A French Concept for an Aerospace Transporter 670388

Assuming the delivery with an excess velocity reserve 3.300 ft/sec of a 1 ton. transferable load to a space laboratory orbiting at 200 S.M., the feasibility of a 2 (or 3) stages “horizontal take-off transporter” is considered.
Analysis includes the concept of two recoverable vehicles and discusses the configuration, separation, return and propulsion. Design assumes that conventional airports can be used without special facilities, except LOX and LH.
