Boer_SHIPinSpace_Conferenza di Napoli

  1. 1. 44 PASSENGERS + 4 P/L’s SUB-ORBITAL REUSABLE BLASTING SURVIVAL VEHICLE 22 October 2014 – Naples Conference: «How to create jobs with the new Aerospace Industry»
  2. 2. S/S Equipment bay Light weight shock-absorber Fairing made up by Carbon Fibre (CFRP) sandwich panels
  3. 3. Pod Equipment bay (parachutes, batteries, tanks,...) Light weight shock-absorber Cone pyro-separation detail Panel for S/S Equipment in the most protected area
  4. 4. The Pod •Typical accomodation of 4 Passengers •It is the only pressurized part of the SHIPINSPACE vehicle •Seat design tailored to extra large people having seats width of 650 mm against the 450 typical of an economic class. •Seats are designed in such a way Passengers can withstand lateral loads (0,5g) •Seats packaging can rotate along the axis normal to the window S/S’s volume (unpressurized)
  5. 5. The Pod The internal configuration (shown in this artistic view) will have COSMO-like internal wall painting with small led providing a unique suggestion scenario. Passengers will have the impression to be in a continuous media with the outside view. Mission screen with major parameters will be embedded in a seat packaging arm.
  6. 6. View of the Passengers close to the window The 800 mm diameter window, 7 times larger than a wide-body Aircraft one, will permit an outstanding view of outside even for the 2 Passengers close to the window. During the 6 min of 0-g the Passengers can move freely inside the Module getting their preferred outside picture
  7. 7. View of the Passengers located far from the hatch port During the 6 min of 0-g at the top of the Parabolic flight Passengers experience weightlessness in free flying inside the Pod. An ergonomic study could verify that the space around the Passengers is higher than that of a business class of a wide-body aircraft
  8. 8. Mission details Slight rotation along Z axis to let Passengers having the same view Manoeuvering phase Landing phase
  9. 9. Passengers configuration during descent and landing The loads during the descent are normal to this figure plane. The Pods in the 2° floor and in the middle have only 2 passengers who experience loads with the back normal to loads (most optimized configuration). The Pods in the 2° floor on the right and left side have loads perfectly in line with the back. All others Pods have loads with about 80% of the load in line with the back and 20% lateral. Anti-g suits and lateral head stopper on the seats will be enough to counteract an about 0.5g lateral load.
  10. 10. The Passengers accomodation during flight During the 40 min of flight the Passengers can screen on a dedicated monitor the flight data such as altitude, speed, acceleration ratio. In case a life risk contingency is detected the Passengers Module can be pyrotechnically cut and the Pods free from descending independently one another, by means of embedded parachutes. This feature, unique to the SHIPinSPACE technology could have saved the life of both the Challenger and Columbia teams. Emergency pyrotechnic cut
  11. 11. Mission preparation Passengers get trained during a 5 sessions trial spread over a period of 2 years on machines like this centrifuge to accomodate people the same way as they will be in the SHIPinSPACE Vehicle.
  12. 12. Mission preparation Passengers experience the same level of loads that will encounter during the flight. Maximum acceleration will be 2.0g during ascent phase at the end of the propulsion phase and 2.5g during maximum drag along the descent.
  13. 13. Operations after landing After landing the Vehicle is tilted from horizontal to a vertical configuration by means of a crane mounted on a mobile gantry. 2 pivot points are fixed on ground on the Vehicle in correspndence of 2 trunnions.
  14. 14. Operations after landing The vertical configuration is the most appropriate to get in/out of the Passengers and to spend comfortably the time needed for the flight equipment checks, Passengers fastening, Pod hatch closure and Pod pressurization.
  15. 15. Operations after landing Operations during the on/out board rely on a gantry having 3 independent floors with a fixed part and some mobile plateforms that once closed permit accessibility operations to be made in parallel, then much optimising the time needed to get in/out of the Passengers
  16. 16. Operations before take-off The crane will set the Vehicle from horizontal to vertical in such a way to be located on the launch pad in correspondence of the 4 clamps
  17. 17. Take-off Arms open 5 sec before take-off On-ground clamps open only after main chamber pressure is checked for each engine
  18. 18. FEM static analysis on Passenger Module
  19. 19. Modal analysis on Passenger Module
  20. 20. Transfer functions for load at Z direction
  21. 21. Margin of Safety for principal components
  22. 22. The role of CFD in the development of a new concept of space transportation system
  23. 23. Lofting the wing then proofing at approach speed flight condition varying A0A, polar plot of the configuration was drawn up Main results: Isolated wing Cp and polar plots for different angle of attack from -15° to +15° were quickly obtained for the isolated wing capable of reaching trim condition at around 5.5°. Wing sizes 26m in span with a lifting surface of 232m2. AR is around 3. Wing load is 1177.2N/m2
  24. 24. Main Results: CRUISE GLIDING at MACH 0.3 Results in term of Coefficient of pressure was obtained 3 deg 6 deg 9 deg 12 deg 15 deg
  25. 25. Main Results: CRUISE GLIDING at MACH 0.3 Friction velocity path shows the evident stall at tip at 15°. This stall doesn’t involve control surface. 15 deg
  26. 26. CHART: HIGHLIGHTS Executive Summary Phase1: Business Plan based on a $5M investment
  27. 27. Marketing analysis This is the target market SiS is pursuing
  28. 28. Marketing analysis  With SHIPinSPACE access to Space is not an exclusive of the richest of the Planet anymore  By supposing that (much conservatively) 1/1000 can have an interest to live a Space venture we can potentially count on 7350 Passengers per year, the large difference between Offer and Demand means an ordering book for many years to come  Once safe Spaceships will be able to operate weekly the Space Tourism will be considered an ordinary enjoyment Adventure and will quickly become a “social brand” and the need to experience it “as our friends have enjoyed”. Numbers that look too much optimistic today will be considered normal when many Spaceships will be operating  It has been the same at the dawn of Aviation where the increment of Passengers has far overcome any prediction
  29. 29. The business potential  With a capacity as high as 44 Passengers, SHIPinSPACE can open the way to a new market with 2228 Passengers yearly  With a ticket price as low as $50k SHIPinSPACE will also lead the market towards a Space Tourism that will much involve Customers categories made up by passionate people wishing to live a unique venture that also includes the 2 years of training and preparation before the flight  The SHIPinSPACE project opens the way to another scale of business made up by 2288 Flight Passengers and other say 7000 persons, friends/family that will follow with the Passengers to the Spaceport, a figure that in terms of hotel accommodation, souvenir gifts, and other consumer deeds can much enlarge the revenue of the Company and the surrounding local business (bar, restaurants,…)
