Development of commercial Reusable Launch Vehicles (RLVs) remains a great interest to many private companies. The appeal rests in an RLV's ability to support multiple mission types (e.g., cargo and tourism) and amortized development costs over the life of the operational vehicle. Commercial RLV companies plan to use both existing and new technologies in the design/development of the vehicle and its subsystems. RLV Operations and Maintenance (O&M) practices have the potential to affect public safety; therefore, the FAA's Office of Commercial Space Transportation (FAA/AST) is in the process of developing guidelines for RLV O&M practices. These guidelines may be used in evaluating an RLV developer/operator's license application. This Guideline Input and Technical Evaluation Report is intended to capture an initial set of Guideline Inputs (GIs) and Guideline Input Considerations (GICs) ordered around the various subsystems that are likely to be used in RLV O&M.
