    X Advanced Technology Demonstrator. EC X program engineers at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, California, monitor a flight simulation of the X Advanced Technology Demonstrator as a "flight" unfolds. The simulation provided flight trajectory data while flight control laws are being designed and developed. The X- 34, a small technology demonstrator, will undergo test flight in while the X large technology demonstrator is planned for test flight in Success of the X could lead to a national, industry-led decision to develop a commercial reusable launch vehicle early next century.

      The X was a wedged-shaped subscale technology demonstrator prototype of a potential future Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) that Lockheed Martin had dubbed VentureStar. The company hoped to develop VentureStar early this century. Through demonstration flight and ground research, NASA's X program was to have provided the information needed. Get this from a library! The Reusable Launch Vehicle Technology Program and the X advanced technology demonstrator. [Stephen A Cook; United States. .

    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 expendable. The X and X programs were part of an effort that began in known as the Reusable Launch Vehicle Technology/Demonstrator Program (Reusable Launch Vehicle Program)-to pave the way to .

The Lockheed Martin X was an uncrewed, sub-scale technology demonstrator suborbital spaceplane developed in the s under the U.S. government–funded Space Launch Initiative program. The X was a technology demonstrator for the VentureStar orbital spaceplane, which was planned to be a next-generation, commercially operated reusable launch on: Uncrewed re-usable spaceplane.

RLV Technology Program Phase II ( - End of Decade) In Phase II, large scale hardware will be developed with a focus the X Advanced Technology Demonstrator (ATD) vehicle. The X is an integrated ground and flight operations demonstration of the critical technologies.

The goal of the Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) technology program is formulated, and the primary objectives of RLV are listed. RLV technology program implementation phases are outlined. X advanced technology demonstrator is described.

Program management is addressed. 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.".

NASA's highest priority new activity, the Reusable Launch Vehicle program, is directed toward developing technologies to enable a new generation of space launchers, perhaps but not necessarily with single stage to orbit : The X, a half-scale vehicle, was to feature a lifting-body shape, a new "aerospike" rocket engine, and a rugged metallic thermal protection system.

It was expected to demonstrate in flight the new technologies needed for a Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV). Dryden Home > Collections > Photo Home > X Advanced Technology Demonstrator. The advanced technology demonstrator program, the X, which will last longer than the X program, is divided into the three phases shown in Figure 1–2.

According to NASA's implementation plan, "the X system must prove the concept of a reusable next-generation system by demonstrating key technology, operations, and reliability.

Lockheed Martin may have used information gained from LASRE and the X Advanced Technology Demonstrator to develop a potential future reusable launch vehicle. NASA and Lockheed Martin were partners in the X program through a cooperative agreement. 10/1/ This is an artist's concept of an X Advanced Technology Demonstrator, a subscale protoptye launch vehicle being developed by NASA Lockheed Martin Skunk Works.

(Vehicle configuration current as of 10/97) The X is a subscale prototype of a Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) Lockheed Martin has labeled "Venture Star TM.". NASA began the X program in as part of its Reusable Launch Vehicle program.

It called for the demonstration of a subscale single-stage-to-orbit vehicle. Five companies expressed interest and submitted concepts. Three teams were selected to provide final proposals for half-scale suborbital prototypes of full-scale vehicles.

This artist's rendering depicts the Rockwell International X technology demonstrator. This was to be the basis for a Single-Stage-To-Orbit (SSTO) Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV).

NASA considered design submissions from Rockwell, Lockheed Martin, and McDonnell Douglas. NASA selected Lockheed Martin's design on 2 July This book assesses whether the technology development, test and analysis programs in propulsion and materials-related technologies are properly constituted to provide the information required to support a December decision to build the X, a technology demonstrator vehicle; and suggest, as appropriate, necessary changes in these programs.

This artist's rendering depicts the three designs submitted for the X proposal for a technology demonstrator of a Single-Stage-To-Orbit (SSTO) Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV).

NASA considered design submissions from Rockwell, Lockheed Martin, and McDonnell Douglas. NASA selected Lockheed Martin's design on 2 July The X demonstrator was designed to test a wide range of new technologies including the aerospike engine, that would be used in a future single-stage-to-orbit reusable launch vehicle called the VentureStar.

Due to technical problems with the liquid hydrogen tank, however, the X program was cancelled in February NASA Photo. Description: This artist's rendering depicts the NASA/Lockheed Martin X technology demonstrator for a Single-Stage-To-Orbit (SSTO) Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) at high altitude.

The RLV technology program was a cooperative agreement between NASA and industry. RLV-TD is India's first uncrewed flying testbed developed for the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)s Reusable Launch Vehicle Technology Demonstration is a scaled down prototype of an eventual two-stage-to-orbit (TSTO) reusable launch vehicle.

The RLV-TD successfully completed its first atmospheric test flight on 23 Maywhich lasted for seconds and reached a. NASA's Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) program has dual objectives: to demonstrate technologies leading to a new generation of space boosters capable of delivering payloads at significantly lower cost, and to provide a technology base for development of advanced commercial launch systems that will make U.S.

aerospace manufacturers more competitive in the global market. Data obtained from the technology development program as specified in the following decision criteria will be used to determine whether reusable, operationally efficient components can be built for the TPS and integrated into an X flight test vehicle to support.

The X is a half-scale, suborbital technology demonstrator of a reusable space plane Lockheed Martin calls the "VentureStarTM." Managed by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala., the goal of the $ billion program is to demonstrate advanced technologies that will dramatically increase reliability and lower the cost of putting.

The X was to have been a wedged-shaped subscale technology demonstrator prototype of a potential future Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) that Lockheed Martin dubbed VentureStar.

The company hoped to develop VentureStar early this century. The Reusable Launch Vehicle technology program. Stephen Cook; Conceptual design of two-stage reusable launch systems using X Keisuke Sawada and A Least Cost Reusable Operationally Responsive Space Launch Vehicle Demonstrator.

Ramon Chase and. The X was a technology demonstrator vehicle for the Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV). The RLV technology program was a cooperative agreement between NASA and industry.

The goal of the RLV technology program was to enable significant reductions in the cost of access to space, and to promote the creation and delivery of new space services and.VentureStar was a single-stage-to-orbit reusable launch system proposed by Lockheed Martin and funded by the U.S.

government. The goal was to replace the Space Shuttle by developing a re-usable spaceplane that could launch satellites into orbit at a fraction of the cost.

While the requirement was for an uncrewed launcher, it was expected to carry passengers as cargo.
