Manned Mars Mission Earth-to-Orbit (ETO) Delivery and Orbit Assembly of the Manned Mars VehicleThe contents of this section contain the initial concepts developed for the In-orbit assembly of a Manned Mars Vehicle and for the Earth-to-Orbit (ETO) delivery of the required hardware and propellant. Two (2)
Mars vehicle concepts (all-propulsive and all-aerobrake) and two (2) ET0 Vehicle concepts were investigated. Both Mars Vehicle concepts are described in Reference 1, and both ETO Vehicle concepts are described in Reference 2. The all-aerobrake configuration reduces the number of launches and time required to deliver the necessary hardware/propellent to orbit. Use of the larger of the 2 ETO Vehicles (HLLV) further reduces the number of launches and delivery time; however, this option requires a completely new vehicle and supporting facilities.
