A Trendsetting Micro-Launcher for Europe

Gamgami, Farid (2009) A Trendsetting Micro-Launcher for Europe. 3rd EUCASS 2009, 6-9 Juli 2009, Versailles Frankreich. (Unpublished)



In this paper we analyse a potential, future European launcher for micro payloads (200kg in LEO). This study comprises ascent trajectory calculation, aerodynamics and mass estimation. The most remarkable feature is the reusable first stage (RFS). Therefore, beside the ascent analyses, reentry calculations have also been performed. To bring the first stage back to an airbase we suggest in-air capturing. In addition to the technical performance analyses we discuss the potential this kind of launcher has for European space transportation.
