OV1 21P with LOADS 2 mass model
The OV1 (Orbiting Vehicle 1) were small research satellite to be launched piggy back on Atlas ICBM test flights. They consisted in general of the OV1 satellite and the OV1-PM propulsion module to reach orbit. In some cases, the PM did also carry an research payload (OV1 17A, OV1 20, OV1 21).
