Titans spaceplanes & Spaceships

The Future ofSpace Travel.The Holy Grail of Aerospace.

TSI takes a different approach when it concerns long-term space travel: spaceplanes and spaceships

Manufacturing the first generation of the Titans Spaceplanes and Titans Deep-Spaceships is planned from Q3-2024 onward.

Spaceplanes and Spaceships

The Titans Spaceplanes were first envisioned for the large space tourism and orbital infrastructure projects that TSI is preparing, including our own commercial space station. These projects require long-term routine operations comparable to commercial airline/ airfreight operations.

Spaceplanes that operate like airplanes but with the ability to reach Earth's orbit, would be the answer.

According to Fortune Business Insight, the global space launch services market is projected to grow from $14.21 billion in 2022 to $31.90 billion per year by 2029.

During TSI's spaceplanes research that lasted more than fifteen months, we realized that we could dominate the space launch industry once we get our spaceplanes up and running.

Based on our study's staggering conclusions, TSI decided to spin off into a separate company: Titans Spaceplanes & Space Technologies or TSST. Twelve of the TSI founding team joined forces with several aerospace and rocketry experts to found TSST.

For example, space industry veteran Franklin Ratliff joined the team as Founding Chief Technology Officer.

Mr. Ratliff is in charge of all TSI and TSST technology developments, including Spaceplanes (from Earth surface to LEO), on-orbit assembly and refueling, LEO, GEO, and Lunar Spaceships, Deep-Spaceships (for deep space missions, primarily the Earth's Moon), lunar landers, and in the near future Earth and Lunar space elevators and orbital rings.

Titans Spaceplane: The Most Efficient and Safest Space Vehicle Ever

In the 1970s, the US government and NASA had incredibly ambitious plans to build an equatorial network of 60 solar power systems in Low-Earth Orbit from where solar energy would be beamed back to Earth.

It would require around 30 years to complete the entire network, and the use of an efficient, reusable spaceplane.

Such a spaceplane would operate like an airplane, with the major difference that it would be able to reach space - Low-Earth Orbit in this case, something that airplanes cannot achieve.

Rockwell International came up with the Star-Raker, a huge wet-wing, horizontal take-off and landing spaceplane that would be able to carry large payloads to LEO, return safely to Earth - thanks to its 95-meters wide tri-delta wings, go through checks and refueling, and take off for LEO again in a matter of hours.

The Star-Raker and its original purpose became the inspiration for the planned first generation of the Titans Spaceplanes.

TSI's preliminary designs are a slightly modified version of the Star-Raker's as a sign of respect to this beautiful design and to give the public a comparable vehicle, but the eventual Titans SpacePlane Gen 1 (TSPG1) will have major modifications and modern improvements.

We are aware of the challenges for a huge machine like the Titans Spaceplanes, but the TSST team is convinced that a spaceplane like the Star-Raker is entirely possible.

Over the course of the next eight years, TSST will develop two types of reusable launch vehicles, the first one will be a single-stage-to-orbit horizontal take-off, horizontal landing spaceplane.

This means that it will be going to space in one piece, and function like an airplane rather than a rocket. The Titans Spaceplane is planned for production from Q3-2024, and operational from Q3-2028 onward. A smaller version, the Titans Space Shuttle, is planned to be operational sooner. Both projects are being developed in stealth mode.

Orbital: Ascent to orbit followed by a short number of orbits until the vehicle is within range of the destination airfield

Sub-Orbital: Ascent through a suborbital ballistic arc where the vehicle flies outside the atmosphere but stays below orbital velocity

Cargo Deployment: The vehicle can stay in orbit and deploy uncrewed reentry capsules making precision landings under parafoil

Titans Spaceplanes serve numerous unique purposes

Launch (and/or retrieve) satellites and spacecraft in LEO (~556 km)

Other Titans Space Vehicles
Titans Space Shuttle

The Titans Space Shuttle is a smaller version of the larger Titans Spaceplane and is planned in a commercial as well as a military version.

Titans Space Shuttles will deliver Titans Deep-Spaceship modules to orbit where they will be assembled on-orbit.

Titans Space Shuttles (and later the Titans Spaceplanes) will transfer cargo and/or passengers to the Titans Deep-Spaceships, after which the spaceships take off to the Moon or beyond with six to twenty people, and ~100 metric ton of cargo. Further details (specs, timing, purpose, etc) about the Titans Space Shuttle are confidential as the company continue to operate under stealth.

Titans Deep-SpaceShip

The Titans Deep-SpaceShip is a space vehicle that is assembled on-orbit.

Titans Spaceplanes will deliver the spaceship modules to orbit where it will be assembled on-orbit.

Operations wise, the spaceship gets refueled on-orbit thanks to fuell cells delivered by Titans Spaceplanes.

Titans Spaceplanes also transfer cargo and/or passengers to the spaceships, after which the spaceships take off to the Moon or beyond with six to twenty people, and ~100 metric ton of cargo.

Delivery of modules by spaceships also allow/enable assembly of the three Titans OrbitalPort Space Stations (TOPPS; LEO, GEO, and Lunar).

Titans Nuclear SpaceShip

The Titans Nuclear Spaceship is planned for research, testing, and development between 2025 and 2030 and is supposed to take off and dock at one of the TOPSS.

Titans Deep-SpaceShips will remain in space

Our spaceplanes will take care of space travel and launches from Earth to LEO. On the other hand, our spaceships aren't intended to operate from Earth. Instead, they will always remain on-orbit and shuttle between LEO and deep space as reusable vehicles.

Titans Lunar Yacht (Surface Vehicle)

The Titans Lunar Yacht is a belly-landing horizontal landing vehicle for the lunar surface and lunar orbit. This project is also under stealth.
