Projects

Capture-less Orbital Debris Management Systems (CODMS)

Using cubesats and smallsats to cost effectively reduce the orbital debris threat in LEO.  The goal is to remove a 50 kg object for less than $100,000.  Patent pending

Cubesat Builder Online App

Demonstration using pure Javascript, and three.js to create a cubesat builder, complete with component sourcing and project sequencing features. Use the contact form at the button below to stay informed.

Vestal Lunar HeroX Competition

Using Starship's main tanks and engines as a reusable OTV, you can carry a large lunar lander back and forth from LEO.  The "Vestal Lunar" concept imagines a tourist service using this concept.

Some Older Concepts

Some are no longer relevant, but some parts (widgets) may be combinable into new concepts.

  

L4 Asteriod Prospector

Some has speculated that there are thousands of objects in similar orbits here. The key is to find those that are in a very similar plane to Earth and closer to the center of L4 or L5 the better.
