dc.description.abstractWe present a design for taking advantage of the Boeing inertial upper Stage (IUS) to provide a means of launching small satellites as passengers on a Titan IV-IUS launch of a 1775 kg communications satellite. An overview of a design to use the extra propulsive capability of the IUS to place small satellites into orbit is discussed. It is our proposal to have small satellites travel with the IUS into geostationary orbit and then release the satellites after the main satellite has been released. Alternatively, several small satellite buses could be stacked together on a dedicated mission to launch a series of small or microsatellites into any desired orbit including interplanetary missions. This design project was part of a joint space engineering class offered by Boeing, University of Central Florida and Florida Institute of Technology. ©2004 Copyright SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering.en_US
