Tachyon Aerospace was founded with a vision of building an advanced vehicle that would begin the next generation of space flight. In short, we sought to design a true workhorse for the aerospace industry.
We are designing and testing technologies, for the TAV-1 and other Tachyon Aerospace products, which provide indispensable advancements in the areas of propulsion, alternative fuels, on-board fuel production, radiation and EMP shielding, aircraft smart skin, med-bed, and communications.
The TAV-1 Space Craft is an integrated flight system with 35 years of research, development, and design behind it. All sub-systems are now developed, tested, and matured to a Technology Readiness Level of 3-4.
Because of the low cost and amount of time required to launch the TAV-1, and its quick turnaround, it is an ideal craft for inexpensive satellite deployment, retrieval, and servicing.
The TAV-1’s low cost deployment enables more frequent transport of crew and supplies to the International Space Station (and future space stations), as well as expedited maintenance and updates.
With a large payload and the self-fueling Tachyon Aerospace MX-2 Engines, the TAV-1 makes an ideal vehicle for deployment and retrieval of rovers for interstellar exploration and research.
The unique design and function of the cockpit enable the TAV-1 to provide a platform for experimentation in orbit within several scientific, chemical, medical, and horticultural disciplines.
The Tachyon Aerospace has been developing and testing Radiation Shielding against solar flares, heavy ions in the background radiation, and EMPs. Our findings show our solution can protect and safeguard space craft, satellites, crew, supplies, electronics, and communication systems.
Through 6 years of development, the Tachyon Aerospace Smart Skin has been developed, tested and matured over a period of 6 years. The Smart Skin measures airflow, temperature, hull strain, and magnetic field strengths and will aid in the positioning of the plasma. The system is also designed to help with radiation shielding, mitigate heat buildup, and reduce aerodynamic drag force.
The TAV-1 is fitted with our Med Bed technology to prevent and treat a wide variety of ailments and sickness crew or passengers might experience during space flight.
