Lunar OrbitalLoop system

No rockets requiredfor space travel.The Lunar OrbitalLoopbrings the Moonand its resourcescloser to humanity.

By 2035, TSI's Earth & Lunar orbital infrastructure will enable virtually unlimited transportation of humans and cargo from Earth to the Moon, and vice versa.

The Lunar OrbitalLoop network consists of two orbital rings in the Moon's low orbit.

Reinventing Space Tourism & Space Travel

Titans Space Industries specializes in next-generation space travel infrastructure and space industrialization.

Before proceeding, please read the recently published analysis by TSI's Principal Founder & CEO, Neal S. Lachman.

The Rocket Launch Vehicle Systems in use today are inherently limited in terms of efficiencies and pose severe shortcomings and risks. Furthermore, improvements in rocketry will remain limited for the foreseeable future, and as such space travel, space exploration, and space commercialization remains a near-impossible feat for most of humanity for decades to come.

Commerce in space, including space tourism, as well as scientific missions, let alone industrialization, will remain restricted to the frequencies and efficiencies that rocket systems and technologies would allow.

This is where TSI brings about a true paradigm shift.

Recently, TSI concluded its multi-year effort to plan the construction of orbital rings and space elevators - fixed infrastructure in ultra-low Earth orbit that enables virtually unlimited transportation of humans and cargo. This will revolutionize space travel, space exploration, and space commerce.

TSI's space infrastructure will eventually encompass three separate, fixed low-orbit systems:
1
LEO OrbitalLoop
2
Lunar OrbitalLoop
3
Mars OrbitalLoop

Each OrbitalLoop system consists of so-called orbital rings (first mentioned by Nikolas Tesla, and inspired, among others, by the plans envisioned by Dr. Paul Birch and futurist Isaac Arthur, and relatively short space elevators - instead of ~40,000 kilometers in geosynchronous orbit as is the case with space elevators proposed by other organizations.

Safer, more efficient, and cheaper than rockets

Using orbital rings and spaceships instead of rockets dramatically increases efficiencies and possibilities of space travel, space exploration, and space commercialization.

Today, there is not enough market demand for orbital rings, simply because there is not much to be done in space - as of yet.

TSI has unique, literal "moonshots" at the heart of its objectives: massive disruptive space projects that enable the company to generate revenues of US$1 trillion or more. This would include the commoditizing of precious metals mined on the Moon for use in space as well as on Earth, large-scale space tourism, and terawatts of clean energy in the form of OrbitalLoop-based space solar power systems for Earth's consumption, and many more novel opportunities.

TSI's End to End infrastructure: From our own Spaceport on Earth to our own colony on the Moon

The Lunar OrbitalLoop system will initially exist of one single (partial) polar orbital ring, and at least two space elevators that will rise from the Moon's surface to connect with the OrbitalLoop.

The first parts of the initial Lunar OrbitalLoop system will be assembled when the 2nd generation of Titans Spaceplanes or its nuclear propelled spaceships will become operational, expected by 2030.

These spacecraft and TSI's robotics and automation assets will make in-space construction possible beyond what we can imagine today.

Construction of orbital infrastructure on the Moon is easier due to its micro-gravity and an atmosphere.

In terms of operational efficiencies, the Titania Lunar OrbitalLoop system, consisting of two orbital rings, is equally crucial for the realization of all TSI orbital and lunar systems and projects.

A Multi-Phased Approach: R&D, Planning, and Construction

The world's largest construction project is obviously something that needs careful planning. We are aware of Murphy's Law.

R&D, planning, and construction of the four-level Earth OrbitalLoop and two-level Lunar OrbitalLoop systems is spread over several phases:

1
Phase 1: through 2023

Through 2023, TSI will start investing heavily in R&D, testing, preparations, and asset creation with the finalized objectives of the company, the Titans Astronauts (part of the Titans Space Society), and third parties as its guiding principles.

2
Phase 2

Through 2028, the entire core and the initial parts of the first two LEO OrbitalLoop systems will be (partly) constructed.

3
Phase 3

Through 2032, final parts of the first two LEO OrbitalLoop systems, the initial parts of the last two LEO OrbitalLoop systems, and the intial parts of the Lunar Polar OrbitalLoop will be constructed.

4
Phase 4

Through 2035, the final parts of the last two LEO OrbitalLoop systems, the complete first parts of the Lunar Polar OrbitalLoop (for Earth-Moon-Earth spaceship routes) will be constructed.

Phase 5

Through 2040, all Earth, Moon, and Mars OrbitalLoop systems should be operational.

From LEO OrbitalLoop to Lunar OrbitalLoop

Construction of the Lunar OrbitalLoop system is planned from 2032 onward; it will initially consist of one single (partial) Polar OrbitalLoop and at least two space elevators that will reach from the Moon’s surface to a yet-to-be determined altitude where they are connected to the Lunar OrbitalLoop.

TSI's Orbital infrastructure enables virtually unlimited  transportation of humans and cargo from Earth to the Moon, and vice versa.

Spaceships instead of rockets to the moon

As soon as the OrbitalLoop systems are operational, there will be no longer need for frequent rocket launches from Earth, now will be a need for the use of human landing vehicles to and from the Lunar surface. 

Point to Point transportation on Earth and on the Moon

Ultra-fast transportation of people and cargo from point to  point over the length of the OrbitalLoop system will become a reality.

Continous resupply and cargo transportation

The OrbitalLoop system allows virtually unlimited and quick supplies from Earth (of food, liquids, water, cargo, materials, and machines) to the Lunar OrbitalLoop (and as such, to Titania Lunar Colony), and virtually unlimited transport of materials and metals from the Lunar OrbitalLoop to the Earth OrbitalLoop and Titania Oceana - a Titans Universe man-made private island that will be part resort, and part transportation and cargo hub. The first Titans Space Elevator will be built near Titania Oceana.

Launch track for spaceships from Earth to the Moon, and vice versa

The OrbitalLoop functions as the launch track for specially designed spaceships, and because they accelerate on the OrbitalLoop, these vehicles don't need fuel for take-off.

Bypassing the fuel dilemma

The only fuel needed on board of the spaceship is for decelerating/turning/docking at) the point of destination. In the case of Earth’s OrbitalLoop, that would be the Lunar OrbitalLoop.

Fast turnaround and efficient operations

Once docked at the Lunar OrbitalLoop, the spaceship is to be offloaded, maintenance checked, refueled, and ready for return to the Earth OrbitalLoop it departed from, or to accelerate to take-off to Mars or beyond.

From the Moon to Deep Space

Vehicles can take off to deep space from the OrbitalLoop. Acceleration of vehicles on the OrbitalLoop is adjustable, which is of great benefit to space travel and exploration.

Bringing human space exploration closer to reality

There will no longer be a need for frequent rocket  launches from Earth to reach LEO, GEO, the Moon, Mars, and further. TSI's space vehicles can launch, travel, and land safer and more efficiently (and with much bigger payloads).

Refeuling stations in Space

Fueling and refueling of third party chemically propelled rockets and spaceships will be possible and more efficient on the OrbitalLoop, at the OrbitalPort, or Titania Lunar.
