"The information presented in this report is divided into three categories. The first category relates vehicle burnout conditions to mission requirements. Seven diagrams are provided which present mission parameters as a function of burnout conditions for earth bound, circular orbit and escape trajectories. These data furnish the designer with the vehicle burnout requirements for any of the mission categories mentioned. The data are not restricted to minimum energy trajectories. The second category of information presented relates to the transfer from actual burnout velocity to impulsive velocity. A single empirical curve based on vehicle and trajectory characteristics is presented to perform this transformation. The conversion from impulsive velocity requirements to minimum vehicle gross weight comprises the third category of information presented. A technique for the determination of velocity distrubution for minimum gross weight is indicated. These data cover the range of both chemical and nuclear power plants."
