SCOUT AEROSPACE LLC
= An Orbital Assets and Infrastructure Company =
What came first, the airplane or the airport?
Orbital hotels, Lagrange Point shipyards, Lunar manufacturing, asteroid mining, and more. Without reliable, reusable, and practical transportation, the logistics and infrastructure needed to see these become a reality will not be possible. To this end, Scout Aerospace LLC has made its long term goal the development and construction of crewed, long term orbital transfer vehicles and cyclers.
Orbital transfer vehicles (OTVs) are small, short to medium range vessels capable of servicing existing orbital assets with repairs and refueling. A satellite serviced by an OTV may be, repaired, refueled or repositioned to extend its mission, saving the owner of the satellite a fortune in recapitalization costs.
WHAT WE DO
Scout's Current Activities
Space Rome wasn't built in a day. Here are some of the ways in which Scout is pursuing its Vision today.
AstroLabe is our small satellite drone concept. It will serve as our Orbital Servicing and Manufacturing (OSAM) and Space Situational Awareness (SSA) technology orbital test-bed. As we acquire and develop new technologies each will be integrated into AstroLabe. We are building the capacity to provide outstanding hardware to companies wishing to perform on-orbit servicing such as observation, inspection, decommissioning, refueling, and repairs.
Scout Aerospace is always on the look out for new opportunities. We are registered with SAMS and CAGE for federal contracting and grants. We have submitted grant proposals to NASA and ARPA-E for photolytic decomposition of high test peroxide, and coherence phase matching of solar power satellites. We are currently reviewing NASA's Technology Transfer Program to bring experimental flight tested products to market.
Space is harsh environment. Atomic oxygen erodes plastics and metals, radiation corrupts data, and unabated heat destroys your hard work. We offer our highly trained and educated team of engineers to solve your aerospace needs. We are educated and trained skills such as radiation protection, aerospace electronics, vibration analysis, heat transfer, orbital mechanics, and more. We include subcontracting and research support among our services.
