Transportation

This area bases its activity in the launch of payloads into orbit, within a particular range of mass, mission typologies and orbital destinations, which will optimize the costs dedicated to the launch. As a differential factor, the company has achieved strategic agreements with the launch provider to organize regular launch calendars, which will largely facilitate the organization of the builders and the operators of satellites, minimizing the times with no activity between the construction of a satellite and its launch. These times represent high costs to the operator for he has to keep paying the teams that will conduct operations after launch.

Customer may select the purchase of the transportation for a payload with or without insurance.

The table hereunder summarizes the destinations, maximum capacity, price per kilogram and price per kilogram insured, meaning that in the event of launch failure bringing the loss of the payload, the cost of the launch would be returned (although not the cost of the payload itself).

Lunar transportation.

Galactic Suite Easy Space has detected a growing interest to carry payloads to the lunar surface, both for scientific and commercial missions. These payloads will be offered to private, commercial, or pharmaceutical customers, and even the national agencies themselves, ESA and NASA.

Detailed studies carried out by the company along with its industrial consortium can offer complete missions with Long March launchers to land on the surface of the Moon up to 40kg payload mission at a price of 54MEur, thus 1.35MEur/kg.

Payload transportation to GEO.

Geostationary (GEO) or geosynchronous orbits (GSO) are very common, especially for communications satellites.

Galactic Suite Easy Space will carry out GEO or GSO missions for payloads up to 1.000kg load (payload) using a Long March launchers at a price of 30MEur, to be offered primarily to communications companies. It is estimated that by the nature of the orbit these releases will be devoted mainly, but also offers the possibility of shared pitches at a price of 30.000Eur/Kg.

Payload transportation to LEO.

Missions to low earth orbit (LEO) or medium earth orbit (MEO) are mainly used for Earth observation, geo-location missions, etc.

Galactic Suite Easy Space will carry out LEO and MEO missions for payloads up to 2.000kg, using Long March launchers, at a price of 27MEur. Given the type of missions to LEO, it is estimated that some of the launches can be dedicated, but most of them can be shared between payloads, at a price of 13.500Eur/kg.

Transportation of small payloads to LEO

There are many small missions of universities and private companies that look for cheaper and more regular access to space for their payloads, typically small. Currently, one of the few possibilities for these payloads is to be included as piggy backs in larger payloads launches. This brings with some specific problems of coordination with the owner of the larger payload who doesn’t want the small one jeopardize its payload deployment.

To address these missions, Galactic Suite Easy Space with China Great Wall Industry Corporation are exploring the feasibility of developing a smaller launcher to Low Earth Orbit (LEO), which will be optimized for small payloads sharing launch. It the estimated price to LEO is 4MEur for 50kg total payload, with a price per kilogram of 80.000Eur/kg.

Galactic Suite Easy Space will establish, accordingly to the demand, a launch schedule with selected flights within the possibilities offered by its preferred launch service partner, China Great Wall Industry Corporation.

Companies in the consortium will develop the engineering of the complementary equipment to adapt the customer’s payload to the selected launcher and, if necessary, the dispensers that release the payloads simultaneously.

Galactic Suite Easy Space will receive the customer’s payload to be integrated to the complementary equipment, adapters and dispensers, which will be assembled to the launcher already in China. Given the current restrictions imposed by the American regulation “International Traffic in Arms Regulation” (ITAR), only ITAR free payloads will be accepted, thus without American components.
