OUR VISION


With the advent of mega constellations being launched by companies like OneWeb and SpaceX, and reusable rockets lowering the cost of launches, humanity is on the brink of a massive space expansion.

Recent projections show as many as 8,000 satellites being launched over the next decade, a 7.5x increase in Low Earth Orbit. Our vision is to organize and facilitate this increased human activity in Earth orbit and beyond.

OBSTACLES


SpaceBridge Logistics was formed to address the following in-space obstacles:




Lack of protocols for space asset ownership and transfer

Currently, there is not a standard way for objects to interact in space, which is critical for space servicing to develop as an industry and for humanity to expand throughout the solar system.





Limited ability to capture, repair, and upgrade space assets

Space assets are designed with multiple layers of redundancy to operate years without a tune-up or upgrade, and cannot be serviced. Breaking this old way of thinking will make satellites less expensive, longer lasting, and able to incorporate the latest technology.





Space debris buildup and collision risk

As more objects are launched into space, our orbit is becoming more and more cluttered with inactive objects. Unfortunately, there is very little incentive for any individual organization to clean up this debris. If left unchecked, the space debris problem could become a serious limiting factor to space expansion.





space asset supply chain ecosystem

SpaceBridge Logistics is bridging the hardware and software worlds to provide the underlying protocols for a decentralized marketplace for in-space services.

Within this decentralized marketplace, each grapple target, upgrade port, and refueling valve in space is linked with a unique blockchain address and owner. This will lead to more accurate and defensible contract execution. Such a blockchain registry is critical for a widespread in-space servicing adoption.

OUR STRATEGY



1) Register Space Assets

SpaceBridge is initially focused on one simple thing: make every satellite serviceable.


Image Image



2) Perform Missions & Grow Marketplace

Working with Service Providers, Launch Providers, Customers, Insurers, and Oracles, SpaceBridge will offer a marketplace for in-space services. A Deorbit Service is demonstrated here in this graphic.


A percentage of funds generated from servicing contracts will be used to finance removal of space debris.

Roles of Spacebridge



Servicing Standards

Promote hardware protocols for space servicing





Track Space Assets

Leverage servicing standards to register and monitor space assets via software protocols





Grow Marketplace

Incentivize an ecosystem of space servicing customers and suppliers to work together





Perform Missions

Facilitate space servicing contracts among ecosystem participants





Clean Up Space Debris

Leverage funds generated from servicing contracts to finance removal of space debris





HARDWARE PROTOCOLS


Objects being launched into LEO are growing exponentially – and so is demand for a common standard.

Hardware protocols are the bridge between space assets and the SBL blockchain platform.


 
Image

Grapple Fixtures

  • Universal grappling targets for orbit modification and satellite servicing

  • A top LEO mega constellation operator has selected SBL’s grapple fixture to fly on their entire fleet of 1000+ satellites, putting this technology on 46% of all active assets in LEO.

Image

MagTags

  • USB ports for your satellites. For upgrades and replacements.

  • In 2018, NASA signed a contract to support development of this key technology.

  • In 2019, MagTags will be tested on the International Space Station.

Image

Refueling Valves

  • Refueling ports for easy on-orbit refueling.

  • In 2017, NASA agreed to support development of this standard.

  • In 2018, a leading space launch company has partnered to explore using refueling valves on upcoming missions.



SOFTWARE PROTOCOLS


The SpaceBridge software platform will become the standard interface for all public and private space entities. Through this software interface, businesses will be able to manage assets, schedule and verify services, and transfer value seamlessly.

Within this platform, each grapple target, upgrade port, and refueling valve in space is linked with a unique blockchain address and owner. This blockchain registry will lead to more accurate and defensible contract execution, which is critical for a widespread in-space servicing adoption.


 

TOKEN
