KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. (NASA PR) – NASA’s Commercial Crew Program and The Boeing Company are focusing on the Launch Vehicle Adapter design as they close in on plans for the component that will connect the company’s CST-100 capsule to the United Launch Alliance Atlas V booster which will lift it into orbit. NASA’s Partner Integration Team, also called a PIT crew, is working with Boeing to successfully complete a preliminary design review for the adapter at the end of this month.

The CST-100, short for Crew Space Transportation-100, is designed to carry astronauts to the International Space Station. Boeing is working closely with NASA on the development of its integrated crew transportation system under a Space Act Agreement, while certification efforts are taking place under a contract.
"Были когда-то и мы рысаками!!!"

Progress continues with Boeing’s Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 spacecraft as the team completed a three-day interior layout evaluation  at Boeing’s Houston Product Support Center (HPSC) mockup facility. This test marks another step closer to meeting the requirements for NASA’s Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap) Space Act Agreement. During the evaluation, NASA astronauts provided comments on the interior layout and evaluated the reach and visibility of the controls and displays.
"We were excited to have the opportunity to participate in Boeing's Cockpit Layout Evaluation of the CST-100,” said NASA Astronaut Michael Foreman. “Hopefully, our comments and suggestions will help them in their design and we look forward to further collaborations throughout this iterative process.”
The astronauts also provided valuable comments on the design of the crew seats, interior lighting, and how to improve the layout for Crew Resource Management to ensure that the Boeing product satisfies all potential customers.
“Incorporating the opinion of veteran spacecraft operators is essential to ensuring our design is appealing to our NASA customer,” said Christopher Ferguson, director of Crew and Mission Operations for the CST-100. “NASA’s excellent comments will be incorporated into the cockpit design to help make the Boeing vehicle intuitive and easy to operate.”  

The CST-100 team has met additional CCiCap milestones including the Software Integrated Engineering Release 2.0 and the Landing & Recovery Ground Communications Design Review. The CCiCap period of performance culminates in the spring of 2014 with the Critical Design Review Board.  Boeing is preparing for its initial test flight with a United Launch Alliance Atlas V launch vehicle as early as 2016.


короткий перевод с помощью гуггл:

Команда CST-100 завершает оценку компоновки кокпита

Команда CST-100 завершила трехдневную оценку интерьера макета в Хьюстоне. Этот тест знаменует собой еще один шаг на пути к выполнению требований для коммерческих экипажей НАСА для CCiCap. Во время оценки, астронавты НАСА сделали замечания по внутренней планировке и оценили досягаемость и видимость индикаторов управления.
"Мы были взволнованы иметь возможность участвовать в оценке кабины CST-100", сказал астронавт НАСА Майкл Форман. «Надеюсь, наши замечания и предложения, помогут им в их разработке, и мы надеемся на дальнейшее сотрудничество в этом процессе".
Астронавты также дали ценные замечания по конструкции кресел, внутреннему освещению, и по улучшению макета для управления ресурсами экипажа, чтобы убедиться, что продукт Boeing удовлетворяет всем потенциальным клиентам.
"Мнение ветерана оператора космических аппаратов является привлекательным для NASA", сказал Кристофер Фергюсон. "Отличные замечания NASA будут использованы в кабине дизайна, чтобы помочь сделать корабль Boeing интуитивно понятный и простой в эксплуатации".

CST-100 reviews road to mission operations

The Boeing Company's plans for its CST-100 spacecraft continue to firm up as the aerospace company works with NASA's Commercial Crew Program (CCP) to establish what will be needed to communicate with the spacecraft and recover it when it returns from a mission.
The capsule-shaped spacecraft is on track to launch to low-Earth orbit atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Florida's Space Coast around the middle of the decade. It is designed to hold enough crew members to allow the spaceship to operate as a taxi and lifeboat on missions to the International Space Station.
The company, one of three NASA is working with to establish a commercial industry to ferry astronauts to and from the orbiting laboratory, recently completed its fifth performance milestone and two in-depth reviews as part of the CST-100's development.
The latest review milestone under the funded Space Act Agreement with NASA during the Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCi-Cap) initiative at Boeing's facility in Titusville, Fla., established the baseline plan for the equipment and infrastructure needed to run spacecraft ground communications, and landing and recovery operations.
The company also completed back-to-back production design and “phase 1” safety reviews in November, which allowed agency managers and engineers to analyze safety and support systems being designed for the CST, short for Crew Space Transportation.
"The safety review showed some ways Boeing is mitigating and controlling hazards in the preliminary design review level of the integrated design," said Gennaro Caliendo of CCP's Partner Integration Office.
"Boeing has a great deal of experience in the human spaceflight business and has been integral in helping develop future spacecraft for our national capability."
The third review covered Boeing's progress in developing the By Bob Granath Spaceport News ground portions of mission operations software.
"It gave us an opportunity to look at how they are moving ahead and to provide input to their roducts," Caliendo said. "Innovation and ingenuity of commercial companies will be important, but since NASA will be purchasing a transportation service to the space station, we have requirements that companies eventually will have to meet if they plan on competing for services in the future."
The design of the CST-100 resembles NASA's legacy Apollo command and service modules. However, the CST-100 crew module is larger with a greater habitable interior with the capacity to carry up to seven astronauts or four astronauts and cargo, compared to the three sent on the lunar missions of the 1960s and '70s. It also is designed for reusability for up to ten missions.
The service module is considerably smaller than Apollo because it doesn't need a propulsion engine capable of getting it back from the moon. That also reduces the amount of equipment and consumables necessary for exclusively low-Earth orbit missions.
Recent analyses of landing systems have taken place in Delamar Dry Lake in Nevada, proving the CST-100 can return to Earth with three parachutes, as was the case with Apollo. Just prior to landing, air bags will deploy on the bottom of the spacecraft allowing a safe touchdown on the ground. To add flexibility, the CST-100 also can return for a water landing.
Boeing currently is on schedule to complete a total of 19 milestones during the base period of its CCiCap agreement. The company will be designing both flight and ground systems hardware, writing and testing code for flight software, developing ground communications systems, and performing wind tunnel tests. All of the work leads up to a Critical Design Review scheduled for April 2014 prior to optional qualification and flight demonstration milestones.
"The CDR will be an integrated systems review," Caliendo said. "We'll be looking at how the spacecraft is integrated with the launch vehicle, ground systems, and everything needed to manufacture, process, launch, fly and return the CST-100."
Bill Lane, deputy partner manager in CCP's Partner Integration Office, said the recent reviews are ensuring that NASA's new initiative remains on track.
"These reviews provided the foundation of capsule production, processing and flight operations," Lane said. "The teams have worked very hard to identify hardware, software and mission operations requirements that will be necessary to ensure flight safety starting from the initial production and continuing through the full life-cycle of the capsule."
NASA's new CCiCap agreements follow two previous commercial endeavors by the agency to spur the development of crew transportation systems and subsystems. Work by NASA's industry partners during CCiCap will set the stage for a crewed orbital demonstration mission around the middle of the decade.

Boeing Crew Capsule Review Clears Way For Wind Tunnel Testing

Boeingis set to begin detailed wind tunnel tests of its Crew Space Transportation (CST-100) spacecraft following a
successful preliminary design review of the launch vehicle adapter structure.
The CST-100 is designed to carry crews to the International Space Station as well as take space tourists to the Bigelow Aerospace orbital space complex, and could make its first test flight as early as 2016.
Completion of the review marks a key milestone for Boeing, which is developing the CST-100 under a Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap) agreement with NASA. Boeing, along with competitors SpaceX and Sierra Nevada, was awarded a contract for this follow-on phase to the Commercial Crew Development 2 (CCDev-2) program last August.
The Launch Vehicle Adapter is being designed by United Launch Alliance (ULA), maker ofthe Atlas V rocket that will deliver CST-100 to orbit. Boeing says detailed engineering of the adapter can now begin as it continues to progress toward the first of two planned test flights of the CST-100.
John Mulholland, vice president and program manager of Boeing Commercial Crew Programs, says the review also “sets the baseline for us to proceed to wind tunnel testing and the launch segment review in June.”
Boeing says that two additional CCiCap milestones were also completed earlier this year. These included the engineering 2.0 software release, which “lays the groundwork for spacecraft control and communications,” the company says.
The second was the Landing and Recovery Ground Systems and Ground Communications design review, which
establishes a plan for the equipment and infrastructure needed for ground communications and landing and recovery operations. - Guy Norris (guy_norris@aviationweek.com)

А какая разница, тем более, что свое Бигелоу уже заплатил, а НАСА по этому договору не будет компенсировать более 50% стоимости проекта? Получается, что платят Боинг и Бигелоу.

Уилбер Райт: "Признаюсь, в 1901-м я сказал своему брату Орвиллу, что человек не будет летать лет пятьдесят. А два года спустя мы сами взлетели".

Торжество свободного предпринимательства блин. На двухк конях скакать седалища не хватит. Пусть пузырями занимается. Ему еще трем фирмам платить.

А, если подумать, то Бигелоу для его "отеля" необходимы не менее двух "такси", так что его сотрудничество с двумя конкурирующими фирмами вполне оправдано. Не говоря уже о том, что таким образом он в какой-то мере страхует себя от убийственного для егобизнеса повышения цен на услуги "такси".

Уилбер Райт: "Признаюсь, в 1901-м я сказал своему брату Орвиллу, что человек не будет летать лет пятьдесят. А два года спустя мы сами взлетели".

Скока Бигелоу платит Боингу за CST-100? Любую цифру с источником плз. ;)
