Abstract

DLR’s Space Launcher Systems Analysis division analyzes generic Reusable Launch Vehicles for missions to Geostationary Transfer Orbit. The launcher configurations consist of a reusable first stage and two expendable upper stages. For the reusable first stage different separation Mach numbers are considered. The return options considered are stage fly-back and stage in-air capturing. Based on mass estimation, analysis of ascent and descent aerodynamics as well as ascent and reentry trajectory optimization first results for the return options stage fly-back and in-air capturing are presented.
