Uncrewed Orion/service module with DBRM(Deimos Boulder Retrieval Mission) on SLS(NextSTEP)

December 29, 2014

NextSTEP proposal

And our proposal, EDIT 7 December 2015


I need to write a better blog entry!
(A)(1) Orion separates from SLS upper stage and maneuvers to dock and extract ARM(practice)
(A)(2) Orion separates from ARM
(A)(3) Orion and ESA service module does a Mars flyby back to Earth to test ECLSS and orion EDL
ARM alone breaks at Mars and performs Deimos boulder retrieval and brings it back to Lunar retrograde orbit
If SLS can not loft both spacecraft to Mars then loft ARM on Falcon Heavy

see page 15

Can ARM be co manifested with Orion?






(A)(1) Early uncrewed shakedown cruise of Orion/service module on a Mars flyby mission with the ARM derived spacecraft as a secondary payload

(A)(2) test ECLSS with living organisms

(A)(3)Use robonaught as a vivisectionist to recover tissues and preserve in freezer (reproductive tissues)

IE is time to fly Professor Rappolee/Pusheck reproductive research

(B)(1) Fly DBRM as secondary payload

(B)(2)Needs NEO Scout as visual observer for boulder retrieval

(B)(3) uncrewed pathfinder for crewed asteroid mission

(B)(4)Pathfinder for prepositioned/uncrewed Orion SKYLAB-II at Deimos

On Page page 29 on the following document is a Falcon Heavy version of the ARM derived spacecraft with two engines that can bring back 10 to 20 tons of boulders from Deimos
