Spaceport Based Operations
With the realization of suborbital spaceflight becoming more accessible to aviation companies—and thus the general public—the demand for suborbital spaceports is expected to increase significantly. With a projected commercial launch increase of 300% in the U.S. alone, coordinating air and orbital traffic will be the largest challenge to overcome. Sub orbit transportation will dramatically impact international travel as we see efficiency and efficacy gains due to the much greater speeds than offered by today’s conventional airlines.
Every available spaceport will soon serve as a central hub for both sub and outer orbit launch. This union of both types of launches will help to increase the capability for each to achieve their missions. By 2025, 20,000 new satellites are predicted to be placed in orbit, and over 200 private launches are expected to have been conducted. With only 16 locations capable of achieving this type of launch to date, it is clear that the limiting factor is a lack of facilities for vehicles to launch from. With the increase of capable spaceports across the globe, launches will be conducted in a smoother and more efficient manner decreasing the overall cost of operations.
Launch On Demand boasts the largest flight-tracking network in the U.S., utilizing more than 60 individual data feed sources to collect its information. This paired with LOD’s patented On Orbit Collision Avoidance Analysis creates a safe environment for commercial spaceports to operate, free of concern for any air collision. By increasing the network of spaceports across the globe, thus lowering the barriers to entry, space will have something to offer every conceivable industry. From stronger steel to better medicine, to faster delivery times; space travel holds the potential to be the largest economic boom in human history.
