Excerpt: (U) A. Mission Description: This Advanced Technology Development program develops and demonstrates advanced rocket propulsion and space launch technologies. This program provides the technological step necessary to transition the most promising rocket propulsion and space launch technologies to applications using full-scale, proof-of-principle demonstrations. The projects within this program are structured to support Air Force Space Command’s and Air Combat Command’s mission area requirements for space and missile technologies which include the goals established in the Integrated High Payoff Rocket Propulsion Technology Initiative, a multiagency/ industry effort to focus the development of U.S. rocket propulsion technology. New and improved components will be integrated with the environmentally improved propellants developed in this program to create new propulsion systems for the next generation of launch vehicles and satellites. Anticipated technological advances in this program will improve the performance of expendable systems’ payload capabilities by 21% and reduce the launch and operations and support (O&S) costs by 28%. In a reusable launch system, the anticipated improvements are an increase in payload capability of 170% and a reduction in launch and O&S costs of 79%. The advances in propulsion in this program result from the achievement of the 2010 goals of the Integrated High Payoff Rocket Propulsion Technology Initiative. The development of these technologies has been coordinated with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to eliminate duplication of efforts. The space launch and missile propulsion industry will leverage the technologies from this program to enhance the country’s industrial competitiveness. Note: In FY 1999, Congress added $3 million for Integrated High Payoff Rocket Propulsion Technology (IHPRPT).
