Cost-Effective Space Access
More Responsive and Affordable Access to Space for All Payloads
The Falcon class RideShare Adapter (RSA) developed by Design Net Engineering under contract from Space Access Technologies and in partnership with Astronautics Technologies SB (ATSB) and SpaceX provides cost effective, rapid integration rideshare for science, technology, and education payloads. The RSA is a versatile, scalable structure with standardized interfaces, and its own “smart” and configurable deployment electronics. It enables multi payload manifesting with an interface to the primary that is identical to the launch vehicle. The RSA accepts payloads as small as a CubeSat and as large as a “half ESPA”. It promotes contract to launch times of less than one year.
