Russia to Develop Hypersonic Satellite Launcher

RIA Novosti said:

Russia's NPO Molniya space design bureau is designing a future hypersonic pilotless booster designated Hammer, capable of putting satellites into orbit, according to documents obtained by RIA Novosti.

"The first stage of the project has been designed for the internal and external configuration of the Hammer hypersonic pilotless booster. It will be capable of carrying small satellites of up to 800 kg into orbits from 200-500 km," the documents say.
