Предприятие. Virgin Galactic. [Редактировать]

Компания, входящая в Virgin Group и планирующая организовывать туристические суборбитальные космические полёты и запуски небольших искусственных спутников. В будущем компания планирует предложить своим клиентам и орбитальные полёты. На сегодня приняты заявки более чем от 450 человек и более 150 человек внесли деньги на депозит. Сам полёт представляет собой подъём до 16-километровой отметки, затем происходит отстыковка космолёта SpaceShipTwo от самолёта-разгонщика WhiteKnightTwo, дальнейший путь он проделывает самостоятельно. Время полета — 2,5 часа, из них в невесомости — 5-6 минут. На борту космолёта может находиться до восьми человек одновременно: двое пилотов и шесть пассажиров.

12015-01-24. GeoOptics продолжает разработку орбитальной группировки и расширяет партнерство с другими компаниями.
CICEROКоммерческая компания GeoOptics начала поиск партнеров по построению и запуску низко орбитальной группировки из малых аппаратов под общим названием Community Initiative for Continuous Earth Remote Observation (CICERO). Компания анонсировала производство и запуск 24 аппаратов которые будут посредством измерения уровня радиозатемнения сигнала измерять температуру атмосферы. В планах компании запускать по 6 аппаратов за один раз.
Компания планирует начать запуски через 18 месяцев после того как соберет необходимые средства. По предварительным данным каждый аппарат будет весить около 100 кг. и доставляться на орбитe при помощи системы воздушного старта оператора Virgin Galactic.Тэги: GeoOpticsVirgin Galactic
22015-06-26. OneWeb заключила контракт с Virgin Galactic на запуск малых аппаратов.
Virgin Galactic заключила контракт на запуск 39 малых аппаратов компании OneWeb. Это заключение является первым контрактом компании подобного рода. Средством выведения аппаратов будет служить система воздушного старта под общим наименованием LauncherOne. Запуски должны пройти в течении ближайших 5-и лет. При этом, во время каждого пуска будет выводиться от одного до трех аппаратов на низкую околоземную орбиту. Virgin Galactic анонсировала планы по разработке LauncherOne в июле 2012 года. Двух ступенчатая ракета, будет стартовать с разработанного компанией самолета WhiteKnightTwo. Система позволит выводить на низкую орбиту до 22 кг. полезной нагрузки. Стоимость пуска составит 10 млн. долл. Тэги: Virgin GalacticWorldVu Satellites Ltd
32015-09-16. Virgin Galactic близка к удвоению энергоэффективности своей ракеты.
Virgin Galactic объявила о скором окончании работ по удвоению энергоэффективности своего ракета-носителя LauncherOne. В компании также обнародовали данные о том, что существующая версия ракеты сможет выводить до 200 кг на солнечно-синхронную орбиту, а стоимость ее пуска составит около 10 млн. долл. (с учетом всех затрат связанных с осуществлением воздушного пуска и сроком пуска в 2016 году). В тоже самое время, модифицированное изделие будет способно выводить до 400 кг.
Virgin Galactic также раскрыла технические решения, которые она будет использовать в модифицированной ракете носителе. В частности, компания нарастит размер баков с горючим и окислителем оставив все остальные параметры РН без изменений. Кроме этого, в компании задумались о расширении своего самолетного парка и планируют купить дополнительные транспортные средства, что позволит ей наращивать темпы пусков.

42015-10-15. НАСА анонсировало заключение контрактов на запуск малых космических аппаратов.
НАСА объявило о том что выделяет порядка 17.1 млн. долл. компаниям-изготовителям ракет сверхлегкого класса. При этом в агентстве отдельно подчеркнули что это будут запуски исключительно малых КА. В качестве исполнителей контракта выбраны Firefly Space Systems, Rocket Lab и Virgin Galactic. Запуски будут профинансированы в рамках программы Education Launch of Nanosatellite. Что характерно, никакая из компаний пока что не осуществила ни одного запуска своих ракет. Однако, НАСА на вопросы по этому поводу ответило, что они осознают все риски которые связанны с этим фактом, но готовы пойти на него.

52015-12-11. США решили упростить работу коммерческих компаний с ISRO.
FAA и International Space Policy Working Group (ISPWG) рекомендовали U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) допустить ракеты космического агентства Индии на рынок средств выведения и убрать требование по обязательному разрешению на запуски спутников произведенных в США при помощи индийских средств выведения. В своей рекомендации FAA особо отметила что в близлежащей перспективе для американских компаний очень важно иметь возможность запускать легкие аппараты по доступной цене.
Вместе с тем, со стороны американских производителей уже высказывается недовольство этим решением поскольку многие из них делают ставку именно на сегмент рынка пусковых услуг связанных с полезными нагрузками до 400 кг. При этом, они отдельно подчеркивают, что в ближайшие 18-24 месяца на рынке будет уже порядка трех-четырех американских компаний которые будут вынужденны бороться за заказы не только между собой, но и с иностранными компаниями.Тэги: Космическое агентство ИндииСерия РН PSLVVirgin Galactic
62016-05-24. Arianespace будет использовать систему отделения Ruag Space при выведении космических аппаратов OneWeb.
