HCLV Hyperion is a versatile rocket system designed to carry a variety of manned and unmanned payloads into orbit. It’s an expendable heavy class launcher capable of delivering up to ~120 metric tons to 250km circular LEO.
Hyperion has internal launch autopilot accessible by MFD that can put LV into various orbits and can be controlled manually or using dedicated MFD.
There are 3 primary versions of the rocket:
–HCLV-S: Sidemount version for carying spaceplanes into orbit.
–HCLV-2: Inline version with 2 LRBs able to carry 80 tons into LEO
–HCLV-4: Inline version with 4 LRBs able to carry 120 tons into LEO
In addition the high performance EDS upperstage is included to perform various missions beyond low earth orbit.
The custom fairing system allows users to easily define new fairing types, while custom payload adapter support expands versatility of the rocket to acomodate future payloads.
Adjustable height over ground makes it easy to launch from any location/launch pad and Integrated Payload Manager makes payloads easy to handle and deploy.
