To improve our understanding of our planet and to promote the utilization of near-Earth space, we aim to establish a low cost and practical space transportation infrastructure.
Startup companies in Europe and America are beginning to enter the space sector by offering unique means of transportation to space that reduce cost significantly.
We aim to develop and operate a competitive space transportation system with our unique spaceplane concept.
We will approach markets both in outer space and on Earth
Ballistic flight service
We can provide microgravity environment during ballistic dives from high altitude for several minutes, allowing for filming and other experiments opportunities.
It can be applied to the fields of science, industry, and other services.
Multipurpose observation service
We will provide multipurpose observation service by making full use of the characteristics of unmanned spaceplane's responsiveness, mobility and crucial compatibility.
This is suitable for observations of dangerous areas that requires prompt response. (Local weather observation, large scale disaster, etc.)
Spaceplane development program
|Code name||Type||Total length||Payload||Altitude||Main applications|
High altitude atmospheric observation
|PDAS-X08||Unmanned||TBD||6,000kg||110km||Air launch to orbit payload carrier|
|PDAS-X09||Manned||18m||6 passengers + 2 pilot||110km||Commercial manned space flight|
Currently all types of vehicle are under development.
Operation will commence as soon as each development is complete.
Development and operations
PD Aerospace will lead development phase while cooperating with many universites, research institutes and partner companies.
PD Aerospace will be responsibe for production, operation support and periodical maintenance of spaceplanes during operational phase.
