Semi RLV configurations are investigated with reusability of 1st or booster stages arranged in parallel with an expendable upper compartment. The non-symmetrical architecture consists of a winged RLV-stage and attached ELV-part comprising either one or two stages. The rocket propulsion is mostly cryogenic LOX-LH2 with the option of a storable propellant upper stage. The paper summarizes major results of the preliminary technical design process. The overall shape and aerodynamic configuration, the propulsion and feed system, the architecture and structural lay-out of the stages are described and some indicators on the configuration’s launch cost efficiency are provided.
