REDEFINING WHO AND WHAT CAN ENTER SPACE

providING cost effective, reliable and FREQUENT access to space

 

WE ARE AMBITIOUS

Enter Space has reviewed the international space industry and found that small satellite customers have considerable wait times between contract signing and satellite launch. The high fixed cost of existing launch services prohibits dedicated launch solutions and these satellite customers must share the launch with a primary customer. Often this solution works well, but it imposes additional risks and delays as the primary payload is given priority in launch delivery and orbit. Thus a smaller payload must wait for a specific launch contract to have the opportunity to reach its desired orbit. Overall, the highest barrier to access space is cost!

Enter Space is proposing a radical departure from the high cost, long wait time and high risk launch market, for small satellites in the 100 to 3,000kg range.  Enter Space aims to use an innovative launch architecture that ensures small satellite customers receive dedicated and cost-effective services, by providing:

  • A fully reusable horizontal take-off and horizontal landing (HTHL) launch architecture using minimal ground infrastructure to enable high frequency, quick turnaround launch services from multiple runways around the globe.

  • An Enter Space proprietary plug and play, clean room to streamline launch integration and delivery services.

  • Cost competitive dedicated launch services for customers with payloads ranging between 100kg and 3,000kg.

Using this innovative launch architecture Enter Space is aiming to reduce launch costs to below $1000/kg. By reducing the cost barrier to space, Enter Space aims to see humans further extend their reach into the solar system.

 

“The highest barrier to access space is cost…
Enter Space is aiming to reduce launch costs to below $1,000/kg

WHAT ARE WE MAKING?

To prove our launch architecture, we are building a prototype of the orbital launch system, which we aim to test at the end of 2019 early 2020. The fully reusable prototype will fly on a suborbital trajectory testing the launch system, propulsion, staging, communications and Guidance Navigation and Control (GNC) systems, while reaching our 100km sub-orbital target.

After initial prototype testing, we intend to scale up and develop the fully reusable orbital launch vehicle. This system will provide satellite delivery services and a platform for low cost returnable space experiments. We hope this will lead to space tourism and high speed international travel opportunities, while simultaneously improving stewardship of space.

Stay tuned humanity! Be prepared to Enter Space.

FOUNDER
AARON BONANNO - engineer

Aaron began this journey in 2013 believing that continuous access to space can only be achieved through reusable and high frequency launch services.  Since then Aaron has been studying, researching and designing a launch architecture capable of providing diversified launch services to clients around the globe.  This research and development culminated in the creation of Enter Space with a team of skilled and motivated engineers and business developers at the beginning of 2019.

Aaron’s background in space science stems from a fascination with science fiction he had in early childhood which lead to a hobby of experimenting and testing homemade rocket motors and studying In-Situ Resource Utilisation (ISRU) lunar energy concepts at university. Aaron, as part of a team of engineers, developed the first Australian lunar regolith simulant ALRS-1 in 2012 and worked on sintering lunar regolith for thermal energy storage on the moon. His work was chosen as the 2012 best undergraduate paper at the American Society of Civil Engineers, Earth and Space Conference - Engineering for Extreme Environments. He has appeared on the Australian science television program Catalyst in 2014.

Full Disclosure

Although the fundamental concepts of what we are doing have been around for a long time, our nuanced approach combines a range of these concepts in manageable degrees to produce a unique launch solution that will be both fully reusable and low cost.

We understand that our plans are ambitious, and we recognise that Australia has an old space history but a small space industry. We aim to leverage this growing dynamic industry and the networks that are being created, work intelligently and, persistently and build on the learnings that propel us further on the road to space.

We expect to reach Enter Space’s goals through ongoing research and development, knowledge sharing, commitment, perseverance, a dedicated team and a resilient aerospace network.

WITH YOUR SUPPORT WE CAN ENTER SPACE!

It will take the support of individuals and organisations across the nation and the globe to Enter Space. If you’re interested in supporting our project, we have one of three ways you can be involved


OFFER YOUR RELEVANT SKILLS

Are you an engineer who is skilled in and passionate about aerospace? Or do you have other skills that would be useful to Enter Space?

If you’re excited about expanding the scope of human space exploration and want to be involved, let us know!

BECOME A SPONSOR

Substantial capital investment will be required to launch the Enter Space system into orbit, and that will come in part from sponsors like you!

We are looking for one-time contributions from interested parties through our sponsorship tiers.

CONTRIBUTE VIA KICKSTARTER

COMING SOON!

Kickstarter is a platform that lets you pledge a set amount toward a financial goal.  Be on the lookout for our Kickstarter Campaign later this year!
