TRACK 1 - DESIGN & MAKE

Before we can send anything or travel to space, we need to design, fabricate, and construct the spacecraft, launch vehicles, and equipment required. We need to build the rockets, assemble and install the components, equip the spacecraft, and prepare for launch. Often, the proposed parts are fabricated using novel materials with little shared or pre-existing body of expertise, employ processes not previously used, and developing methods to assemble or service multi-million (or even billion) dollar assets. In this track, we will examine some of the challenges in realizing the production of spacefaring vessels that will carry us beyond the limitations of the Earth.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Reduce the number of physical tests required to evolve materials & manufacturing processes proposed for your designs
  • Predict and evaluate manufacturing effects on product performance, to resolve any defects prior to committing to the final design
  • Enable an extended-enterprise framework for effective collaboration between design and manufacturing stakeholders
  • Optimize and validate maintenance, repair, installation, decommissioning, or remanufacturing operations upfront
