AIR FORCE BOOSTER GROWTH CONCEPTS 690713

The current family of Air Force space launch vehicles which has grown primarily from our series of ballistic missile programs is described. Continuing evolutionary booster developments and improvements, in combination with space configured upper stages and strap-on solid motors, have provided the Air Force with this versatile family of small, medium and large launch vehicles. Growth versions of these vehicles, attained through stage and component improvements, new combinations of stages, and application of advanced technology programs, are presented. These growth versions provide the Air Force with a number of options for increased launch vehicle capabilities in the 1970's.
