NASA Launches Program To Certify Space Taxis
By Irene Klotz

PASADENA, Calif. — With an eye toward breaking Russia’s monopoly on flying crew to the international space station (ISS) by 2017, NASA has launched a two-stage certification process aimed at ensuring commercial passenger spaceships currently under development will meet the agency’s safety standards, schedule and mission requirements.

НАСА запускает программу сертификации космических "частников"
(10:00) 17.09.2012

// CyberSecurity.ru // - Американское космическое агентство НАСА продолжает предпринимать усилия, направленные на то, чтобы сбросить с себя зависимость от российской монополии на доставку людей до 2017 года. В конце прошлой недели НАСА объявило о старте программы двухуровневой сертификации, направленной на то, чтобы гарантировать: все находящиеся ныне в разработке частные космические корабли соответствуют стандартам НАСА.

Участие в программе сертификации добровольное, но для того, чтобы компания-претендент могла отправлять от США астронавтов на МКС наличие сертификата НАСА обязательно. В рамках сертификации эксперты будут проверять не только безопасность и качество изготавливаемых аппаратов, но также и сроки их производства, готовность компании-подрядчика к выпуску множества аппаратов и ряд других требований.

Самому агентству НАСА сертификация обойдется примерно в 10 млн долларов, а длится она будет на протяжении 15 месяцев. Известно, что в программе сертификации NASA Certification Products Contract будут принимать участие как минимум три компании - Boeing, Space Exploration Technologies и Sierra Nevada Corp, ведущие создание пилотируемых аппаратов, пригодных для автономных околоземных полетов. Впрочем, в НАСА говорят, что программа сертификации открытая и в ней могут принять участие другие производители.

Первая фаза программы сертификации стартует в феврале 2013 года и продлится до конца мая 2014 года. За этот срок коммерческие аппараты должны быть произведены и готовы к фактической демонстрации, кроме того, здесь же компания-производитель должна ознакомить НАСА с основами производственного процесса, чтобы ведомство было уверено, что получает качественный продукт по обоснованной цене. Далее НАСА должно оценить потенциальные угрозы, связанные с использованием аппарата. Например, как изменится стоимость аппарата, если в него внести какие-то изменения, или как скажется на работе американской программы возможные задержки с поставками данных кораблей.

В НАСА говорят, что данная программа также направлена на то, чтобы сформировать полноценный рынок коммерческих аппаратов и перейти от схемы фиксированного ценообразования к гибкой системе.

На второй фазе сертификации компания должна будет готова показать аппарат в полете и продемонстрировать его возможности в реальных условиях. Принять участие во второй части программы могут лишь те компании, что успешно прошли первую, кроме того компании могут объединяться и предлагать какие-то совместные решения.

Как известно, всего сейчас на двухлетнюю программу коммерческих космических полетов НАСА выделило 1,1 млрд долларов. Первые заявки на участие в программе компании могут подать, начиная с 12 октября.

NASA still making the case for commercial crew
BY STEPHEN CLARK
SPACEFLIGHT NOW
Posted: November 30, 2012

NASA's top administrators, baffled by continued congressional resistance to funding the agency's commercial crew program, this week said supporters should revamp how they advocate for privatized human spaceflight.

NASA Awards Commercial Crew Certification Contracts

NASA announced Dec. 10 the next step in its plan to launch American astronauts from U.S. soil, selecting three companies to conduct activities under contracts that will enable future certification of commercial spacecraft as safe to carry humans to the International Space Station.

Advances made by these American companies during the first contract phase known as the certification products contracts (CPC) will begin the process of ensuring integrated crew transportation systems will meet agency safety requirements and standards to launch American astronauts to the International Space Station from the United States, ending the agency’s reliance on Russia for these transportation services. The second phase of certification will result in a separately competed contract.

CPC contractors are:
-- The Boeing Company, Houston, $9,993,000
-- Sierra Nevada Corporation Space System, Louisville, Colo., $10,000,000
-- Space Exploration technologies Corp., Hawthorne, Calif., $9,589,525

"These contracts represent important progress in restoring human spaceflight capabilities to the United States," said Phil McAlister, director of the Commercial Spaceflight Development Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "NASA and its industry partners are committed to the goal of safely and cost-effectively launching astronauts from home within the next five years."

During the Phase 1 CPC contracts, from Jan. 22, 2013 through May 30, 2014, the companies will work with NASA's Commercial Crew Program (CCP) to discuss and develop products to implement the agency's flight safety and performance requirements. This includes implementation across all aspects of the space system, including the spacecraft, launch vehicle, and ground and mission operations.

Under the contract, a certification plan will be developed to achieve safe, crewed missions to the space station. This includes data that will result in developing engineering standards, tests and analyses of the crew transportation systems design.

"I congratulate the three companies for their selection," said Ed Mango, CCP manager at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. "This is the program's first major, fixed-price contract. The effort will bring space system designs within NASA's safety and performance expectations for future flights to the International Space Station."

The second phase of the certification contract, expected to begin in mid-2014, will involve a full and open competition. It will include the final development, testing and verifications necessary to allow crewed demonstration flights to the space station.

NASA is facilitating the development of U.S. commercial crew space transportation capabilities with the goal of achieving safe, reliable and cost-effective access to and from low-Earth orbit for potential future government and commercial customers.

While NASA works with U.S. industry partners to develop these capabilities, the agency also is developing the Orion spacecraft and the Space Launch System (SLS), a crew capsule and heavy-lift rocket to provide an entirely new capability for human exploration. Designed to be flexible for launching spacecraft for crew and cargo missions, SLS and Orion will expand human presence beyond low-Earth orbit and enable new missions of exploration in the solar system.

Company test pilots slated for first commercial space flights

The first American rockets and spacecraft to fly in the wake of the shuttle's retirement will be crewed by company test pilots -- not NASA astronauts -- in part to give space agency managers better insight into flight readiness and safety, officials said Wednesday.

Assuming NASA gets the funding managers say they need -- a big if in today's political environment -- Space Technologies Corp., or SpaceX, hopes to launch a manned version of its Dragon cargo ship in the mid 2015 timeframe, followed by a crewed flight to the International Space Station later that year.

A top Boeing manager told reporters the company's CST-100 capsule should be ready for an initial three-day orbital test flight, with company pilots, in 2016. A senior manager with Sierra Nevada, which has pinned its hopes on a winged orbiter similar in appearance to a mini space shuttle, said both manned and autonomous sub-orbital test flights will be used to pave the way to orbital missions.

The test flights will be part of a complex certification process that will lead to NASA flights to and from the space station in the 2017 timeframe, budgets permitting. Whether those flights will use all-NASA crews or combinations of company pilots and NASA passengers is not yet clear.

Commercial Crew Efforts To Be Hit Hard By Sequestration
By Jefferson Morris

February 15, 2013

NASA’s topline budget for fiscal 2013 will be reduced by $726.7 million as compared to its budget request if sequestration takes effect March 1, with a significant portion of that cut being absorbed by the agency’s efforts to nurture commercial systems for transporting crew and cargo to low Earth orbit.

Commercial crew program threatened by budget cuts
BY STEPHEN CLARK
SPACEFLIGHT NOW
Posted: February 23, 2013

Automatic spending cuts due to go into effect March 1 would likely extend U.S. reliance on Russia for human spaceflight, delay development of badly-needed next-generation weather satellites, and force a reduction in radar scans searching for space debris, according to Obama administration officials.

That's if Congress and the White House don't act to avoid the across-the-board cuts, which will be automatically triggered at the end of next week without a compromise on how to deal with the federal government's budget deficit.

NASA would lose about $894 million fr om its current budget outlook in the period between March 1 and Sept. 30, the end of fiscal year 2013.

According to a letter to the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, the space agency's commercial crew program would suffer the brunt of the budget cuts.

By the second half of 2013, NASA says it will be unable to make payments to companies working on private spaceships under the agency's commercial crew program.

"Overall availability of commercial crew transportation services would be significantly delayed, thereby extending our reliance on foreign providers for crew transportation to the International Space Station," Bolden wrote in a letter to Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee.

NASA has public-private partnership agreements with Boeing Co., SpaceX and Sierra Nevada Corp. to fund the design and testing of commercial spacecraft designed to carry astronauts to the space station. NASA makes payments to the companies upon completion of predetermined development milestones.

Until a commercial provider becomes operational, which NASA projects by 2017, U.S. astronauts will ride Russian Soyuz spacecraft while voyaging to the space station and back to Earth.
