Title
(EN) LAUNCH AND FLIGHT CONFIGURATIONS FOR TRANSFER SPACE VEHICLES
(FR) CONFIGURATIONS DE LANCEMENT ET DE VOL POUR VÉHICULES SPATIAUX DE TRANSFERT
Abstract
(EN)
A system for delivery to space on a launch vehicle includes a first payload configured to directly couple to an adapter structure of the launch vehicle, a second payload configured to directly couple to the adapter structure of the launch vehicle, and a tether between the first payload and the second payload. Subsequently to separation from the launch vehicle, the first payload is configured to move relative to the second payload, using the tether, to dock with the second payload.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un système de livraison dans l'espace sur un véhicule de lancement qui comprend une première charge utile conçue pour être accouplée directement à une structure d'adaptateur du véhicule de lancement, une seconde charge utile conçue pour être accouplée directement à la structure d'adaptateur du véhicule de lancement et une attache entre la première charge utile et la seconde charge utile. Consécutivement à une séparation d'avec le véhicule de lancement, la première charge utile est conçue pour se déplacer par rapport à la seconde charge utile, à l'aide de l'attache, pour s'ancrer à la seconde charge utile.
