Integrated Spaceflight Services & PoSSUM updates from Dr. Jason Reimuller.

Jason is a Research Scientist with the Space Science Institute and President of Integrated Spaceflight Services, serving as Principal Investigator of Project PoSSUM (Polar Suborbital Science in the Upper Mesosphere) campaign to study the polar mesosphere and noctilucent clouds structures using manned reusable launch vehicles. Jason is also leading the development of spacecraft egress training modules, training simulators, and analog space training capability. In addition, Jason also works as a commercial research pilot and flight test engineer with GATS, Inc, a NAUI SCUBA Divemaster, and is the author of “Spacecraft Egress and Rescue Operations”. Jason served for six years as a system engineer and project manager for NASA’s Constellation Program, leading studies on launch aborts, launch commit criteria, landing conditions, post-landing and emergency crew egress trades, and propulsion options. Jason also led a NASA and NSF-funded flight research campaign to study noctilucent cloud time evolution, structure, and dynamics in Northern Canada as lead investigator and pilot-in-command, and then further applied his background in airborne remote sensing to conduct research in glaciology to better understand the dynamic changes of the Greenlandic Ice Sheet as part of NASA’s Operation ICE Bridge. Jason has been a Commissioned Officer of the US Air Force and a spacecraft flight director for Space Systems Loral. Jason holds a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering Sciences from the University of Colorado in Boulder. He also holds a M.S. degree in Physics from San Francisco State University, a M.S. degree in Aviation Systems from the University of Tennessee, a M.S.

ISDC update and news from Dr. Doug Plata.

Dr. Plata is a physician and public health specialist in Loma Linda, CA. His undergraduate degree was in biophysics and he went on to complete his MD and MPH with specialty training in Family and Preventive Medicine. His involvement in space has emerged only in the last three years. His primary interest in space is the development of a cis-lunar transportation infrastructure based upon lunar polar ice for propellant. A description of his concept can be found at CisLunarOne.com. He established the on-line Lunar COTS petition which has attracted signatures of individuals from NASA, industry, academia, advocacy organizations, and space journalists.
