Abstract:

This paper describes a concept for a rocket-powered troop transport which may potentially evolve from the reusable booster of tomorrow. The VTOL rocket concept is based on the premise that the initial reusable booster, sized for a payload of approximately 800,000 pounds-toorbit, is also designed for land recovery.
