Description: The Aerojet Rocketdyne RL10C is a further variant of the RL10 designed to serve as the upper stage for the OmegA space launch system. The same upper stage may be adopted by the New Glenn and Vulcan Centaur space launch systems also being developed under the US Air Force (USAF) Evolved Expandable Launch Vehicle (EELV) program. The first launch of the RL10C-1 was carried out in 2014 and is expected to support the first launch of the Vulcan Centaur in 2020.
