J VanDomelen Much of the aerospace community has been silently watching the series of unfortunate events surrounding the Boeing Dreamliner 787 commercial airplane this year—from fuel leaks to fires, which resulted in the grounding of the entire global fleet of roughly 50 Dreamliner aircraft. Airbus, Boeing’s biggest competitor, is often a very vocal opponent. In fact, Airbus criticized Boeing for accepting considerable … Read More

J VanDomelen Are U.S. avionics and aircraft risk assessment and certification processes flawed? The defects now evident in Boeing Dreamliner 787 commercial airliners are causing the public and safety professionals to question the efficacy of current methods. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) officials investigating the cause of a short circuit in a Boeing Dreamliner 787 lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery are … Read More

J VanDomelen All eyes in the aerospace market, especially those of safety specialists, have been on Boeing and the avionics employed by its Dreamliner 787 since a Japan Airlines (JAL) commercial airplane caught fire in Boston last month. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), roughly one month after an investigation was launched, revealed that the battery was indeed responsible for the fire. NTSB Chairman … Read More

J VanDomelen I’ll admit it. I, like other geeks in the mil/aero market, have a fascination with space. It’s a passionate subject, and one about which many people have a strong opinion. Tempers are flaring around the privatization of space exploration. The Obama Administration has called for NASA to focus funds elsewhere, and partner with private industry (commercial companies) when it comes to space exploration. … Read More

J VanDomelen Elon Musk is an innovator and entrepreneur who, at the young age of just 40, has enjoyed an impressive career. In fact, today (June 28) is Musk’s birthday, and perhaps the opportune time to look back at his innovations and illustrious career. What has Musk done to date? Oh, he has founded a few ventures—including a couple mild successes, such as PayPal and Tesla Motors. (Color this geek impressed!) … Read More

Space Exploration Technologies, better known as SpaceX is a leading American space transport company, advancing the boundaries of space technology through its Falcon launch vehicles and Dragon spacecraft. Following the retirement of NASA’s Space Shuttle Program, the Falcon 9/Dragon system will take over the delivery of cargo initially, and later astronauts, to the International Space Station. In April

When the Space Shuttle retires as scheduled in June, NASA will be dependent on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft to ferry astronauts to and from the International Space Station (ISS). Based on a recent $753 million contract NASA awarded to the Russian Federal Space Agency, these outsourced services cost U.S. taxpayers roughly $63 million per seat. It’s doubtless a hefty price tag, but NASA lacks U.S.-based

J VanDomelen In recent years, privately funded companies have made many efforts to develop and test space-capable vehicles. One of the most well-known, prize-based technology encouragement activities is the Ansari X Prize, founded in 2004 by the non-profit organization the X Prize Foundation. The competition’s rules were simple: The first privately funded, non-government organization to develop a reusable, manned … Read More
