I am looking for detailed descriptions of the Convair Hyperion nuclear interplanetary spacecraft. I have several fragmentary sources of information, and they disagree with each other.
My sources are the article at astronautix.com and the attached illustrations.
http://www.astronautix.com/h/hyperionsustainer.html
My searches at NASA's technical report server have been fruitless.
Can anybody please point me at some documents?

most on Convair Hyperion is under term "EMPIRE studies" to find on NTRS
and try ""General Dynamics" instead of Convair

it was part of proposals under the 1960s EMPIRE studies for Manned Mars fly-by
next to that you can find Illustration to Convair Hyperion and there EMPIRE study
at SanDiegoAirSpaceMuseum Flickr Homepage

mostly under "General Dynamics" or "Atlas Collection"
or direct on there Photostream good luck it only 2448 pages...
