Strong incentive exists for private industry to master launch reusability and open up commercial space opportunities, and collaboration will be key to overcoming many of the challenges and limitations, experts from the world’s leading commercial space launch companies said during the “Launch 2020” forum Sept. 13 at AIAA SPACE 2016 in Long Beach, California.
“Space 2.0 is the new gold rush of space,” said Steinmeyer, director of business development for Orbital ATK’s Launch Vehicle Division, referring to the idea that the main impetus for much of today’s space activity and growth no longer comes from the U.S. government, but instead from the commercial sector.
Steinmeyer noted that the recently merged Orbital ATK is involved in all segments of the market.
“We’re not only mining in Space 2.0, but we’re selling equipment to the miners as well,” .
Steinmeyer described Orbital ATK’s air-launched Pegasus as the world’s first commercially developed space launch vehicle and said that its launch platform has been “reused successfully over 40 times.” Upcoming missions for Pegasus, he noted, include the Cygnus mission for Earth Observation for NASA, as well NASA’s ICON mission next year.
