Lockheed's EEOED was a three-crew Discovery-type re-entry vehicle. Unlike other concepts, it was equipped with a wide 1 m diameter hatch and provided a pressurized shirt-sleeve enivronment for the three crew. New lightweight heat shield technologies would, it was claimed, make possible a total mass for three crew less than that of the original one-crew Mercury capsule. Mass per crew: 413 kg.
Craft.Crew Size: 3. Total Length: 3.7 m. Maximum Diameter: 2.9 m. Total Mass: 1,240 kg. Main Engine Propellants: Solid.
