Responsive Space® Conference 200
9

April 27 - April 30, 2009, Los Angeles, CA

       

 

Meeting the Needs of Users and Industry

If Responsive Space is to survive and prosper it has to meet the needs of two diverse groups – the user community (military, civilian, and educational) that needs to get things in space rapidly and affordably and the industrial community that needs to be able to make a profit fulfilling those needs. This leads to central issues that we hope to address at RS7. What is affordable? $25 million? $100 million? How do we create affordable access to space, both for primary and secondary payloads? How does industry make money in Responsive Space? How do we manufacture truly low cost satellites and what are the business opportunities that these satellites can fulfill?


With this broad objective, we again solicit papers on all aspects of Responsive Space:

 

Business — How do we make money on Responsive Space? Is there a business case for “low-cost, instant gratification”? What does “low-cost” mean to the builder and to the user?

Missions and Applications — What are the business opportunities for commercial, civil, military, and educational missions?

CONOPS — How does Responsive Space work for the end user who doesn’t care about space? If we have instant replacement for destroyed military satellites, how do we use them?

Launch — Where are we (or where aren’t we) with respect to responsive, low-cost access to space? Are the Russians and Chinese the only ones who will have launch-on-demand?

Technology — Where are we in plug-and-play; flexible, multi-use systems; low-cost components; software-driven systems; standards and procedures?

Mission and Systems Engineering — What is the status of responsive mission design, measures of effectiveness, orbits, and getting information to the end user within hours of an unexpected event?

Education and Motivation — How do we both educate and motivate the coming generation of space technologists? How do we use Responsive Space to convince young professionals that space is the place to build a career?
