The feasibility of a single OOS configuration capable of performing the combined DODNASA mission requirements has been assessed. Two vehicle configurations have been identified, either of which can accomplish the mission spectrum when operated in a combination of single-stage reusableexpendable and tandem reusable two stages modes. Supporting missionoperational requirements, evolutionary vehicle conceptual designs, and resultant performance have been developed to support this conclusion. A representative development program, costing data, and technology for these veicles have bee specified. A major problem area, that of utilizing the space-based operational mode, has been identified and recommended for follow-on study. Author
