MKS-1 SLS, Multifunctional Space Launch System
Currently/Today, the only way that we know to launch Vehicles or "payload" into Space or at Low earth orbit (suborbital), is using a Rocket which takes off from land place and reaches the preselected "objective". Depending on their "payload" specifications, it is necessary to use a Rocket with special size and features.
The MKS-1 SLS is a concept plane with multifunctional uses, designed like a "Launch-Support" for many different Space Rockets or Special Space & Suborbital vehicles; thought to reach their objectives, decreasing today's costs for launching into Space, these "payloads" with smaller Rockets and lesser fuel, and minimizing the non-reusable parts.
Versatile, adaptable for special Ovi's rocket (equipped with supersonic wings, all controlled by Intelligent Flight Control System (IFCS)) with NASA's CM (Crew Module), NASA's Ares I evo rocket (with "special wings"), ESA's Vega evo rocket (with "special wings"), NASA's X-43a experimental vehicle with "special rocket", Aurora SR-91 experimental vehicle, REL's (Reactions Engines Limited) Skylon experimental vehicle, XLDron M Gravity mass Space Tourism and more potentials "payloads".
It would have a high carry up capacity and thanks to a special support system with configurable anchorages, over guide rails on top of the fuselage, adaptable for many different types of "payloads". Built with ultra-resistant advanced Composite materials (carbon laminate, carbon sandwich, activated carbon, aluminum, titanium, and more…) capable to resist big fatigue, stress and "mechanic efforts"; all of this with a low density and in some sections from the plane these would have the extra-capacity to resist highest temperatures.
The MKS-1 SLS would have an auto-generator electric energy system from heat energy conversion and from combustion of liquefied natural gas (LNG) -also used for turbofan engines mixed with conventional combustible-; to keep the avionic systems and the rocket's combustible temperature in optimal conditions. It also would have a Hyper lift mechanical system -HLMS- to create a dynamic air flow controlled by fly-by-wire system (FBW) and aircraft-computers to prevent a possible stall situation.
Equipped with 11 future Next-Gen's plane engines, 8 ultra high bypass turbofan engines -UHB- localized on the wings structure in double units (B-52 Stratofortress) and 3 engines with adaptive versatile engine technology -ADVENT-localized under fuselage structure in central disposition, used only at takeoff maneuver and in the "detaching phase" like an extra-thrust to reach the right altitude (45,000-50,000 ft).
