The use of mass
manufactured NEO Scout
CubeSat's to pioneer space
science data sales
Hypothesis and business plan;
All of the component manufactures of the proposed deep space NEO scout pioneer
the mass manufacture of 10 flight sets of components for 10 spacecraft
At cost place their value and of the value of money through time (interest) sale the
data for each spacecraft over ten years
S or C corporation with shares equaling contributions from each partner from in kind
equipment contributions
Import Export bank financing to those
partners in difficulty with end items
Contributed items;10 flight sets from
each contractor

(A)(1)COTS NEA Imager, e.g. MSSS ECAM
M-50, 10 flight sets contributed by Malin
space flight s systems

Value of 10 ECAM M-50,s ? Lessons
learned by Malin in a first mass
manufacturing experience?



Valued added and price?

(A)(2) JPL Deep Space NanoSat Bus (based
on INSPIRE) 10 flight sets built by a space
act agreement? Or in house?

JPL able and willing?

If space act agreement which
company?

MSFC space act agreement to
transfer Solar Sail manufacture

To which company? (L.Garde)

JPL space act agreement

(A)(2) MSFC ~80 m2 Solar Sail (based on
NanoSail-D) 10 flight sets

(A)(3) JPL Iris, Inspire LGA (2 Pair) +
Microstrip Array HGA, 20 fight sets Iris
LGA and 10 flight sets HGA
Contributed items;10 flight sets from
each contractor

(A)(4)Reaction Wheel Assembly, 3 X 10
flight sets (30)

TRAC Boom Assembly, 2 X 10 flight sets
(20)


Customers; NASA as anchor tenant for data
sales over a decade and hosted payload sales

First Commercial NEO Scout to OSIRIS-Rex target image target and OSIRIS-Rex

Second Commercial NEO Scout to ARM target, characterize the target for safe
rotation rates before ARM launch

third commercial NEO Scout to ARM target, visual of ARM during approach and
capture

Fourth commercial Scout with Mars Rover 2020, performs Phobos and Deimos
reconnaissance
Sun Jammer contractor as future S
corporation partner


L.Garde incorporated
http://www.lgarde.com/space-propulsion.php
Has the potential to be a follow on S corporation partner for larger solar sails
in future production lots with a larger solar sail
Each of these ten spacecraft sells data over a 10 to
12 year period; we are the Intelsat of deep space
science

And each spacecraft launches every year or every other year so NASA is billed accordingly

Deep space CubeSat spacecraft are thought to cost $10 Million each, we believe mass producing
copies of Lunar Scout could beat this price

Lets assume $ 10 million per spacecraft as this is our profit over time

10 X 10 is $100 million our price

If all spacecraft where in flight at the same time with payments billed over 10 years this would
be a $10 million bill,

But not all spacecraft would be in flight at the same time, the bill to the client would be less and
spread over several decades. ****

****** this presents opportunity to us and the decadal survey community and the government, we
could build flight sets 10 through 20 and add in small incremental improvements that get us
closer to Sunjammer class inner solar system missions followed by deeper space
Data sales and hosted payload

The S corporation partners would not mind more immediate cash flow in the
form of hosted payloads or a split payment schedule we received some cash
flow sooner then 10 to 12 years, after all the customer now saves on
“interest”

If a customer wants to buy the spacecraft up front we will oblige (ITAR states
if its in space already?)
