The Titan IIIE rocket, sometimes referred to as the Titan III-Centaur, was launched seven times between 1974 and 1977. It was derived from the Titan IIIC with a Centaur upper stage to boost performance. This three-stage rocket was used by NASA to launch the Voyager space probes to Jupiter and Saturn, two Viking spacecraft, which put instrumented landers on the surface of Mars, and two joint West Germany-U.S. Helios spacecraft used to study solar processes. All seven Titan IIIE launches took place from Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral in Florida.
The Titan family of expendable rockets was extremely successful, with a total of 368 launches between 1959 and 2005. One of the rockets from this family was the Titan IIIC, a space booster used for U.S. Air Force missions. Built by Martin Marietta it first flew on June 18, 1965 and its final flight in March 1982. The Titan IIIC used a Titan III core with two large solid fuel boosters to increase its launch thrust, and hence the maximum payload capability.
