8月1日,在商业载人运输能力(CCtCap)前期建议会议上,商业载人计划经理 ED Mango 对航空航天行业的代表讲话。 (来源:…

No oneperson, no one company, no one government agency, has a monopoly on thecompetence, the missions, or the requirements for the space program.”
                .. …

Since its inception, the procurementstrategy of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program (CCP) has been based on reachingcommon ground with industry partners as they work together to establish safeand cost-effective American crew launch capabilities to low-Earth orbit and theInternational Space Station.

The success of this program isdirectly related to the success of our industry partners,” said CCP Manager EdMango. “While our program priorities have not changed, it’s important that wehave this open dialogue now and set expectations together so that NASA can havethe highest quality crew transportation system come 2017.”
“这一计划的成功与否,直接关系到我们的行业合作伙伴的成功,”CCP经理ED Mango .说。“虽然并没有改变我们的计划优先级,这一点很重要,我们有这个公开的对话,现在一起设定期望值,使 NASA可以有乘员运输系统最高质量的2017年。“

As the program prepares to enter its finalphase of NASA certification efforts, agency officials met with companyrepresentatives who are interested in competing for a contract during this nextCommercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) phase. Held at NASA’sKennedy Space Center in Florida on Aug. 1, the Pre-Solicitation Conference wasmeant to keep the line of communication flowing and ensure the official Requestfor Proposals (RFP) is right on target when released this fall.
随着项目的准备进入其 NASA认证工作的最后阶段,机构官员们有兴趣与公司代表会面 ,他们将在下一个商业载人运输能力(CCtCap)阶段 期间 争夺这个合同。8月1日在NASA佛罗里达KSC举行的(这个)预先征集会议是为了保持通讯交流线路(畅通),确保官方征求建议(书)(RFP)在今年秋天的目标发布日期是正确的。

The CCtCapwill be a full and open competition and all offerors will be evaluated equallybased on the criteria outlined in the official RFP that will be released thisfall,” said Maria Collura, CCP certification manager.
“CCtCap将是一个全面和公开的竞争,同样将评估所有的 基于正式的RFP中列出的标准的要约人,将在今年秋季发布,“  玛丽亚Collura说,他是CCP的认证管理者。

Beginning in summer of 2014, when awardsare anticipated for one or more contractors, CCtCap efforts will be focused ondeveloping, verifying and validating an integrated system that is safe for crewtransportation. A CCtCap contractor also will plan, manage and execute long-termproduction and operational plans for its crew transportation system (CTS).

We’reencouraging competition, which allows industry to provide the safest system, ina cost-effective manner, while pushing technology development and innovation,”Mango said. “Down selecting to a single provider could limit these benefits.”
“我们鼓励竞争,这使得行业提供最安全的系统,在一个符合成本效益的方式下,同时推动技术开发和创新,“  芒果说。“减少选择到一个单一的供应商可能会限制这些好处。

The certification portion of CCtCap willinclude a contractor completing at least one crewed flight test to theInternational Space Station. NASA plans to award at least two and up to sixadditional post-certification missions during the CCtCap period of performanceprior to a follow-on space station services contract.
CCtCap的认证部分将包括一个承包商完成至少一次到ISS的载人飞行试验。 NASA计划奖励至少两个,以及CCtCap实施期间多达六次的附加的认证后任务在后续的空间站服务合同之前。

This nextphase brings us closer to accomplishing our dual strategies at NASA,” said PhilMcAlister, director of NASA Commercial Spaceflight Development at the agency’sHeadquarters in Washington. “To launch our astronauts from U.S. soil and continue criticalresearch aboard the International Space Station, while venturing deeper intospace than ever before.”
“在NASA,这个下一个阶段带领我们更接近实现我们的双重战略 “ 菲尔·麦卡利斯特说,他是NASA商业太空飞行开发主任,该机构华盛顿总部。“要从美国本土发射宇航员,并继续搭乘的关键研究 ISS,而冒险深入的空间比以往任何时候。“

The CCtCap draft RFP is a culmination ofefforts from experts across the agency, including procurement specialists,program representatives, engineers, technicians, safety, health and medical,spacecraft, expendable launch vehicle experts and NASA’s Flight Crew Office.
这个CCtCap 初步RFP 是一个跨机构的专家努力大成,包括采购专家,方案代表,工程师,技术人员,安全,健康和医疗,航天器,一次性的运载火箭专家和 NASA的飞行乘员组办公室。

NASA概述它的 商业载人认证计划
NASA Outlines its Plans for Commercial CrewCertification
August5, 2013 by Yves-A. Grondin
Ina recent conference with its industrypartners, NASA outlined the next phase ofits strategy to enable thecertification of commercial crew transportationsystems to and from theInternational Space Station (ISS). The goal is to returndomestic launch andtransportation capability by the year 2017.
Phase1 of the certification strategy, theCertification Products Contract (CPC)phase, was awarded last December toSpaceX, SNC and Boeing for amounts that didnot exceed $10 million per company.
Thisprocurement contract is based on the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) andits deliverables include earlylife-cycle certification products (alternatestandards, hazards analysis, andverification, validation, and certificationplans).
该采购合同基于联邦采购条例(FAR)  以及可交付成果包括早期生命周期认证产品(替代标准,危害分析,和验证,验证,和认证计划)。
Phase2 of the strategy, the CommercialCrew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) phase,should also be a FAR-basedprocurement contract – more specifically, it shouldbe a Firmed Fixed PriceContract under Part 15 of FAR.
战略 的第2阶段,商业载人运输能力阶段(CCtCap),也应该是基于FAR-采购合同  -更具体地,根据FAR15节,它应该是一个稳定的固定价格的合同
Thiscontract should be awarded in the summer of 2014 and involves the final Design,Development, Test, and Evaluation(DDTE) activities that are necessary toachieve NASA’s certification of a crew transportation system (CTS) to the ISS,along with execution of post certification missions (PCM) to the ISS.
这个合同应当在2014年夏天售出,(它)涉及最终的设计、开发,测试,和评估(DDTE活动, 对于实现NASA乘员运输系统(CTS)去到ISS的认证是必要的,随同认证后执行(PCMISS的任务是一道(进行)。
Achievingcertification under CCtCap means that the contractor’s transportation systemhas met the Agency’s safety requirements for transporting NASA’s crew to theISS.
Asdetailed in a recently issued draft request for proposal (draft RFP), CCtCapshould include four separate items:The first item relates to theDDTE/Certification of the crew transportationsystem and the purpose of thisitem is to complete DDTE activities and certifythe company’s system to NASA’srequirements for safely transporting NASA crew to the ISS.
就象最近发布的草案征求建议(书)(RFP草案)详述的,CCtCap应该包括四个独立的项目:第一项条款涉及到乘员运输系统DDTE/认证 以及 条款的目的是去完成DDTE活动 以及 认证 公司的系统 NASA要求 为安全运输NASA乘员组去到ISS
Itmust include at least one crewed testflight to the ISS. However, NASA expectsthat most companies will propose morethan one test flight including an unmannedtest flight.
它必须包括至少一次到ISS的载人测试飞行。 但是,NASA预期,大多数公司将提出一次以上的测试飞行,包括无人驾驶测试飞行。
EdMango, program manager of NASA’s commercial crew program, indicated at theconference that the base period for the DDTE/Certification item is planned tobe from July 2014 to September 31,2017. However, he emphasized that the actualend date will depend on the proposals.
埃德芒果,NASA商业载人计划项目经理,在这次会议上表示,关于DDTE /认证条款 的基本期限 计划为从20147月至 2017931 但是,他强调说,实际结束日期将取决于有关建议。
Thesecond item relates to post certification missions (PCMs) and its purpose is toperform missions to theISS.
第二项条款涉及 认证后的任务(PCMs ,其目的是为了执行到ISS的任务。
After CCtCap award and after certaincriteria are satisfied, NASAmay request a proposal for a PCM. The minimum quantity of missions guaranteedto be ordered for this item is two.
The maximum number of allPCMs awarded to all CCtCap contractors is six. To the extent that they do notoverlap with the existing Soyuz contract, post-certification missions areexpected to be used to rotate crews on the ISS. Ed Mango mentioned at theconference that post-certification missions can be ordered thru December 31,2020.
   PCMs被授予到所有的CCtCap承包商的最大数量是六(次)。在一定程度上,他们与现有的联盟合同不重叠,认证后任务预计 被使用在 轮换ISS乘员组上。 EDMango在会议上提到的,认证后任务可以一直订购到20201231PS: 6次,2018-20203年,2/?
The third item relates tospecial studies and its purpose should be to perform special studies, tests andanalyses, as needed by NASA to perform risk reduction-type activities that arenot required under the other items. The maximum potential total value of allspecial studiestasks which may be ordered for a contract is $150M.
第三项条款涉及专项研究,其目的应该是进行专项研究、测试和分析,作为NASA执行降低风险类型活动的需要,(这些活动)并不需要根据其他项目(而定?)。所有专项研究任务 的 最大合同潜在 总价值  为一个合同可以 订购  1.5亿美元。
  The fourth itemis aimed at allowing a contractor to provide cargo in addition to the minimumNASA requirements that is required from commercial crew providers – undersection 3.1.3of the 2011 draft CCT-REQ-1130Document, the requirement was for a minimum ofpressurized cargo of 100 kg and 8 cubic feet of stowage volume;and for an additional 100 kgfor any seat not occupied by a crewmember.
第四项条款是旨在 使一个承包商去提供附加货物  去最小化NASA要求,(该要求)需要来自商业载人提供商  - 根据2011年初步的CCT-REQ-1130 文件 第3.1.3节,要求100公斤的最低加压货物 和8立方英尺的存储容积; 同时(这)附加的100公斤 不为 任何 一个 乘组乘员的座位(所)占用。
   This item isoptional and thus does not have to be proposed by a commercial crew provider,and can be ordered inconjunction with post-certification missions orcertification flight tests.
这一项是可选的,因此不是非有要 由一个商业载人提供商 提出,同时 可以责令结合认证后任务或认证飞行测试。
     It is not intended to be areplacement for existing cargo services, but should allow NASA to establish anunderstanding of the full capacity and pricing of the proposed crewtransportation system. However,Ed Mango specified at the conference that thereshould be “no negative impact to the evaluation for not proposing this capability”given that it is not arequirement.
   它的目的不是要替换现有的货运服务,但应该使NASA建立一个理解的充分完全的能力 以及 建议的乘员运输系统的定价。 但是,埃德芒果在发布会祥述说,应该是 对评估没有任何负面影响 ,关于没有提出这种能力  因为这不是一个要求。
Docking System of the Spacecraft:
An item of interest in theRFP that could impact the timing of the certification test flights and of thepost certification missions is the docking system that will be used on the spacecraft.
Each commercial crewprovider must determine their approach to enable docking their spacecraft withthe ISS, with the draft RFP documentation indicating that one option is for thegovernment to provide NASA DockingSystem (NDS) units to commercial crew providers as Government FurnishedProperty (GFP).
The Government will makeavailable a total of four NASA Docking System Block 1 units on a nocharge-for-use basis. If there are multiple contract awards, the availableunits will be distributed equitably.
政府将提供可用的一共四个NASA对接系统 第一版 单元 使用不收费的基础上。如果有多个合同售出,可用的单元将被合理分配。
The first NDS flight unitwill be available in February 2016 (the other units will be available later inthe same year).The commercial companies will be responsible for any NDS systemabove this quantity and must determine their approach to obtain or buildadditional NDSunits.
Another option is forgovernment to provide NDS Engineering Data for the commercial crew provider tobuild the NDS. The preliminary data (build-to-print) would be available inNovember, 2014 and the final data would be available by June 2016.
另一种选择是商业载人供应商建立NDS,而政府为此提供NDS工程数据 。(建立到印刷电路板上)的初步数据 将在2014年11月可用,最终数据将在2016年6月有效。
Another potential optionwould be for thecommercial crew provider to design and build its own uniquedocking system thatis compatible with NASA requirements (under the SSP 50808Document). If thisoption is chosen by a commercial crew provider, theGovernment would notfurnish any hardware, data, or services for the dockingsystem of the company.
另一个潜在的选择将是关于商业载人供应商设计和建立自己独特对接系统,(它)兼容NASA要求(根据SSP 50808文件)。如果 由 商业载人提供商 选择此选项,政府不会为公司的对接系统提供任何硬件、数据、或服务。
Crew Search and Rescue (SAR) Services:
Mr.Mango indicated during the conference that “NASA retains the responsibility toensure a crew (search and rescue)capability exists for ascent and reentryphases of flight”.
However,the company still has certain responsibilitiesas it is required to ensure safelanding in emergency situations (pad/ascentaborts or emergencyre-entry/landings), is required to provide crew survivalcapability for 24 hoursafter landing and must also provide for operationalinterface and coordinationwith NASA for the search and rescue capability.
但是,公司仍然有一定的责任,因为它是需要确保在紧急情况下安全着陆(发射台/上升中止或紧急 再入/着陆),需要提供24小时后登陆的乘员生存的能力,还必须提供操作界面与协调
Thecompany’s design will be required tointerface with the search and rescueservices in order to ensure the survivalof the crew.
The commercialcrew provider will also berequired to provide items which are specific to theirdesign such as proceduresto extract the crew from the vehicle (e.g., hatchopening, hazards to avoid),training support for search and rescue forces (e.g.,vehicle mockups, trainers)and rescue equipment (e.g., floatation collar, seaanchor, ascending ladder).
商业载人供应商也将被要求提供他们的设计,如程序特定的物品从运载器(例如提取乘员,舱口开幕,以避免危险),搜索和救援部队的培训支持(例如,运载器 模型?,教练员)和救援设备(例如,浮选领,海锚,升梯)。
Third Party Liability:
Anitem of interest in the draft RFP that could have an impact on the price of thecertification test flights and of thepost-certification missions is therequirement to obtain third party liabilityinsurance for activities that arenot covered by the licensing of the FederalAviation Administration (FAA). Thirdparty liability includes damage to or loss of property owned by a third party or third party personal injury orcasualty.
RFP草案的兴趣,可能影响价格的认证项目 测试飞行和认证后的任务是要求获得第三者责任险的活动不包括由美国联邦航空管理局(FAA)的许可。第三者责任包括由第三方或第三方人身伤害或拥有的财产损坏或遗失。
Thedraft RFP indicates that FAA licensingis not required for certification testflights but should be required forcontract launch and reentry operationsperformed under post certificationmissions.
RFP草案表示不需要认证,FAA许可 测试飞行,但应要求合同发射和再入操作下进行认证后的任务。
Thecommercial crew provider’s liabilityassociated with activities related tolaunch and reentry operations under apost-certification mission will begoverned by the FAA license and its relatedlaws and regulations.
Forall contract activities not subject toan FAA license, the draft RFP includes aclause on third party liability thatrequires the commercial company to obtain,for each flight or mission, themaximum amount of insurance below $500Mthat isavailable in the commercial marketplace at a reasonable cost.
Thedraft RFP indicates that third-partyclaims above this insured amount but notexceeding $1.5 billion can besubmitted to the government for payment.
Commercial Passengers and Non-NASA Cargoand Payload:
Another item of interest inthe draft RFP that could impact the price of a post certification missions isthe presence of commercial passengers or of non-NASA cargo or payloads.
在RFP草案中另一个有趣的条款,可能会影响后期认证任务的价格,(这) 是 有 商务旅客 或者非NASA货物或有效载荷 这种情况出现
According to the draft RFP,a commercial crew provider can propose to manifest a commercial passenger on apost certification mission.
根据RFP草案,一个商业载人供应商 可以在 认证后期任务上 提出一个 商用乘客名单
It can also propose non-NASA cargo orpayload. The draft RFP indicatesthat NASA maintains the right to approve or disapprove the passenger(s), thenon-NASA cargo or the payload proposed to bemanifested on a post certificationmission.
它也可以提出非NASA的货物或有效载荷。 RFP草案表明,NASA坚守着有权批准或不批准该客运服务(s)、非NASA货物或有效载荷建议在认证后任务加以体现(中)。
The commercial crew providermust addressthe post-certification mission price adjustment or other in-kindconsiderationfor NASA in exchange for allowing the commercial passenger or thenon-NASAcargo or payload onboard.
商业载人提供商必须解决 的认证任务后调价或其他实物交换NASA在允许商业旅客或非NASA的的货物或有效载荷板载代价。
Competition during CCtCap:
Mr. Mango indicated at theconference that NASA ideally would like to maintain competition by having morethan one provider during the CCtCap phase. “We’re encouraging competition,which allows industry to provide the safest system, in a cost-effective manner,whilepushing technology development and innovation. Down selecting to a single providercould limit these benefits.”
芒果先生在会上表示,NASA理想中 想维持有一个以上的供应商在CCtCap阶段的竞争。“我们鼓励竞争,这使得行业提供最安全的系统,在一个符合成本效益的方式中,同时推动技术开发和创新。降低选择到单一的供应商可能会限制这些好处。“
Phil McAlister, Director ofthe Commercial Spaceflight Development, echoed these sentiments during a recentpresentation to the Commercial Space Committee of the NASA Advisory Council(NAC). Heindicated that “prematurely eliminating competition is one of theprimary risks to NASA satisfying the goals and objectives of the (CommercialCrew) Program.”
菲尔. 麦卡利斯特,商业太空飞行开发总监,在最近一次演讲中,对NASA的咨询委员会(NAC)商业太空委员会,回荡了这些情绪。他表示,过早地消除竞争,对于 NASA满足的(商用乘员)计划目的和目标,是主要的风险之一。”
Mr. McAlister also addedthat “competitionamong more than one industry partner during the developmentphase is importantto safety and cost effectiveness.”
He indicated that acompetitive environment“provides strong incentive for companies to meet andexceed NASA’s safetycertification requirements,” that it “prevents NASA from becomingdependent ona sole provider regardless of safety or cost implications” and thatit“supports cost-sharing by industry which augments government fundsandencourages industry partners to “stay in the game” whenencounteringdifficulties.”
他表示,竞争激烈的环境提供了强有力的激励企业满足并超越 NASA的安全认证要求,防止 NASA从唯一供应商越来越依赖于不顾安危或成本的影响”  并且它   “支持费用分摊增强政府资金的行业,并鼓励业界合作伙伴   “留在游戏中”   当遇到困难。
However, Mr. McAlisteradmitted that NASA is unlikely to continue carrying three providers during theCCtCap phase.
但是,麦卡利斯特先生承认, NASACCtCap阶段不太可能维持三个供应商运转。
Interestingly, the draft RFPhas a clause that could allow, under certain circumstances, new entrants afterthe initial 2014 CCtCap awards. The clause indicates that “NASA may conduct asubsequent(CCtCap) competition due to the loss of an existing (crewtransportation system) provider or if there are additional future NASArequirements for certified crew transportation.”
有趣的是 ,RFP草案有一个条款,可以允许,在某些情况下,在最初的2014 CCtCap 发售之后 新的加入者。该条款表明,由于现有(乘员运输系统)供应商的缺失,或者如果NASA对于认证乘员运输 需要有 附加的未来,NASA可能进行后续(CCtCap)的竞争
The final version of the RFPshould take into account feedback from industry on the draft version and shouldbe releasedin October 2013. Interested companies should have a few months torespond to the request since proposals for CCtCap should be due in December2013.
Awards for CCtCap arecurrently planned forJuly 2014.

NASA, Commercial Crew Partners FundAdditional Development Milestones
Aug. 15, 2013    -- RELEASE 13-251

NASA announced Thursday it is adding someadditional milestones to agreements with three U.S.commercial companies that are developing spaceflight capabilities that couldeventually provide launch services to transport NASA astronauts to theInternational Space Station from U.S. soil.
NASA周四宣布,它在与正在提供航天能力开发的三家美国商业公司的(合同)协议中, 增加了一些额外的里程碑 ,这(种能力)最终能够 从美国本土发射摆渡NASA宇航员到ISS。
NASA is supporting the development of thesecapabilities through its Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap)initiative. As part of this initiative, NASA is exercising and funding specificadditional milestones for these next generation space transportation systems.The agency has extended the Space Act Agreements (SAAs) for The Boeing Companyof Houston, Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) of Hawthorne,Calif., and Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) ofLouisville, Colo., to include one or two additionalmilestones each under CCiCap.
NASA正在通过其商业载人综合能力(CCiCap)倡议去支持这些能力的开发。作为这一举措的一部分,NASA针对该下一代太空运输系统,训练和资助特别的附加里程碑。该机构已经延长了 与 休斯敦的波音公司,加州霍桑的太空探索技术公司(SpaceX),科罗拉多州路易斯维尔的内华达山脉公司(SNC)的 太空行动协议(SAAs),在每个CCiCap(协议)下(增加)计入一个或两个附加的里程碑
"Our commercial partners are on-trackdeveloping innovative, new space systems that can safely, reliably andaffordably transport astronauts and end the gap in U.S.human spaceflight capabilities," said William Gerstenmaier, associateadministrator for Human Exploration and Operations at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "Theseadditional milestones are specifically targeted by NASA and our partners toreduce risk and improve development efforts."
“我们的商业合作伙伴是赛道上的发展创新,新的太空系统,可以安全地,可靠,经济的运输宇航员和美国的间隙到底 载人航天能力,“ 威廉葛斯坦迈亚说,副主管 载人探险与业务  在华盛顿NASA总部。“专门针对这些额外的里程碑 NASA和我们的合作伙伴,以降低风险和提高 开发力度。“
In their respective CCiCap SAAs, which wereawarded in August 2012, NASA's partners listed optional milestones that couldbe exercised to continue the development and maturation of their space systems.After negotiation with the partners, NASA decided to fund revised portions ofexisting CCiCap optional milestones and extend the period of performance forthe CCiCap SAAs from May 2014 to August 2014. The industry partners also willbe contributing financially to the execution of these milestones. Therevisions, in the form of amendments to the SAAs, are posted online at:
2012年8月被授予的,在他们各自的CCiCap SAAS中,NASA的合作伙伴列出了可以实行的可选里程碑,以继续开发和成熟化其太空系统。经过与合作伙伴的谈判, NASA决定资助经过修订的现有CCiCap可选里程碑,同时 延长CCiCap SAAs的履行期间,从20145月至20148。行业合作伙伴,也将对执行这些里程碑提供财政捐助。这些修订,SaaS的形式修订,贴在网上:
Themilestones are:
-- Boeing Spacecraft Safety Review. NASA'sinvestment is $20 million and the milestone is planned to be accomplished inJuly 2014.
-- SpaceX Dragon Parachute Tests. NASA'sinvestment is $20 million and the milestone is planned to be accomplished overseveral months culminating in November 2013.
-- SNC Incremental Critical Design Review#1. NASA's investment is $5 million and the milestone is planned to beaccomplished in October 2013.
-- SNC Incremental Reaction Control SystemTesting #1. NASA's investment is $10 million and the milestone is planned to beaccomplished in July 2014.
- 波音飞船安全评审。 NASA的投资为0.20亿,同时该里程碑计划将在20147月完成。
-  SpaceX龙降落伞测试。 NASA的投资为0.20亿,同时该里程碑计划最终将在201311月(前)的几个月内完成。
-  SNC增加的关键设计评审#1 NASA的投资为500万,该里程碑计划到201310月完成。
-  SNC增加的反作用控制系统测试#1 NASA的投资为1000万,同时该里程碑计划将在20147月完成。
These milestones each reduce risks, advancethe partners' development efforts or accelerate schedules consistent with thegoals of CCiCap. NASA plans to use fiscal year 2014 funding for the totalgovernment investment of $55 million. Funding these optional milestones doesnot alter or affect NASA's acquisition strategy for the agency's CommercialCrew Program.
这些里程碑 与  降低风险、推进合作伙伴的开发力度、加快CCiCap时间表  的目标一致。 使用NASA计划2014财年经费占政府总投资0.55亿美元。资助这些可选的里程碑,并不会改变或影响 NASA代理公司的收购策略 商业载人计划。
While NASA works with U.S. industry partners to developand advance new commercial space capabilities, the agency also is developingthe Orion spacecraft and the Space Launch System (SLS), a crew capsule andheavy-lift rocket to provide an entirely new capability for human exploration.Designed to be flexible for launching spacecraft for crew and cargo missions,SLS and Orion will expand human presence beyond low-Earth orbit and enable newmissions of exploration in the solar system, including to an asteroid and Mars.
NASA与美国产业界合作伙伴的发展和推进新 商业太空能力的,该机构还正在开发 猎户座飞船 太空发射系统(SLS),一个乘员舱和 重型起飞的火箭提供了一个全新的能力 载人探索。设计是灵活的发射 航天器的乘员和货物的任务,SLS和猎户座将扩大人类的存在超越低地球轨道 给力的新任务探索 太阳系,包括小行星和火星。

Government Shutdown Affects Orion,Commercial Crew Work
Posted by Doug Messier on October 15, 2013,at 10:34 am in News

Tags :波音公司,CST - 100,龙,追梦,猎鹰9,洛克希德·马丁公司,美国航空航天局,猎户座,内华达山脉公司,SpaceX公司。

Space News has a couple of reports on howthe two-week long government shutdown is affecting America’s efforts to develop newhuman spacecraft:

Sierra NevadaCorporation “has hit a literal wall in its test program because of theshutdown…..A full-scale test article of the company’s Dream Chaser lifting-bodyspacecraft is locked up and inaccessible at NASA Dryden Flight Research Centerinside Edwards Air Force Base in California.”
内华达山脉公司:“因为(政府)关闭,其测试程序已经撞上一面横墙 ..... 公司追梦升力体航天器的一个全尺寸测试体,锁定在人迹罕至NASA德莱顿飞行研究中心,(地点位于)加州爱德华兹空军基地内。“

The company had planned a series of fivemore captive-carry flights, including an automated descent and landing test.Those tests, which are worth $15 million, will be conducted after the shutdownends.

SpaceXhas had to delay a safety review scheduled for thismonth that is worth a $50 million payment from NASA. The company says thefunding is easier to handle than the lack of access to NASA’s experts who areproviding input on the Dragon spacecraft the company is human rating.

“‘Anyfinancial impact from the government shutdown is manageable on our end,’”SpaceX spokeswoman Emily Shanklin told SpaceNews in an Oct. 9 email. ‘We are ina good place with respect to the October milestone, but an extended governmentshutdown prevents the day-to-day interactions with our NASA counterparts thatkeep the program moving forward.’”
“任何来自政府关闭的财务影响对于我们的(最终)结果是可以控制的”,“ SpaceX 发言人艾米莉尚克林在10月9日的电子邮件中告诉SpaceNews。 “就十月里程碑(来说?)我们处在一个好位置, 但是延长了的政府关门,阻碍了NASA同行与我们一天一天的互动,(这些互动)保持该项目向前发展。“

Boeing does not have any CST-100 milestonesscheduled for October, so it is not affected very much by the governmentshutdown.
波音CST – 100在10月份没有任何里程碑,所以政府关闭对它不是很受影响。

Lockheed Martin is trying to get NASA togive it access to the Kennedy Space Centerso it can continue to prepare the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle for a 2014unmanned test flight.

Commercial Crew Request for Proposals Finalizes Development and Certification Process
NASA took another step Tuesday to restore an American capability to launch astronauts from U.S. soil to the International Space Station by the end of 2017, subject to the availability of adequate funding. The agency's Commercial Crew Program (CCP) requested proposals from U.S. companies to complete development of crew transportation systems that meet NASA certification requirements and begin conducting crewed flights to the space station.
NASA周二采取了另一个步骤,提供适当充足的资金,以恢复从美国本土在2017年底发射美国宇航员到ISS的能力。该机构的商业载人计划( CCP )要求美国公司完成建议开发该乘员运输系统,以满足NASA认证的要求,并开始进行载人飞行到空间站。
…          …

This phase of the CCP, called Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap), will enable NASA to ensure a company's crew transportation system is safe, reliable and cost-effective. The certification process will assess progress throughout the production and testing of one or more integrated space transportation systems, which include rockets, spacecraft and ground operations. Requirements under CCtCap also will include at least one crewed flight test to the space station before certification can be granted.
CCP的这一阶段,叫做商业载人运输能力( CCtCap ),将 给力 NASA ,以确保公司的乘员运输系统安全,可靠和具有成本效益。认证过程将评估一个或多个综合太空运输系统的生产和测试的进程,其中包括火箭、航天器和地面操作。在CCtCap要求下,将包括至少一个到ISS 载人飞行测试,然后可以授予认证。

…    … …
As with all of NASA's human spaceflight activities, astronaut safety will be a priority. CCtCap ensures a strong emphasis on crew safety through its requirements, including NASA insight throughout development and thorough testing of the space transportation systems.
与所有NASA载人航天活动一样,宇航员的安全将是一个优先(考虑)。 CCtCap确保乘员的安全非常重视通过其要求,包括 NASA洞察整个 开发和全面测试 太空运输系统。
…      …       …

NASA expects to award one or more CCtCap contracts no later than September 2014.
CCtCap is the second phase of a two-phased effort that began last year. It builds on the accomplishments of a first certification phase, called Certification Products Contracts (CPC). CPC required companies to deliver a range of products that establish a baseline for their integrated system certification. CCtCap is open to any company with systems at the design maturity level consistent with the completion of the first certification phase.
CCtCap是从去年开始的两个阶段工作的第二阶段。它建立在第一阶段认证所取得的成就之上,(即)所谓的认证产品合约( CPC )。CPC需要公司(们)为其集成体系认证提交一系列建立一个基线的产品。CCtCap开放给任何公司,(前提是一致与首次认证阶段完成的设计成熟度水平的系统。
CCtCap contractors will plan, manage and execute long-term production and operational plans for their systems. The firm-fixed price contracts, based on the Federal Acquisition Regulations, will include at least one crewed flight test to verify the spacecraft can dock to the space station and that all its systems perform as expected. CCtCap contracts also will include at least two and as many as six crewed, post-certification missions to enable NASA to meet its station crew rotation requirements.
CCtCap的承包商将为他们(自己)的系统制定计划、管理和执行长期的生产经营。一个固定价格合同,基于联邦采购条例,将包括至少一次载人飞行测试来验证航天器可以停靠到该空间站,并且其所有系统达到预期效果。 CCtCap合同还将包括至少两人以及多达六人的乘组,认证后的任务使NASA满足其空间站乘员轮换要求。
While CCtCap will enable NASA to acquire a capability to transport crews to the space station, systems developed by U.S. industry can be marketed and used by other customers.

Commercial Crew Companies Stay on Track for Milestone Completions                     on December 23, 2013, at 12:08 pm

WASHINGTON (NASA PR) — NASA’s Commercial Crew Program partners continue to meet all scheduled milestones, bringing the nation closer to its goal of having a U.S. capability for human access to space and ending reliance on foreign vehicles.
SpaceX recently completed five milestones:
  • The Human Certification Plan Review, which laid out SpaceX’s plans for certification of the design of the spacecraft, launch vehicle, and ground and mission operations systems.
  • The On-Orbit and Entry Preliminary Design Review, which successfully demonstrated that the overall system preliminary design for orbit, rendezvous and docking with the ISS and entry light regimes met the company’s requirements with acceptable risks and within schedule constraints.
  • The In-Flight Abort Test Review, which demonstrated the maturity of the in-flight abort test article design and the concept of operations for the abort test.
  • The Safety Review, which demonstrated the crew transportation system design and SpaceX processes.
  • The Falcon 9 Flight Review, which demonstrated Falcon 9 launch vehicle performance, including structures, dynamics, propulsion, avionics and software.
Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) recently completed three milestones:
  • The Engineering Test Article Flight Test, which was SNC’s final Commercial Crew Development Round 2 (CCDev2) milestone.
  • The Integrated System Safety Analysis Review #2, which demonstrated that the Dream Chaser Space System Safety documentation maturity had advanced to a post-preliminary design review level.
  • The Certification Plan Review, which defined SNC’s top-level certification strategy and detailed verification and validation planning.

Boeing recently completed six milestones:
  • The Dual Engine Centaur LO2 duct test, which characterized subsystem functionality and will inform the overall system design.
  • The Orbital Maneuvering and Attitude Control Engine Development test, which supports component, subsystem and integrated spacecraft development efforts.
  • The Mission Control Center Interface Demonstration Test, which demonstrated data links between the Johnson Space Center Mission Control Center and Boeing’s Avionics Software Integration Facility as a precursor to future integrated simulation capability for flight operations training.
  • The Certification Plan Review, which enabled Boeing to define its strategy leading to a crewed flight test.
  • The Avionics Software Integration Lab Multi-String Demo Test, which successfully demonstrated the closed loop Guidance, Navigation and Control flight software for the ascent flight phase.
  • The Service Module Propulsion System Critical Design Review, which tested the complex system of thrusters, engines and control network for production and integration with the CST-100 spacecraft.
Blue Origin, which extended its CCDev2 agreements with NASA on an unfunded basis earlier this year, completed the Engine Mission Duty Cycle test milestone. This test demonstrated that the primary launch vehicle propulsion can support all phases of flight, including launch, coast phase and engine relight for launch vehicle landing.

看看SpaceX能不能继续创造奇迹吧。波音实力最强,但也最中规中矩。  发表于 2014-2-27 15:51
所以相对来说,在CCiCap比赛跑道上,波音是排在最前面的运动员。  发表于 2014-2-27 15:22
到结束,虽然都差5个里程碑,但是波音的分母最大(20)。而且对于SPX和SNC,剩下的都是硬骨头。  发表于 2014-2-27 15:20

  NASA监察长办公室官员在2013年发布的一份报告中警告,不要将所有鸡蛋放在一个篮子里。投资一家公司意味着,如果该公司出现意外状况,NASA将失去仅存的载人航天能力。另外,竞争的缺失必将引起项目价格的上升。(中国航天系统科学与工程研究院 李金钊 侯丹)  




  NASA载人探索及任务运行部的副部长葛斯坦迈亚(William Gerstenmaier)表示,美国商业航天工业在研发下一代低地轨道载人运输系统上取得了巨大的进步,但要按照NASA认证需求完成这些系统并不容易。
  早在2008年,NASA和私营航天公司就曾经就PopMech合同存在争论。公司官员曾抱怨合同中并未明确哪一方拥有工程的最终决定权。新政府审查委员会有权否决硬件设计。一些内部人士将密集的NASA控制同联邦航空局的简单飞机适航性的认证作对比。NASA时任商业航天部部长菲尔·麦卡利斯特(Phil McAlister)表示,由于这些系统涉及宇航员们的安危,而NASA在确保载人航天器安全方面的经验是不可或缺的,因此NASA希望、也有必要深度参与到这些系统的研发过程中来。
  最后一个令人担忧的问题是合同的形式。由于CCtCAP采用固定价格合同,意味着中标公司将获得固定费用,也就意味着成本上涨会使波音、太空探索技术或内华达山脉公司的利润下降。而成本加成模式的合同则会承担所有开销,并提供保障利润的额外资金。如果NASA要求进行更多的测试,公司将不得不牺牲利润开展额外的测试。2007年,NASA官员尝试通过分担测试成本的方式消除这类担忧,而且CCtCAP也似乎对此类做法进行限制。但当载人任务即将开展之时,工程争端将变成权力斗争。(中国航天系统科学与工程研究院 李金钊 侯丹)  




  比起太空站物资补给,还有更多的严峻问题。如果NASA多“放手”的方法奏效,将为美国保住数亿美元的资金和许多工程师的岗位,还能通过降低入轨费用,重振美国发射业务。如果NASA有希望在保证宇航员任务期间安全的前提下,找到明智的方式工作,其他政府机构将能以更精简、更明智的方式开展工作。 (中国航天系统科学与工程研究院 李金钊 侯丹)

这次乌克兰事件,有没有可能使商业载人项目收益?比如追加投资、特别拨款、加速进程之类。有相应的风声么 ...

        和俄罗斯的载人合同已经签到了 2017年了,如果关系没有太拧,这合同估计是不会变化的。
而美国商业载人最终走上轨道,按现在的计划也是2017年,所以,追加投资等加速行为已经为时已晚,除非美俄彻底翻脸  -- 这是我的一点看法。
