Convair was an American aircraft manufacturing company that later expanded into rockets and spacecraft. Convair's Atlas rocket was originally developed in 1957, and eventually transitioned into a civilian launch vehicle, which was used for the first orbital manned U.S. space flights during Project Mercury in 1962 and 1963.
