Prospect Dynamics is developing technology for space mining and related applications that will fill capability gaps in our customer’s current architectures and plans.
Within the industry, there is a surge of commercial development poised to displace the historical government-led approach to aerospace. Companies are addressing the challenges of lowering cost-to-orbit, making tourists astronauts, and are looking toward the inevitable mining of resources. We are developing the equipment necessary to enable that step forward.
Specific gaps in the industry’s capability to mine in space represent challenges outside the focus of the mainstream and are opportunities for a new entrant. We intend to capitalize by adapting off-the-shelf technologies in novel ways for leverage into this emerging market. The products we are developing will be key technologies in support of NASA’s proposed asteroid capture mission and the asteroid prospecting goals of private companies.
