WP1 - Applications

WP1 - Applications

This work package applies to type 1 vehicle (for local suborbital flights) and type 3 vehicle (servicing Low Earth Orbit).

You will address one of the following topics:

  1. For type 1 vehicle, define applications, other than carrying passengers, that could be proposed, using a suborbital vehicle, by addressing one of the following topics:
    • Define the engineering aspects of small scientific and/or technological payloads for this platform: consider the constraints such as mass, power and thermal budgets. Define the interfaces, the safety aspects, the human factor considerations,
    • Or Define experiments which could benefit from longer very low g-level period during one single parabola (circa 4 minutes), being inspired by applications performed on-board Airbus Zero G, sounding rockets and the ISS,
    • Or Define any other applications, not necessarily scientific or technological (for example art and cultural, business applications etc).


  2. For type 3 vehicle, define feasible applications on board a manned vehicle serving low-Earth orbit with atmospheric re-entry, in addition to the basic mission of transporting passengers to and from space stations, by addressing one of the following topics:
    • Definition of ancillary missions such as cargo transport, medical evacuations and other activities that can be carried out as a passenger on the basic mission,
    • Or Definition of additional missions requiring the flight to be extended by a few weeks in autonomous mode (e.g. laboratory experiments, weightless manufacturing, inspection of in-orbit infrastructure, repairs) and definition of functions that would enable the flight to be extended by a few weeks in autonomous mode without the need to dock with a space station.
