Boeing SLI concept NASA and the US Air Force announced Tuesday that the two organizations plan to continue joint studies of reusable launch vehicle (RLV) technology, including the possibility of a building a demonstrator vehicle. In a joint statement, NASA and the Air Force announced they agreed with the primary conclusions of a 120-day study by the two organizations, including the possibility of building a demonstrator vehicle that could later be adapted as a launch vehicle to carry cargo and crews. The Air Force will provide a "cadre of experienced people" to work with NASA on joint study efforts. An integrated technology planning effort that addresses the needs of both agencies is also in the works. NASA hopes that the infusion of Air Force technology — and eventually funding — will help support NASA's Space Launch Initiative.
