Design Considerations for the Space Elevator Apex Anchor and GEO Node By Peter Swan
Paperback: $8.00

The study team took on the challenge of expanding the “body of knowledge” pertaining to the Apex and Geosynchronous elements of the Space Elevator. A special effort was made to describe... More > the elements in the context of an entire Space Elevator. The report complements and expands earlier ISEC Space Elevator reports on the Climber, Operations Concept, Architectures & Roadmaps, and Earth Port. To do so, we have established; 1. A robust set of definitions within the Geosynchronous and Apex Regions, and 2. The Strategic Approach to Architectural Development of a Space Elevator< Less
Space Elevator Concept of Operations By Skip Penny et al.

While the development of Space Elevator tethers and climbers is a daunting task, their operation will leverage 50 years of satellite operations. This leads to the conclusion: Operations for a Space... More > Elevator Have NO Showstoppers Have Reasonable Costs Meet the Challenges < Less
Space Elevator Survivability Space Debris Mitigation By Cathy Swan et al.
Paperback: $5.99

The International Space Elevator Consortium has created this position paper as a recognition that the space debris problem is an engineering one and can be mitigate. The question: "Will space... More > debris be a show stopper for space elevators?" is answered emphatically - NO! The mitigation concepts presented change the issue from a perceived problem to an engineering concern; but, by no means is it a significant threat. This pamphlet illustrates how the development office for a future space elevator can attack this problem, predict probabilities of collision, and convert the concern into another manageable engineering problem.< Less
Design Considerations for Space Elevator Tether Climbers By Cathy Swan et al.

The subject selected for this 2013 study is the Space Elevator Tether Climber. The objective of the one year study was to survey current concepts and technologies related to tether climbers,... More > identify critical issues, questions, and concerns, assess their impact on the development of space elevators, and project towards the future. The following are a few of the conclusions: • The study used the concept of “constant power” as a baseline because of its ability to lower design requirements on the tether climber. • The mass breakout of 6 MT for a climber and 14 MT for customer payloads seems feasible. The estimate is that with a travel time of one week to GEO seven tether climbers can be on a tether simultaneously. • The communication architecture should be integrated into the space elevator infrastructure and nodal layout. • Solar power, as the sole source, appears achievable. • The use of laser power as the sole source also seems achievable.< Less
