50 Years Ago Today: Riding Piggyback on an ICBM

Excerpt:
The OV1 Series

The OV or “Orbital Vehicle” satellite series, which was first known by the name SATAR, was initiated by the Air Force Office of Aerospace Research back in the early 1960s as a means of orbiting scientific and technological experiments at minimal costs. To save money, this series of satellites was typically flown as secondary payloads on various USAF missions. The first series of satellites in this program, designated OV1, was specifically designed to ride piggyback on surplus Atlas ICBMs being flown to support other programs such as the USAF’s ABRES (Advanced Ballistic ReEntry System) flights. The ABRES program was started in 1963 with the goal of testing ICBM warhead technologies and assessing various penetration aids under realistic ballistic flight conditions. Typically these flights had excess payload capability available and they offered an inexpensive launch option for secondary payloads like OV1. The Atlas had already launched its first satellite back in 1958 as part of Project SCORE (see “Vintage Micro: The Talking Atlas”), was used to orbit America’s manned Mercury spacecraft and was already being used with a variety of upper stages to serve as a satellite launch vehicle so this versatile rocket was certainly suited to the task.

The OV1 satellites were built by the manufacturer of the Atlas ICBM, General Dynamics (whose space division was sold to Lockheed in 1993 and is now part of the aerospace giant, Lockheed Martin). Most of the OV1 satellites were of a standardized design consisting of a cylinder with hemispherical caps having a total length of 1.39 meters and a diameter of 0.69 meters. With a mass usually less than 100 kilograms and a volume of 0.17 cubic meters available in the cylindrical center section for about 36 kilograms experiment hardware, the OV1 was a microsatellite by today’s definition.
