We’re living at the beginning of a new economy for aerospace industries. Space resources utilisation is becoming a reality, but one of the main issues is landing. Developing non-scalable reentry systems for each mission will no longer be a suitable solution once payloads become massive. The Meteoroid Complementary Descent Module uses a universal magneto-mechanical docking system. It empowers SNC’s Dream Chaser® as a solution for near and long-term landing of samples and space resources for space agencies and companies.
Sample and resource extraction will change our economy forever. The companies that are pioneering this field today need a reliable, cheap and expandable system for landing materials without the expenses and risks of making reentry modules from scratch for each mission.

ASTREO Orbital Capsule

  • In its simplest configuration, ASTREO Core, the capsule is purely a payload dispenser, being deorbited together with EOS without separating from it at the end of its operative life. This type of configuration will be among the firsts to fly, representing just a fairing for the payload.
  • In the CL (CubeLauncher) config the Core has also a guided commercial parafoil, with the ability to perform a safe abortion at any stage of the flight, from any launch site.
  • Other configurations are currently being evaluated, including a version aimed at reentry, ASTRO Return, currently under study and with planned tests in the first flights. Another version is in evaluation, ASTREO Deep Space, aimed at extending the orbital maneuvering capabilities by using an electric tug derived from the TEV.
