Description: The OmegA is a family of space launch systems developed by Northrop Grumman to meet the requirements of the US Air Force (USAF) Evolved Expandable Launch Vehicle (EELV) program. The OmegA family includes intermediate and heavy variants which are slated for launch in 2021 and 2024 respectively. The intermediate variant will be ready to conduct commercial and military launches in 2022. The rocket configuration features first and second stages powered by CASTOR engines utilizing solid propellant with strap-on boosters. The upper stage is powered by an RL-10C liquid propellant engine. In October 2018 the USAF awarded Northrop Grumman a $792 million for the OmegA rocket family which is aimed at both civilian and military customers.
