Courses Currently Enrolled
UND – Spring Semester 2011: SpSt 570 Commercial Space: 2011 & Beyond
With the new changes taking place in our national civil space program and policy given national, economic, budget, and deficit considerations here and globally, this class will examine and explore the evolving commercial space industry, including its potential and its risks for human spaceflight as well as cargo missions. We will address what is meant by the use of the term "commercial." This class will also examine the role of the entrepreneurial space community and NewSpace, its impact and potential contributions to our changing national space policy. As part of this examination, our class will undertake a realistic assessment of markets, space tourism, suborbital academic and scientific research programs such as the NASA CRuSR program, regulations, and rules to be issued by NASA and the AST. Since the government remains the primary and in many cases the only customer, we will look at the two primary contracting forms, cost plus and fixed price contracting, to see how each method impacts the space program and why one is considered commercial and the other is considered a business as usual government model. We will also be assessing the risks of each contracting type for the contracting parties and stakeholders. The expected outcome of having taken this class is for students to have an objective and comprehensive understanding of the business, management, financial, and marketing issues along with the technical and policy challenges facing our evolving space program.
