초록

A mobile space lift range system using a ground control station and an unmanned airborne vehicle that relayed data to and from a space lift vehicle to control it. The unmanned airborne vehicle may selectively include one or more sensor systems, a radar system, a command and telemetry system, and a user test system. The unmanned airborne vehicle is a high attitude, long endurance vehicle that provides a flexible, mobile range to support launch-anywhere space lift scenarios.

대표
청구항

[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A system for assisting the launch of a vehicle into space, comprising:an unmanned airborne vehicle that flies a controllable flight plan and that comprises a command and telemetry system for communicating with and commanding the vehicle that is to be launched into space; anda ground control station that communicates with and controls the unmanned airborne vehicle and that communicates with and controls the vehicle that is to be launched into space by way of the unmanned airborne vehicle.
