  1. 1. The ISECGGlobal Exploration Roadmap (GER) ESA/ Bernhard Hufenbach Head of Space Exploration Architecture Office Human Spaceflight and Operations Directorate 23 Feb 2012 1
  2. 2. GER Purpose• Building on the Global Exploration Strategy, create framework for inter- agency discussion on – Common goals and objectives – Long-range human exploration scenarios – Coordination of exploration preparatory activities• Inform agency decisions affecting exploration preparatory activities 2
  3. 3. GER Long-range Strategy• Start from ISS• Expand human presence into the solar system in a step-wise way• Enabling human mission to Mars as long-term horizone goal• Optional pathways reflecting feasible mission sequences Mars: Ultimate Deep Space Habitat at Goal for All Earth-Moon Lagrange Point1 Scenarios Lunar Surfac Asteroid LEOLEO & ISS e Lunar Mars Earth- Surfac Surface Moon Astreroi e or Lagrange d L1 Mars Next Steps Orbit Near Term Focus on Guiding Capabilities, Long-term Strategies are Discovery Driven 3   Technologies and Leveraging ISS and Enhanced by Emerging Technologies
  4. 4. Common Goals Common Goals drive what we do in space and how we create benefits to society • Search for Life • Extend Human Presence • Develop Exploration Technologies and Capabilities • Perform Science to Support Human Exploration • Stimulate Economic Expansion • Perform Space, Earth, and Applied Science • Engage the Public in Exploration • Enhance Earth Safety 4
  5. 5. Strategic PrinciplesStrategic principles drive development oftechnical feasible and programmaticallyimplementable optional mission scenario Asteroid Next• Capability driven framework• Exploration value• International partnerships• Robustness Moon Next• Affordability• Human-robotic partnership 5
  6. 6. Informing Partnerships
  7. 7. Key Challenges for Roadmapping Effort• Agencies have different priorities for space exploration: How to converge on a common plan? GES serves as common reference framework Plans of each agency are reflected Major effort devoted to consensus building Analysis work is openly shared Emphasis is put on identifying commonalities (e.g. goals, strategic principles)• Specific interests and committed resources of agencies in roadmapping effort are different: Does the roadmap reflect the views of all ISECG agencies? Engagement and participation at different levels possible Work performed in full transparency to all ISECG members Best idea counts irrespective of origin 7
