Lockheed's company-funded design study was interesting but never seemed to gain much support from potential customers. In 1990, the Lockheed Skunk Works attempted to interest NASA in an optionally manned High Altitude Atmospheric Research Platform (HAARP) to support upper atmospheric ozone studies to altitudes of at least 100,000 feet. Despite seriously considering a variety of configurations, NASA elected not to fund HAARP and the project faded into obscurity.
