The dawn of the entrepreneurial space age—New Space—has been in the making for some years. Now it’s expanding more rapidly than ever, and the space industry is no longer the sole purview of government agencies.
The commercial space industry driven by private organizations – is making giant leaps in space tourism, exploration and satellite technology. Start-ups and small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are disrupting the industry and capturing investors’ imagination. Rapid innovation is essential to keep up with market demand, and it’s imperative to get it right first time.
Large space stations have always traditionally been planned and executed by national space agencies, but with today’s technological advancements, it is possible for private enterprises to launch and assemble large, crew-rate structures into orbit for multiple uses, and to do it profitably.
To combine safety, performance and cost control in these large, complex structures, advanced software must be used to balance the needs of design, simulation, PLM, manufacturing, and other factors to ensure program success.
This roundtable explores what it takes to design and build the large orbital structures that will allow humanity to truly live in space.
