1 The Role of Industry in Space Exploration David Logsdon U.S. Chamber of Commerce Space Enterprise Council November 12, 2008

2 Formed in 1999 from a forum hosted by NASA and the U.S. Department of Commerce Original focus was solely on commercial space Focus has expanded to include commercial, civil, and national security space Space Enterprise Council

3 Six working groups Space Transportation Remote Sensing GPS/PNT Space Communications Emerging Markets Export Control Policy Space Enterprise Council Present Day

4 For the past two years, the SEC has worked closely with NASA’s Exploration Systems Mission Directorate (ESMD) In January 2008, SEC Space Transportation Working Group (STWG) started Interface Standards activity for ESMD Space Enterprise Council’s Relationship with NASA

5 The Space Enterprise Council agreed to work with NASA on Lunar Standards To evaluate, prioritize, and identify lunar interface standards Focusing on commercial standards that have long term applicability to the lunar architecture Enabling Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) type solutions Identifying what would be best served by US versus International standards Identify candidate sources of those standards Space Enterprise Council’s Relationship with NASA

STWG member companies were each assigned an identified Lunar outpost functional area in which to research sources of existing U.S. and international standards. A standard source description form was created to capture each.

26 Product 3 Standard Source Description Form / Water Example Functional Area:Water STWG Focal Point: Ariel C. GattiEmail Phone(626)407-5872 Synopsis of Top Level Functional Requirements or Objectives (Based on Matrix and Scenarios)  Water quality standards exist to maintain quantifiable physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of water. The primary uses considered for such characterization are parameters which relate to drinking water, safety of human contact, and for health of ecosystems.  Water quality standards, at least as it relates to human consumption, are as applicable on Earth as on the Moon. Applicable Standard (Specific Document Info) Responsible Group/AgencyPoint of Contact (Name, email/phone) U.S. Standards:  Water quality standards exist on a national level as legislated by congress and enforced through federal agencies. One agency is the Environmental Protection Agency, an agency of the federal government charged with protecting human health and with safeguarding the natural environment.  The EPA has formed the National Drinking Water Advisory Council (NDWAC). The NDWAC is a 15-member board comprised of five members of the general public, five reps of state and local agencies, and five reps of private organizations and groups demonstrating an active interest in water hygiene and public water supply. NDWAC Chairman (acting) Gregg Grunenfelder Division of Environmental Health Washington State Dept. of Health Olympia,WA (Gregg.Grunenfelder@DOH.WA. GOV)Gregg.Grunenfelder@DOH.WA. GOV (360) 236-3050 International Standards:  The International Organization for Standardization, ISO, also maintains several standards. ISO is the world's largest developer and publisher of International Standards. It is a network of the national standards institutes of 157 countries, one member per country, with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system. - Water quality is regulated by ISO. Standards exist for water sampling, drinking water, industrial class water, sewage water, and examination of water for chemical, physical or biological properties. Water quality regulation is covered in the section of ICS 13.060. Section of ICS 91.140.60 covers the standards of water supply systems. ISO members and technical committees can be contacted via ISO website.

28 Product 3 Summary of Standards Sources STWG has created a standard standards evaluation form which contains standards sources and contact info for each functional area. In researching standards, it was noted that each functional area may be decomposed into more specific areas each of which may have identifiable standards sources (e.g. Human Factors is composed of Anthropometry, Human Factors Engineering, Physiology, Human Environments, etc.) Also noted is the need for emphasis on identification of standards organizations in addition to the standards themselves. For some functional areas, individual standards may evolve quickly (e.g. Communications) and contact with interested standards organizations will be required for proper updates. Identified international standards to date are primarily European. Additional research should consider other international organizations (for example India, Asia, etc). In discussion with NASA leadership in May 2008, it was determined that some method of evaluation should be implemented to assess the applicability, value, and integrity of the standards and sources that were being identified. Four metrics of evaluation have therefore been instituted by which to judge each standard.

29 Pervasiveness (How widespread is standard in current use? ) Applicability (Does standard apply to a space application?) Timeliness (When does standard become needed based on Temporal Assessment?) Spaceflight History (Has the standard been applied in past or current spaceflight? Industry National Global Most Widespread Use Most Directly Applicable Direct Application is Possible Specialty Nearest Term Need Based on Temporal Assessment Supports Near-Term Standard Need Supports Late-Term Standard Need Supports Mid-Term Standard Need 123 123 Applicable with Minor Adaptation Significant Modification Required Product 3 Standards Evaluation Metrics No Spaceflight History Yes, Successful Spaceflight History

30 Product 3 Evaluation Database / Human Factors Example

31 Product 3 Summary of Standards Evaluation STWG has created a standards evaluation database to facilitate judgment by NASA of the value or appropriateness of any identified standards. All STWG team collected data has been captured and evaluated in the database according to the four developed metrics. The Excel template facilitates additional inclusion of identified standards and sorting and comparison of data. Evaluation provides quick look into which standards in a given functional area are most applicable and timely; building on the previous Lunar outpost standards development work accomplished in Product 1 and Product 2. Product 3 Development Process Standards Source Description Form Standards Evaluation Metrics Standards Evaluation Database

32 Standards Evaluation Results - Summary The STWG has demonstrated that a multi-industry team can work together to develop products that are useful to NASA The STWG provides easy access to the enormous amount of participating companies’ technical knowledge The STWG has an existing network to the international space community that can be accessed by NASA

33 Standards Evaluation Results - Summary Process Provided Desired Information Scenario Centric Assessment Value Assessment & Availability Matrix List of Sources & Examples The SEC-STWG used a disciplined approach resulting in valuable products to help NASA ESMD
