Markets in Motion: Developing Markets in Low Earth Orbit

3,524 views

Published on

Increased commercial activity in space has gradually transformed low Earth orbit into an emerging market. This session will focus on four development areas—biological and pharmaceutical, Earth imaging, materials science, and space transportation—where companies are finding and targeting customer groups that have the potential to develop into market sectors in low Earth orbit.

  24. 24. Alpha Space Test and Research Alliance – Markets in Motion
  25. 25. Who is Alpha Space? • Alpha Space Test and Research Alliance (Alpha Space) owns and will operate the first commercial facility at the ISS known as the Materials International Space Station Experiment (MISSE) • Alpha Space was formed using a business model to support the commercialization of Low Earth Orbit • Materials Science Testing at the ISS gives researchers unprecedented insight to experiments • Benefits space programs and on-earth applications
  26. 26. The Opportunity • Materials Science Testing in Space has been done by NASA since the Apollo Era – Engineers tested Sputnik, Satellites, Apollo 12 – Surveyor 3 lander, MEEP – 8 Previous MISSE Missions 4,000 samples from 2001-2013 – NASA utilized X-37B Spaceplane • NASA provided an opportunity to commercialize Materials Testing in Space and created an emerging market
  27. 27. Market Attractiveness • NASA and Government agencies have made a tremendous investment in the development and sustainment of the International Space Station • Investors and entrepreneurs are drawn to this new market • Because the infrastructure exists, the Alpha Space business model allows us to open access to space for a much smaller incremental cost than historical materials science missions
  28. 28. The Benefits • Through our Cooperative Agreement with NASA, for the first time, access to testing in space is not limited to a NASA or Government Agency experiment • Alpha Space offers commercial access to any private entity or person, as well as Government Agencies • Condensed and focused schedule for integration – Alpha Space provides Turn-Key services • NASA benefits from enhancements derived though private investment • Competition drives innovative cost solutions
  29. 29. Design Improvements
  30. 30. Improvements
  31. 31. Materials Testing Environment • MISSE is fixed to the exterior of the ISS • Experiments endure extreme levels of: – atomic oxygen​ – Ultraviolet (UV) radiation​ – ionizing radiation​ – ultrahigh vacuum (UHV)​ – charged particles​ – thermal cycles​ – electromagnetic radiation​ – micrometeoroids • All with little-to-no contamination • MISSE yields accelerated and accurate testing results for experiments varying from space suits and flight hardware to car paint and electronics
  32. 32. Location
  33. 33. Enhanced Services • Contamination Protection (Closure during contamination-contributing events and going to and from space) • Temperature Data • Solar Angle Data for Zenith (deep space facing) carriers • Contamination Monitoring • Orbital Parameters (ISS location around the Earth) • ISS orientation in its orbit • Monthly Photographs • UV Sensor
  34. 34. New Options- Services • Telescience Resource Kit (TReK) • Data and Power Connections • Ground Services – Gas Purge, Storage • Sensor suite- Atomic Oxygen, Radiation, Contamination, Solar
  35. 35. Benefits of Materials Testing in Space • Product discriminator (Space Tested) • Affordable • Accelerate corrosion processes utilizing Space Environment for expedited results​ • Almost impossible to duplicate all aspects of the space environment at the same time on the ground​ – Combined action of atomic oxygen, thermal cycling, radiation, ultrahigh vacuum unique to Space​ • Atomic oxygen corrosion - Found in Space but not typically found on the earth​ • Long duration simulated Space environment would be expensive on the ground and could exceed the cost of actual Space environment testing​
  36. 36. Next Steps • Through our privately-owned MISSE Facility, you can send your sample/experiment/payload to the ISS • Evaluate the performance, stability, and long-term survivability of materials and components • We are scheduled to launch the facility and a series of experiments in September 2017 on SpaceX 13 • Currently accepting commercial clients
