看来Bigelow的空间站很快要提上日程了

这被CCtCap选型延误了近两年时间啊……
既然毛子的充气舱段要在它的空间站上进行长期实验,土鳖的类似项目也可以上天宫测试啊。
我记得深圳有个搞大型充气结构建筑的民营企业,而且中国防弹衣材料剑走偏锋专精高强度聚乙烯纤维并大量出口(这也是比奇洛充气舱的外壁材料,接近芳纶3的强度,非常廉价的价格,耐氧化,防紫外辐射可通过加铝箔外层解决),类似的项目难度不大。

记者会上提到BEAM的几个技术细节
BEAM inflation will take 4.5 minutes;
Contracted for many hyper-velocity impact tests; results are better than for aluminum.

记者会上透露的关于BA-330的信息,很好奇为什么要两个BA-330舱段,一个BA-330就可以容纳整个ISS 7人乘员组,太空游有这么大的市场吗?

Modules use water tiles to further enhance protection from radiation
Module propulsion system will use water
Bigelow Aerospace to focus on having two BA-330 space stations available for deployment in 2018

Robert Bigelow的孙女Blair Bigelow加入Bigelow Aerospace

Blairbigelow
Hi Mr. Bruno!
My name is Blair Bigelow and a few weeks ago I officially joined my grandfather's aerospace company, Bigelow Aerospace. I'm only 23 and my education has been in business, but it is my responsibility to not only become familiar with the business side of BA, but to become familiar with our entire spacecraft from bulkhead to bulkhead as well. Basically, get to know everything there is about the company. As you can imagine this is a daunting challenge to say the least. What advice could you give me to help make this a reality? (By the way, I am a HUGE fan of your twitter account)

ULA President & CEO ToryBruno
Love your product! Can't wait to visit your plant.
Dream big. Trust your own intuition. Be curious.
Listen to your Grandfather (Call Dr. George Sowers when that doesn't work)
And... Launch everything on ULA rockets

BEAM module waits for transportion to the ISS
Bigelow Aerospace is still awaiting word on when their Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) will be transported to the International Space Station (ISS). Engineers at Bigelow packed up the unit for transportation to Florida from their Nevada headquarters in March of this year.

The module was supposed to fly to ISS in September aboard SpaceX’s CRS-8 mission. However, that was before a Falcon 9 rocket, carrying the CRS-7 Dragon cargo ship bound for the outpost disintegrated during launch.
The Transit Habitat was a NASA project in the 1990s that was used to develop technology for expandable habitats. After the project was cancelled in 2000.


SpaceX is currently working on returning the Falcon 9 rocket to flight status after having determined that the failure was caused by a faulty mounting strut holding the helium tanks in place in the booster’s second stage.
The Return to Flight mission is scheduled to carry a series of 11 satellites for Orbcomm no earlier than sometime in November. This switch to Orbcomm from the originally scheduled SES-9 satellite will let SpaceX test the relight capability of their upgraded upper stage before it is needed on the SES flight.

CRS-8 will launch after the Orbcomm and SES missions fly. BEAM will be tucked into the trunk of the Dragon capsule. Once berthed at the orbiting lab, the station’s robotic arm will take BEAM and berth it to the aft port of the Tranquility module.

The expandable module concept has come full circle as NASA originally designed the system that Bigelow used as its foundation for the BEAM module. That module, called TransHab, would have been a four-level expandable system designed to replace a Habitation module that has since been cancelled. The expandable unit would have provided the crew with significantly more living space. The TransHab was cancelled by congress in 2000 when the space station budget was under significant pressure. Now, the TransHab technology is once again poised to expand the ISS.

The technology that gives BEAM its structure and provides protection for the crew is an amalgamation of existing materials. While BEAM manufacturing techniques have been upgraded and are regarded as a trade secret, the original TransHab module used a dozen layers to build up a one-foot-thick wall capable of absorbing micro-meteorite impacts.

The walls consist of alternating layers of foam and a material called Nextel. These layers provide impact resistance and thermal protection as the outside temperature can vary from –200 °F (–128.9 °C) in the shade to over 250 °F (121.1 °C) in sunlight. The inner structures form an airtight bladder that contains the pressurized atmosphere. Bigelow replaced the Nextel cloth with Vectran and Kevlar during the reengineering process.
TransHab was designed to provide living quarters, but BEAM is a small test article with a modest amount of space gain. BEAM expands to roughly 13 feet (3.96 m) long and 10.5 feet (3.2 m) in diameter, whereas the TransHab module was planned to be 36 feet (10.97 m) long and nearly 25 feet (7.62 m) in diameter.

While additional space for storage is welcome on the ISS, the BEAM module will not be used as living quarters during its stay at the ISS. BEAM will be a two-year test to see how the module holds pressure, protects occupants from radiation, and its effectiveness at micrometeorite impacts.

BEAM is not the first Bigelow expandable structure to soar into orbit. Genesis I is a test article that was launched in 2006. It is 14 feet (4.27 m) long and eight feet (2.44 m) in diameter. It was followed up by a second article called Genesis II in 2007. Both vehicles are still on orbit, although active operations ceased years ago. Both of these units tested expansion techniques as well as module stability and on-orbit operations, including communications.

All three of these test articles (Genesis I, Genesis II and BEAM) are demonstrations for Bigelow’s primary product, the BA-330. This module, as its name implies, will have 330 cubic meters (11,650 cubic feet) of pressurized space. No launch date has been set for a free floating BA-330 and Bigelow has not announced any potential customers, although they have hinted that several countries and private corporations are interested in the module.

Merry Christmas

On behalf of everyone at Bigelow Aerospace, we want to wish you a very merry Christmas and a joyous holiday season! We also want to express our gratitude and appreciation to our president and founder, Robert Bigelow. Beyond the significant financial investments, without his visionary leadership and immense dedication none of us would be able to take part in contributing to the history of human spaceflight.

SpaceNews的消息,Bigelow(比奇洛)陷入新年的裁员风波,150人公司要砍掉30-50人,这张图片中的很多人可能要卷铺盖卷走人了。CRS-8的测试仓打上去以后不知道会不会给公司多带来一些投资。在商用空间站这条路上,充气毕竟是个靠谱的道路。

另外有一张图片从网上搜到的,不知道是不是Bigelow(比奇洛)的产品,设计似乎不同,但是生产这个的厂商也不多。

够壮观,这个是实物还是原理样机还仅仅是一个模型?
有发射计划么?给什么任务准备的?深空载人仓还是近地轨道旅馆?

那就是个模型。视CCtCap的进度,Bigelow可能会在今年或明年启动商业空间站项目

bigelow公司在推特上对问题做了不少回复,有些内容是首次见到:
They're finally replying to some, but not all questions with the hashtag. I'm too lazy to link them all, but here are the replies so far:

- inclination of the "Bigelow Space Complex"? around 28 degrees
- refuel or reboost? Reboost from visiting vehicles
- compatible with Progress? yes
- how did Genesis I & II do? Expected 6 months of data, got 2.5 years(以前看他们网站,我还以为一直在运行呢,设计6个月活了2年半,还不错)
- allowances for radiation? "@ActsofAndrewB No allowances necessary, they are far superior to metal enclosures."
- something about dust : "@mrSpringpeace Beta cloth will cover all habitation areas. The spacecraft can accommodate EVA’s to facilitate maintenance"
- suitable for ESA's "moon village"? yes
- research institutions or tourism companies showing interest? "@ptrkueffner Yes, although, until space transportation is a reality, none of us are going anywhere"
- will it have something like CanadArm? "@HurwitzSam The Canada arm has applications under certain scenarios. However, AR&D is highly desirable"
- mods necessary for Mars Cycler or lunar base? "@Celt_Englishman Both functions are definitely possible, however, they need to be preceded by thorough use in LEO & cislunar space first."

感觉有点问题,28°倾角就不能使用Soyuz了,更别提与progress兼容了,比较合理的是40-52°。

20吨的话,回收状态下的FH问题不大,BA2100只能寄希望于SLS了,毕格罗自己说的。
