ABSTRACT

Fast Space: Leveraging Ultra Low-Cost Space Access for 21st Century Challenges   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Executive Summary: "This white paper describes how the US Air Force (USAF) can leverage new concepts and technologies to build compelling strategic advantage through the innovative exploitation of space. A confluence of government research and private sector innovation has opened a window of opportunity for the United States to shift its approach to space-- how it is both viewed and used. Capitalizing on this window requires addressing opportunities across an ecosystem of launch vehicles, payloads, spacecraft, industrial base, and the policy-driven regulatory environment."
