    Title

    Small Launchers: Concepts and Operations

    Description

    Discussion of existing, planned and future Launchers for small payloads ranging from 1500 kg to as low as 1 kg into Low Earth Orbit. Includes innovative solutions such as airborne systems, evolutions from sub-orbital concepts, combinations of existing / emerging elements and new elements, reusable, partially reusable and expendable concepts, and flexible, highly responsive concepts. Includes mission operations, design, development, and specific constraints.
