NACC Mission: 

NACC Mission To provide and manage safe commercial space travel of all U.S. based commercial space vehicles launched into space or into near space orbit, while meeting all U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) and Administrator for Commercial Space Transportation (AST) statutory requirements.

NACC Vision: 

NACC Vision To be the world leader in managing commercial space vehicles To develop safe processes to ensure safe space travel from the 22 Spaceports To utilize the abundance of Colorado space industry expertise to support FAA/AST requirements

NACC Background: 

NACC Background The NACC will provide a central commercial control facility to manage space vehicle launches from: 5 approved U.S. federal Spaceports 4 approved commercial Spaceports 13 proposed commercial Spaceports Colorado needs to designation as a Spaceport—only requires Governor signing a proclamation / declaration.

NACC Background (cont): 

NACC Background (cont) Current void of control when air/space craft leaving/entering current FAA’s area of control FAA/AST is expecting approximately 691 horizontal and vertical space launches per year by 2010 FAA/AST (April 2004) just issued their first commercial manned license for a sub-orbital space flight.

NACC Background (cont.) “Recent Events” : 

NACC Background (cont.) “Recent Events” March 2004, FAA/AST published the latest economic impact study on commercial space transportation - expect significant increases in: Public Space Travel Real-time Remote Sensing Application Broadband Data Services

NACC Background (cont.) “Recent Events” : 

NACC Background (cont.) “Recent Events” March 2004, US House of Representatives passed H.R. 3752—The Commercial Space Launch Amendments Act—designed to: Encourage public space travel/tourism Encourage commercial vehicle development light-spacecraft to shuttle personnel and equipment

Colorado Strategy: 

Colorado Strategy To advocate the NACC to be located in Colorado Colorado is: Centrally located Abundance of space industry resources Highly educated and experienced space workforce separating from the four military space support facilities (Peterson, Buckley, Schriever, and Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Bases) and university graduates

Political and Legal Issues: 

Political and Legal Issues Colorado will expect to adopt the necessary state legislation and laws that must conform in the Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) to those laws and regulations established by treaties and United States Codes (U.S.C.) directly related to the operation of the NACC. The guidelines set forth by the FAA/AST that directly relate to the NACC main function of air to space launch, flight following, reentry, and traffic coordination management are as follows:

Political and Legal Issues (cont.): 

Political and Legal Issues (cont.) For flights within the new National Airspace System (NAS), the methodology to meet these challenges will incorporate the following process for commercial space flight activity. The main requirements for those seeking access to space and the NAS are: U.N. Registration License Requirements Insurance Requirements

U.N. Registration: 

U.N. Registration Consultation is the first consideration and requirement of the licensing process The FAA/AST will provide guidance and schedule to meet requirements Registration takes place with the application and licensing process by the State department and the FAA.

Licensing Process: 

Licensing Process The Licensing process is handled by the FAA/AST Licensing and Safety division Consultation and Registration - FAA/AST Policy Review – FAA/AST Safety Review – FAA/AST Payload Review – AST/Designated U.S. Govt. Agencies – determined by payload Financial Review – FAA/AST, DOT Environmental and Compliance Monitoring – NEPA, FAA Officers

License Types: 

License Types Types of licenses that will be required: Launch Specific One or more launches of same class vehicle Operations from single launch site Expiration date is specified in license Launch Operators License Single site with specified range of parameters Same class vehicles and specified payloads License is valid for a five year period

Insurance Requirements: 

Insurance Requirements Insurance requirements for licensed launch activities in the United States of America are covered by the regulations set forth in the following: 49 U.S.C. 70101–70119; 49 CFR 1.47 Definition: The legal document that establishes liability for commercial space launch activities Categories of Reference: TITLE 49: TRANSPORTATION SUBTITLE: COMMERCIAL SPACE TRANSPORTATION CHAPTER 701: COMMERCIAL LAUNCH ACTIVITIES

Insurance Requirements (cont.): 

Insurance Requirements (cont.) Third Party Casualty: Not to exceed the lesser of: $500 Million Or Maximum available on world market Property Damages: Not to exceed the lesser of: $100 Million Or Maximum available on world market Colorado must address needs to prevent encroachment barriers to establish and meet spaceport criteria. i.e: Runway length minimums, overrun requirements, noise abatement, restrictions, local approach and departures, safety requirements and emergency procedures.

Future Considerations:
