec. Burn time: 120 sec. Isp(sl): 245 sec. Diameter: 3.05 m (10.00 ft). Span: 3.05 m (10.00 ft). Length: 34.14 m (112.00 ft). Propellants: Solid. No Engines: 1. Engine: UA1207. Status: In Production.
  • Stage 1. 1 x Saturn IB-11. Gross Mass: 505,953 kg (1,115,435 lb). Empty Mass: 48,545 kg (107,023 lb). Thrust (vac): 8,241.763 kN (1,852,822 lbf). Isp: 296 sec. Burn time: 153 sec. Isp(sl): 262 sec. Diameter: 6.52 m (21.39 ft). Span: 6.52 m (21.39 ft). Length: 30.48 m (99.99 ft). Propellants: Lox/Kerosene. No Engines: 8. Engine: H-1b. Status: Study 1966. Comments: 20 foot stretch of Saturn IB for use with UA1207 7 segment solid rocket strap-on units.
  • Stage 2. 1 x Saturn IVB (S-IB). Gross Mass: 118,800 kg (261,900 lb). Empty Mass: 12,900 kg (28,400 lb). Thrust (vac): 1,031.600 kN (231,913 lbf). Isp: 421 sec. Burn time: 475 sec. Isp(sl): 200 sec. Diameter: 6.61 m (21.68 ft). Span: 6.61 m (21.68 ft). Length: 17.80 m (58.30 ft). Propellants: Lox/LH2. No Engines: 1. Engine: J-2. Status: Out of Production. Comments: Saturn IB version of S-IVB stage. Due to lower payload, 300 kg saving in structure compared to Saturn V version. Due to deletion of restart requirement, 700 kg saving in propulsion system (primarily reduction in helium for restart).

Family: orbital launch vehicle. People: von Braun. Country: USA. Engines: H-1b. Stages: Saturn IB-11, Saturn IVB (S-IB), UA1207.
