CAPTAIN’S LOG 16 MAY TO 01 JULY 2015

SOUR GRAPES

I went to the Space Access Conference to recruit partners for this venture.  I have two potential partners now, and we have identified two or three new partners since then.  The newest entries have some real aerospace credentials, and one even helped with my NASA efforts n the past.

I have responded to NASA solicitations in the past.  I joined two aerospace professionals to bid on the methane thruster competition, but then NASA cancelled the competition.  That was later awarded to Xcor so we might wonder where the competitive bidding went.  Later we entered a competition asking creative inventors for game changing ideas.  The response we got might be paraphrased as “We at NASA already know everything there is to know about aerodynamics”.  Did Anyone mention to them that aerodynamics had major influence on Space Ship Two and the last Spacex mission?

At the space conference I observed that NASA asked for papers on reusable launch systems but the offer was only open for about a month.  I was assured of another chance for the actual contract coming shortly.  So I asked my team to watch the federal solicitations page for that announcement.  I deliver a spreadsheet with program goals and this was a top priority, highlighted in red with bold yellow text.  In Trek-speak that translates as “Red Alert…shields up!”

I finally checked the announcements and found that we MISSED THE RELEASE DATE.  Realistically the requirements for submission might be met by a company with enough office staff to run like crazy and get proposals, costs, and reports turned in.  So “new space” ventures with small teams and funding may not have been invited by design.  This solicitation was issued on May 15, 2015 and is due by July 13 2015 so we had few credible assets for this target.

https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=1b5130e57f70f0c5924968f70277d1f1&tab=core&tabmode=list&=

There are groups who may be able to launch a 60kg satellite in three years, but who can get all this paperwork done well on short notice?  We are not damaged by technology, we may be crippled by bureaucracy…which I can’t even spell let alone operate.  Here are some targets for the submission:

The following page limitations are established for each portion of the proposal submitted in response to this solicitation.

II Past Performance 7 4 2
   
III Price None 4 2
  Financial Statements None 1 2
  Signed Model Contract None 1 2

Seriously my venture was never in a position to generate this effort.  But then is any newspace venture able to do this?  A pretty well heeled venture could get people to generate such a proposal if they risked a lot of man-hours of effort to do the proposal.  This part of a new venture is the hard part; the investment of free labor hours.

Now we address the idea of launching a new venture in space.  Someone has to lead the way by preparing a technology, a business plan, and marketing efforts.  Customer interest may attract investment but it has to be good enough to deliver 20 times their investment at a predetermined time.  The whole package requires your investment in sweat and cash.  Partners may expect equity in return for sweat:  actual labor.  So the leader has to go first.

I have invested over $40,000 in cash.  Labor for only the drafting work (not counting marketing, administration, and various education) is already over $160,000.  I hope I have demonstrated a little commitment in this effort.  Perhaps I can hope to inspire a similar investment from my team.  Over the years I have seen mixed results in this area.  I was taught: “But Jesus said to him, No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”  Many have joined, but few have shown up for work on Monday.  Breaking news:  if you want equity, send SWEAT!

NASA is not our market.  Just ask your Native American friends about government contracts.  We have more potential for a certain commercial market that our small vehicles can pioneer for now.  We may explore a government offering for practice, but I am not willing to hang all of my hopes on those.

AND DREAMS

Well, dreams are great but space is a really mean business environment.  NASA wants a competent builder with good finances and leaders with a record of success.  They know that the market is littered with the wreckage of new space ventures.  Even well funded efforts are passing through the expected path of crash and learn.  I see lots of little spaceplane teams with some credentials.  Others have built on vertical launch with good new technologies to demonstrate.  Most of our little efforts do not have the mean spirited business men who can fire the deadwood or even figure out who it is.  If we think ourselves to be beggars we may think that we can’t be choosers.  But unless your team has the passion for sacrifice they will not see the summit of this mountain.  Fiscal acrophobia is not permitted!

Honestly, small teams with a few good men may not have enough horsepower to make the climb.  Any vehicle requires a multitude of disciplines to cover propulsion, airframes, guidance, thermal protection, and aerodynamics.  Yes, you vertical guys have to watch aerodynamics too!  Then you have to move prototypes to production methods, and manage the business of making money for employees and investors.  Hey-I just got a phone call from a money broker offering a half-million dollars to us.  That won’t even pay for the design effort…and they want to get paid back on time!  Space is an environment that kills dreams on the way to low earth orbit.  Good luck to you Mars tourists!

Exodus Aerospace can use the winged development to serve some small markets in the atmosphere.  Unmanned markets are expanding but they have not discovered all the opportunities out there.  We need to see a payoff for investors who create our first small prototypes.  Vertical launch can’t loiter in the atmosphere or slow down long enough to explore the opportunities.  Conventional unmanned airframes also miss some performance potential.  While the dinosaurs have some time here, the little creatures can scurry under their feet…into the future.  Big aerospace and government may be impervious to innovation but we can be content to make small steps in the little things.

“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.”  Luke 16:10New Living Translation (NLT)

CAPTAIN’S LOG 18 MAY 2015

Our last post concluded on an overnight stop near Albuquerque NM.  We visited a small airport to see a small jet engine with big potential.  Desert Aerospace markets the TJ 100 turbines we are looking at.  http://www.desertaerospace.com/turbines.html

Bob Carlton gave us a tour and more information about the engines and the aircraft currently using them.  These have electric start, generator, fuel and oil pumps and electronic controls.  As we noted before, these are no model airplane engines.

After that visit we returned to course 360 and began the long climb from New Mexico to Colorado.  One overnight stop at Sugarite Canyon State Park got us ready for the last leg.  We had a little issue with Denver traffic and some cargo fell out of the cabinets, but we soon reached the familiar big skies of Wyoming.  After unpacking and a good night’s rest we were greeted by the same weather that sent us to Arizona…snow!

CAPTAIN’S LOG 15 MAY 2015

We left Apache Junction Arizona late on Wednesday May 13 after a good meal at Dirtwater Springs with Don Eyermann.  Our first stop was projected to be 4 hours by Google Maps, but my trailer rarely gets over 60 mph so we pulled in to a campsite at midnight.  There are many national forest roads near Show Low Arizona and the pine woods offered a much cooler starry night.  We look like some alien craft at night, and the dark woods were a quiet break from the constant noise of land and air traffic in Arizona.  I will miss the roar of radial engines of the warbirds though.

Our late loading effort left some cargo misplaced and hard to access but we settled in for a good night of rest after a starlight walk.  Dog stayed out listening to the creatures of the night for quite a while.  Sunrise revealed our campsite and the empty woods around us.  Dog got to run off the leash to sniff and hunt for a while.  Then we were off to New Mexico.

PREPARE FOR LAUNCH

CAPTAIN’S LOG 13 MAY 2015

Having completed activities in warmer climates we are ready to return to Wyoming to launch Exodus Aerospace.  Fellow entrepreneur Don Eyermann is using the CAD computer for an electric three wheeled vehicle design while I pack for the trip.  http://www.erv1.com/

The car hasn’t been washed for 6 month since we left during a 10 below and blizzard conditions.  The trailer was washed so the car got the treatment this time.  Dog and I made a few more trips into the desert trails before we left too.

Stops are planned for national parks and aerospace products along the way.  The first leg is short to allow an easy drive.  As it turned out we were late packing and made the park a little late so the short trip leg was a good plan.

ONE LAST DESERT TRAIL ON THE WAY NORTH

SHOWTIME

SPACE ACCESS 2015 IS OUR CHANCE TO GO FOR LAUNCH

The Space Access conference is a big reason for my trip to Arizona.  Preparations and anticipation are growing.  I spent days preparing displays and had to replace my printer in the process.  Just another casualty of the war on poverty!  Dog and I still had a few more days to enjoy the trails before our return to Wyoming later.  The Month of May adds insects to the snakes of April though.  Bees and tiny biting flies reminded me of Michigan!

The conference delivered some serious progress to our venture, but another venture suffered a serious setback.  Charles Pooley of Microlaunchers passed away before the conference.  This photo tour covers a lot of hopeful ventures and opportunities.  We will share more about our directions when we have firmed up our plans and incorporation.

I expect to leave Arizona on the 13th of May and we have a few important stops along the way.  By the end of the month we may have an interesting team assembled.  This trip began early due to the ten degree below Wyoming weather in November.  Cold weather and blizzards followed us all the way to Texas.  Mechanical and medical problems complicated the entire six months of this adventure.  In the end we have many new friends in the new space movement.  The movement lost a friend who helped many along the way, so we hope we can do so in our endeavors as well.

AND ANOTHER BADGE JOINS THE COLLECTION

Exodus aerospace can identify real markets and real talent to build on.  There are a few days of packing, and a long road ahead to the future.  Now we move from paper airplanes and models to the real world of new space business.  In my last blog I remembered my own mortality.  I have invested most of my energy and resources in a vision for a better future.  Now we are reminded that others before us have shared this desire so we hope that some of these goals will be realized in our lifetime.  We will still need young visionaries to carry that hope to completion.  Exodus Aerospace expresses the hope to leave the planet for this new frontier.  The leadership we may develop should have the support they need to become the next stage in that journey.

CHARLES POOLEY, RIP

FULLY OPERATIONAL

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU…

Starting a business is often hard, and more so when you start into aerospace.  This is not like starting a sandwich shop.  Software ventures don’t need massive design and fabrication costs.  Partners and investors know how hard aerospace is and they are hard to find.  While I am working to do this I have mundane medical and maintenance needs.  The desert offers reminders of the shortness and cruelty of life.  My own health suggests that time is limited for mortal man.  To the eyes life is heartless and harsh, but my Christian faith has eyes to see hope in the shadow of death.

FOR THIS RABBIT THE COYOTE THREAT WAS REAL THOUGH

IMG_1018bAND THE DESERT ALSO TOOK THIS JAVELINA (WILD PIG)

IMG_1018a

WHICH ONCE OFFERED A REAL THREAT

I have worked for several years to design and patent a system that may solve problems.  I have worked alone, and spent my own money up to this point.  Now the job will be too much for a single hand, and we need to incorporate.  To this goal I am inviting partners to share equity in the venture.  At times the efforts don’t seem to be producing results and my faith is challenged.  Over time it seems like a running gun battle with setbacks and counter offensives.  Slowly the evidence of progress is coming in.  In the old days of naval warfare one might not see how much damage the enemy was taking because of the distances.  One would be keenly aware of the damage done by the enemy because of its immediate close impact.  By faith they would praise the lord and pass the ammunition until a victory was won.  So we press on and continue to build here.

Oh, I’m afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive…

We have a few weeks before the Space Access 2015 conference in Phoenix.  I hope to generate more participation at that event.  Then we will be ready to retreat from the land of heat and reenter the cooling breezes of Wyoming.  Will we be ready to incorporate in that tax-free environment?

ALIEN ABDUCTION

I TRY TO REMEMBER TO CLEAN UP BEHIND MY DOG…

This prevents the kind of accidents that inspired Forrest Gump to report that “It happens”.  Well, it still happens.  We make plans, and watch our step, but we still feel the slippery slopes in life.  As I plan to pursue a business venture I am being prudent to ensure that I can deliver a good work day.  Arizona offers competitive camping prices, trailer repairs, and medical care.  I am getting all the maintenance done while I am here.

After the Space Access 2015 Conference in May I will again go on the road for the mission.  We will be ready, but it is usually not a perfect road.  Being able to turn to the next trouble spot is critical to mission completion.  We are building a flexible team and a flexible plan to meet the need.  Space dock is putting the tools in place.

AS MEN (AND DOGS) IN BLACK

DO YOU THINK THAT I AM MAKING ALL THIS UP?  NEWS FLASH:  THEY’RE COMING FOR YOU TOO!

Dad told me that growing old isn’t for cowards, and now I see it happening to me!  There is a curse in the Garden of Eden, and our sins take a toll on our flesh.  There is a form of alien (demonic) life that pulls us down, and we can’t miss all the works of the dark side of the force…old age!  The approach of death doesn’t have to mean that we have to fear it though.  There is life on the other side for those who discover the key.  Some of you already know that one name earns persecution from all the other beliefs.   That name sees more oppression and death than all the others.  But they keep on believing even more when persecuted, since the Roman times and earlier.  Why do they persevere?  Because they experience their hope; it makes them solid.  I AM is greater than IS!      (or ISIS or ISIL or whtever)

Elvis has left the room, and I will follow but we want to leave a few young folks on the board, so we are recruiting for Exodus Aerospace.  We are also pioneering a new path to prosperity that fits a new market environment.  New Space has opportunities that old space is unable to access.  Think Alexander against the Persians.  Old doesn’t have to mean dead.  Don Quixote lives on in new space!
