We will begin Phase II by refurbishing the P-7 vehicle into the P-7D configuration to conduct flight tests that will pathfind ORS operations at remote launch sites. We will then develop a next-generation prototype reusable NLV first stage (the P-9) and then use it to conduct another set of rapid turn-around flight tests.
