      Serious attempts at completely reusable launch vehicles started in the s. The most prominent were the McDonnell-Douglas DC-X and the Lockheed Martin X VentureStar. The DC-X was an experimental version of the Delta Clipper, a Single-Stage-To-Orbit (SSTO) launch vehicle.   An array of metallic Thermal Protection System (TPS) panels developed for the windward surface of the X vehicle was tested in the 8-Foot High Temperature Tunnel at the NASA Langley Research Center. These tests were the first aerothermal tests of an X TPS array and the test results will be used to validate the TPS for the X flight by: 3.

      public and private, in reusable vehicle development. One source [1] claims that a reusable variant of the Aerobee sounding rocket was flown; if so, it was the first reusable vehicle. Notable reusable orbital LV programs that never demonstrated powered flight were the Sea Dragon, X, X and the K The first stage of the Soviet/Russian. For an example of a rocket sled inclined rail assisted launch, we will use four ,lb thrust Boeing RS rocket engines (two on each side of a sled) to launch an X size RLV with sufficient speed to make orbit. Parameters for an example of an X assisted launch. Launch weight of an X = , lbs.

      Two attempts to build an RLV—the McDonnell Douglas Delta Clipper and the NASA/Lockheed Martin X—had to compete with paper studies of better shuttles. Both were SSTOs and both failed. A two-stage-to-orbit (TSTO) reusable vehicle has emerged from many design studies as a good tradeoff between performance and technical risk. Reusable Launch and Space Vehicle Table - Mark Wade provides lots of material on many RLV projects including those that never got past the design stage, e.g. Dynosaur, and those actually built, e.g. X

The objective of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) Program is to develop technology and demonstrations for providing reliable, low cost access to space.

Phase I of the RLV program consists of concept definition and technology development leading. Currently under construction, X is the subscale prototype of the VentureStar single-stage-to-orbit reusable launch vehicle (RLV).

The project is a joint effort of NASA and the Lockheed Martin Skunk Works. VentureStar is a potential successor to the Space Shuttle, providing low-cost access to orbit for satellites and s: 1.

A reusable launch system is a launch system that includes the recovery of some or all of the component stages. To date, several fully reusable suborbital systems and partially reusable orbital systems have been flown. The first reusable launch vehicle to reach orbit was the Space Shuttle, which was not able to accomplish the intended goal of reducing launch costs to below those of.

The X vehicle will demonstrate advanced technologies to dramatically increase launch vehicle safety, reliability and lower the cost of putting a pound of payload into space from $10, to $1, The X is a half-scale prototype of a reusable launch vehicle (RLV) Lockheed Martin calls the "VentureStarTM.".

The X is a technology demonstrator for NASA's "next-generation" of space launch vehicle. It will flight test a range of technologies needed for single-stage-to-orbit reusable launch vehicles, such as thermal protection systems, composite cryogenic fuel tanks, and the aerospike engine.

Test flights are scheduled to begin in July   The wedge-shaped X was a sub-scale technology demonstration prototype of a Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV). Through demonstration flights and ground research, NASA's X program was to provide the information needed for industry representatives such as Lockheed Martin (builder of the X Venture Star) to decide by the year whether to proceed with.

The X program was designed to pave the way to a full-scale, commercially developed RLV as the flagship technology demonstrator for technologies that would lower the cost of access to space.

government agencies, both civil and military, have sought to develop a reusable launch vehicle (RLV), seeing it as a critical tool for lowering the cost of space access.
