Family: Miscellany. Country: USA. Status: Study 1961. Other Designations: Space Launch System A-410.

In 1961 the Air Force completed studies on a family of advanced heavy-lift launch vehicles for use in the late 1960's and on. The smallest identified member of this family, selected to place the Air Force Lunex lunar lander re-entry vehicle in a low earth orbit for initial tests, was the A-410. This evidently consisted of a smallish Lox/LH2 stage supplemented by solid fuel booster rockets.
