Atlas with solid-fuel upper stage

Atlas-D Antares-2 (FIRE 2) [NASA]

Atlas-D OV1 (OV1 11, OV1 12 and OV1 86) [USAF]

 

Atlas-F Trident [USAF]

Altair-F Star-17A (RM 20) [USAF]

Atlas-SLV3 Burner-2 (P68-1 payloads) [USAF]

Atlas-F Burner-2 (Radcat and Radsat) [USAF]

 

Atlas-F OV1 (OV1 17, OV1 17A, OV1 18 and OV1 19) [USAF]

Atlas-E OIS (Geosat) [USAF]

Atlas-F SGS-1 (GPS 5) [USAF]

Atlas-E Star-37S-ISS (DMSP-5D2 F11)

Atlas-E Altair-3A (Stacksat) [USAF]

Atlas-H MSD (Parcae 9) [USAF]

The Atlas-D, -E and F vehicles were refurbished Atlas ICBMs (After refurbishment, there were no differences between E and F versions left). The only SLV-3 was a left over vehicle from the PRIME program, only the Atlas-H was built for this purpose.

each OV1 payload had its own OV1 propulsion module
some OV1 missions carried also a suborbital payload (marked with *)


Launch sites:

CC  = Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Eastern Test Range, Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA USA
Va  = Vandenberg AFB, California, USA USA


F  = Failure
P  = Partial Failure
*  = suborbital mission


!  = the vehicle was destroyed due to a collapse of the payload fairing
%  = OV1 7 did not reach orbit
$  = OV1 11 did not reach orbit
&  = NOAA-B did not reach correct orbit, because the fuel of the ISS system
     was depleted too early
