McDonnell's study was dated 20 March 1963 and proposed three alternatives, all of which could be boosted by either a Titan 3M or Saturn IB Launch Vehicle, and all of which would be equipped with aft-mounted docking systems. The first two were variants of McDonnell's Gemini capsule, but the third was a new winged spaceplane, capable of accommodating two crew plus four passengers.
