At intermediate energies it appears advantageous to work without partial wave decomposition and use directly the momentum vectors. We derived a finite set of coupled Lippmann-Schwinger equations using helicities. They can be used for any type of realistic NN forces, which are given in operator form. As an example we have chosen the Bonn OBEPR NN potential.
