The Spaceship Company Learns Valuable Lessons Using NASA 747-400 Simulator
October 14, 2020

The Spaceship Company (TSC) pilots flew the 747-400 simulator at NASA Ames Research Center on October 8-9, 2020, to further develop design loads on the mounting structure for launching vehicles from the top of a 747 aircraft. With nearly 100 runs completed, the TSC pilots flew various maneuvers and emergency events, and recorded the aircraft response (such as rates, accelerations, aero parameters) to inform the load cases and establish a baseline. TSC plans to return in a few weeks to repeat the tests with an enhanced model. Additional Covid-19 safety precautions were put in place during this simulation to ensure the health and safety of the TSC personnel and the NASA simulation operators.

ATM-X Collaborative Traffic Management (CTM) Sub-Project Meeting with Swift Engineering
October 14, 2020

The Air Traffic Management Exploration (ATM-X) Collaborative Traffic Management (CTM) sub-project, Upper-E Traffic Management (ETM) team met with a potential ETM participant, Swift Engineering, on October 6, 2020. During this meeting, Swift Engineering provided information regarding their support of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) and the High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) Unmanned Aircraft they are developing. The teams discussed the HALE operation’s relevance to the ETM work. Further discussions are planned.
