  • Are Commercial Satellite/Space Markets Fading?

    Stratolaunch Systems

    Why go into space for commercial reasons?  It might have been clear from 1956 to 1969, however today many are skeptical and question the economic drivers?  So far all the satellite and robotic probes have shown no other civilization exist in this Galaxy except planet Earth.

  • Cybersecurity probably an issue with ViaSat-3 Satellite global broadband Wi-Fi

    ViaSat Inc. is a global broadband service and technology company, and the British firm Cobham, will work together to create new and innovative product and service offerings to the Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) market. The first satellite terminal product speculated to

  • DoD pushes SpaceX to win U.S. Military Space Contracts

    Reports have surfaced that the U.S. Defense Department (DoD) will push aside U.S. and Russian joint space programs and promote Elon Musk’s SpaceX venture as a competitor to win U.S. Military contracts. SpaceX will be in direct competition with the reliable joint venture known as the United Launch Alliance, which dominates existing military satellite launch missions. ULA is a proven launch joint venture between Boeing Company and Lockheed Martin Corporation. The U.S. military wants to increase GPS satellite launches as well as cyber defenses. On February 2, 2015, the President of the U.S will announce new programs to protect U.S. intelligence satellites from cyberattacks. The DoD is spending $7.1 billion on military space in the upcoming budget for 2016.

     

    It is expected that Musk can bid on new military launches at lower prices and create competition in the market. In addition, the U.S. has an objective to replace Russian-made engines used on the Delta IV and V ULA missions. It is clearly a political strategy to continue to lower the defense budget and by using private industry for military space related missions. SpaceX, a Silicon Valley venture start-up of Draper Fisher Jurvetson, began its venture with heavy funding from the U.S. Government. Experts in the Defense sector have questioned the reliability of SpaceX launch systems.

  • SpaceX again outplays Lockheed for billion dollar ISS Cargo Shipments

    NASA-The National Aeronautics and Space Administration made a decision in secret to eliminate Lockheed Martin (LM) from the $14 billion contract for the NASA space project. This is the third major multibillion dollar contract that LM has lost in the last three months and is a major blow to its investment in robotic vehicles, reusable space tugs and in-orbit refueling capabilities for deep space manned and unmanned missions.

  • SpaceX Launches Deep Space Solar-storm Observatory ©

    Space Exploration Technologies Corporation is an American space transport Services Company headquartered in Hawthorne, California, USA.  SpaceX launched the DSCOVR (Deep Space Climate Observatory) satellite aboard a reusable Falcon 9 late evening on February 11, 2015.  DSCOVR will travel for a spot almost a million miles away known as "Lagrange point 1”, or "L1.”  L1 is a stable place between the gravities of Earth and the Sun that is outside of our earth's magnetic environment.  DSCOVR will observe Earth for 110 days surveying solar winds, which are capable of disrupting aviation frequencies, electrical power grids, and GPS.

  • US Executive Orders and Big Data Networks to all points

    Central Executive Power

    The Executive Branch of the US Government has made Computing Power as a major focus to control the High Technology Life Cycle and to further extend its Big Data initiatives globally. The Executive Order, which is not binding or funded by the US Congress, but sets an agenda for Silicon Valley firms to be mindful that the US Federal government is the “engine for technology innovation and growth.”-certainly an “overreach approach” to the American free enterprise system of High Technology growth based on innovation and private investment start-up models.

  • USAF SpaceX Certification Completed

    On May 26, under an updated agreement that streamlines the certification process, the U.S. Air Force certified SpaceX to compete for government space launches. The first proposal that SpaceX can provide a competitive bid is June 2015 for GPS III launch services.  SpaceX, with its Falcon 9 launch vehicle, can now compete for national security space launches against United Launch Alliance, the Boeing-Lockheed Martin team that currently have demonstrated a solid operational record on Air Force spy satellite launches.

    Boeing and Lockheed Martin (ULA) seeks non-Government NRO rocket business

    United Launch Alliances (ULA) is rapidly attempting to be viewed by the DoD as not only a “dependable private company” but also willing to drop a dependable Russian manufactured rocket engine. In all facets of US business today, companies must be viewed as “politically correct.”
