Guests: Robert (Bob) Meurer of ATK; Dr. Peter Wegner of ORS; Fred Slane of Space Infrastructure, Inc. You are invited to comment, ask questions, and discuss the Space Show program/guest(s) on the Space Show blog, http://thespaceshow.wordpress.com. Comments, questions, and any discussion must be relevant and applicable to Space Show programming. Transcripts of Space Show programs are not permitted without prior written consent from The Space Show (even if for personal use) & are a violation of the Space Show copyright. We welcome you to this series of three recorded interviews from the SmallSat Conference 2012. After each interview is completed, there is about a ten second pause followed by the next interview. The program concludes when the final interview with Fred Slane is completed. I was assisted with all three interviews by Dr. John Jurist who was also present for the SmallSat Conference. Our first interview was with Robert (Bob) Meurer of ATK. Mr. Meurer is the VP of Business Development in the Commercial and International Programs, Space Mission Systems with ATK Aerospace in Beltsville, MD. During our half hour with Bob, we discussed the ATK series of small satellite buses, ITAR & international business issues, customer responsibility as opposed to manufacturer responsibility, LEO as compared to GEO satellites and much more. While The Space Show has featured many ATK programs, this programs focused on the ATK satellite business rather than the launch and SRB side of the business. I am sure you will find it to be a most interesting & informative discussion as did Dr. Jurist and I. Our second interview was with the Director of the ORS Office, Dr. Peter Wegner. Dr. Wegner was first on The Space Show in 2009 so we asked him for updates with ORS. We discussed their funding status, what constitutes an ORS satellite or ORS mission, national security and ORS, plus I asked about other space nations and their advances in operationally responsive space capabilities. I was a bit surprised to learn that the U.S. definitely has competition and others may actually be making more progress than we are. You don't want to miss this discussion. We talked about student projects, internships, and even garage innovators submitting projects to Dr. Wegner's office or by chance stumbling on classified technology. Our final interview was with Fred Slane as I asked Fred for an annual update on the progress toward adopting space standards. We discussed the need for space standards, the role of the U.N. in promoting space standards, and why adopting standards is important, even for the small entrepreneurial start-up space company. Fred was asked the difference between a standard and a specification, who the various international players are in the process, and just who gets a seat at the table. I think you will agree with both Dr. Jurist and myself that having operationally sound space standards are important for everyone. Post your comments on the blog and let us know what you think about space standards. If you want to email any of the guests for this special SmallSat program, please send your note to me and I will forward it to the guest of your choice. Also, do post general comments and questions on The Space Show blog for all to see and comment on if they so desire.
