Ares ICBM

Ares
American intercontinental ballistic missile. The Ares single-stage, liquid-propellant ICBM was the objective of propulsion studies at both Aerojet and Rocketdyne.

Status: Cancelled 1964. Payload: 4,000 kg (8,800 lb). Gross mass: 150,000 kg (330,000 lb). Height: 30.00 m (98.00 ft). Diameter: 3.00 m (9.80 ft). Span: 3.00 m (9.80 ft). Apogee: 160 km (90 mi).

The objective was to attain a high enough specific impulse through use of high chamber pressure and a deployable nozzle extension to obtain intercontinental or orbital performance using a single rocket stage. The project was halted when Secretary of Defense McNamara decreed that all future ICBM's would only use solid propellant.

LEO Payload: 4,000 kg (8,800 lb) to a 160 km orbit at 28.50 degrees.



Family: ICBM. Country: USA.
