Abstract

The history of small, secondary payload accommodations on early ATLAS boosters is reviewed. Design and flight operations concepts for small payloads on current ATLAS launch vehicles are presented and discussed. ATLAS launch vehicle system capabilities are presented in terms of launch site integration schedules and the excess performance which will be available to launch small payloads.
