SpacePlane Project

summary

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.

Target Market

We will approach markets both in outer space and on Earth

Outer space:
Ballistic flight service

弾道飛行サービス

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.

On earth:
Multipurpose observation service

多目的観測サービス

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
PDAS-X04 Unmanned 5m 50kg 〜10km Observation
PDAS-X07 Unmanned 12m 100kg 110km Microgravity experiments

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.
