Lost in Space: Curbing the Orbital Debris Threat

By Lucy Birmingham Other private-sector players joining the space cleanup competition include California-based Global Aerospace Corporation. The company is now developing its Gossamer Orbit Lowering Device (GOLD), designed to de-orbit satellites and large orbital debris. The patented system uses an ultra-thin balloon “envelope” that attaches to debris and inflates with gas. The resulting atmospheric drag enables the ultralight balloon to lower the […]

Winged Aerobot Could Explore Titan

Inflatable technology specialist Global Aerospace Corp. (GAC) and Northrop Grumman are to develop a buoyant vehicle to explore Titan, a moon of Saturn, under a NASA small-business research contract. The team will develop the Titan Winged Aerobot (TWA) concept and produce a proof-of-concept vehicle for Earth-based testing. The design is inspired by Northrop’s lifting entry/atmospheric […]

Flying Aerobot drone is being designed to soar in the skies of Titan

In preparation for the Cassini probe’s departure from Saturn, NASA is looking to sent a drone on the giant’s moon Titan. The agency has awarded a Small Business Innovation Research ﴾SBIR﴿ Phase 1 contract for the early‐stage development of these vehicles. Two private companies, Global Aerospace Corp. and Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, have been picked by NASA to design […]

Hybrid Balloon/Glider Designed to Wing its Way Through Titan’s Atmosphere

With a suspected subterranean sea of liquid water, oceans of methane on the surface and an atmosphere that could give rise to non-water-based life, it’s no surprise that scientists are keen to learn more about Saturn’s moon Titan. To that end, a new joint project between the Global Aerospace Corporation (GAC) and Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems (NGAS) is developing […]

NASA selects Global Aerospace & Northrop Grumman for Titan Atmospheric Rover

“Titan is a cold, harsh environment that poses many technical challenges for any lighter-than-air exploration platform, but TWA has the potential to overcome these challenges with simple yet innovative engineering approaches to pressure management, lift generation, and maneuverability,” said Dr. Benjamin Goldman, principal investigator of the Phase I SBIR effort.
