Different variants of a Two Stage to Orbit (TSTO) launch vehicle, based on technologies available in Europe, combining a solid rocket motor and a cryogenic upper stage propelled by the Vinci engine and aiming at exploiting synergies with other on-going European programs are presented in this paper. After a first sizing based on data from existing upper stages, preliminary structural analyses and tank designs have been performed, considering different first stages, such as P120, P150 and P160. A preliminary optimisation of the first stage thrust law and of the propellant mass of the upper stage has been done.
