Advanced Technology Upper Stages for Future Launchers

Sippel, Martin and Lang, Anna and Dumont, Etienne and Gerstmann, Jens and Montenegro, Sergio (2010) Advanced Technology Upper Stages for Future Launchers. IAC 2010, 27. Sep- 01. Oktober 2010, Prag, CZ.



The paper describes two different preliminary system designs for stages employing advanced technologies: 1. An experimental micro-stage with a very small storable propellant engine for LEO applications. This vehicle is part of the multinational (France, Spain, Germany) cooperation Aldébaran investigating future options of micro-launchers. 2. An advanced small TSTO rocket with a payload capability in the range of 2000+ kg in SSO and more than 1200 kg in higher energy orbits like MTO. The first stage consists of a high pressure solid motor with a fiber casing while the upper stage is using cryogenic propellants. Synergies with other ongoing European development programs are to be exploited. In its second part the paper gives an overview on advanced cryogenic upper-stage technologies presently under investigation in Germany.
