The site has been designed to encourage the use of green energies within a landscape as a defining attraction, as an opportunity to create a pleasant scenario that sustains the natural character of the site, given the impact of the proposed industry. So far, the Factory Shell Buildings have reached the construction stage. Amenities such as toilets and service facilities are also provided.
The GSAL is an automated assembly system designed to create segments of a structure. The segments are then welded together to form the whole structure. This method of construction is called permanent modular construction.
The GSAL will consist of a number of workstations, each with a different assignment. Each will assemble semi complete segments much like aircraft manufacturers and shipyards do. It may all sound very sophisticated, but in reality, the GSAL is just an assembly line in space.
Trusselator is an innovative method of quickly producing massive trusses for large antennas, solar collecting structures, and reflectors. Worker Habitation Construction Worker Habitation To have construction projects produce results takes weeks, months, and sometimes years.
Vital to keeping the project moving forward are pressurized modules for people to live in while they coordinate the construction activities of bots, pods and drones. There are three main areas that would need to be present in construction worker habitation: The following habitats are actively used in space or will soon be ready for the roles needed for space construction habitation.
Although, the actual construction site would be a few miles away for ISS crew safety, it would still be close enough for construction workers to rest, work on tools and machines, and it could act as a base for construction control and coordination.
It would be a shame to see ISS burn in when it could have a new life as a space construction base and testing area. BA Bigalow Aerospace has been working on expandable habitation modules for over 10 years.
Some of the modules were launched years ago into orbit and are still up there holding pressure! These lightweight expandable modules which also provide more working space than modules used on the ISS could be perfect for future work sites in higher or polar orbits.
Axiom Space LLC Newly formed Axiom Space has a proposed module that could serve as a basis for a new station if the venture gets properly funded. We expect great things from this well staffed company.
Although, the EMU was used in assembling the ISS, it lacks several of the features that newer suits offer, and the necessary communication systems needed to build structures using robotic assets. In short, a new suit is needed. We would like to see more hard sided protection and a wrist communicator that allows control of construction assets, to reduce crush hazards in assembly zones.
Others The Dave Clark company has been making spacesuits for years for Air Force missions and SpaceX has expressed a desire to make their own. Expect to see more players in this area of Space FAC soon. Frame Building Machines Frame Building Machines Almost every structure to be built will require a frame with which actuators, ACS modules and communication systems will be mounted.
There may be a time when such frame building machines can operate without a support crew, but for the foreseeable future, astronauts and bots will be present to assist in the construction and ensure the assembly goes as planned.
Archinaut enables fundamentally new spacecraft designs and reduces the costs associated with qualifying a satellite for launch. The synergy of its manufacturing and assembly capabilities are critical to constructing an entire spacecraft on orbit.
Individual mirror segments are mounted on a rigid body actuator platform within the mirror module. EqT Equipment Transport Vehicle To transport all of the construction equipment from one work site orbit, altitude to another will require a transport vehicle designed for just such a purpose.
This vehicle would not be needed for a while if ISS could be used as a base of operations for coming space construction projects. But eventually other projects will need to be built in other orbits and elevations that will require the construction of this vehicle. So, what would it look like?
We only have basic drawings, but we can describe in detail what we would need in words. First, it must house the crew and all of their equipment. That means a habitation module, a refurbishment and repair module, and a Construction Control Center 3C.
Next, EqT will have bays for equipment bots, pods, drones. These bays must be able to charge batteries, reload any needed propellant, and upgrade onboard software.Welcome to The Grammar School at Leeds, Yorkshire's leading independent day school for boys and girls from 3 years to 18 years.
