Projects

The APIS family of spacecraft will serve as the infrastructure for space related activities by providing the propellant, in the form of water mined by the Honey Bee, and the transport, in the form of the Worker Bee.

The Optical Mining Test Bed will be used to test optical mining technology on Earth. It uses a Xenon bulb and vacuum chamber to simulate the conditions expected in asteroid mining.

Flight Demonstrations of Trans Astra's technology will prove to NASA and other investors that optical mining and the Omnivore Thruster work outside of a lab environment. 

The Sutter Survey will be able to find and track thousands of asteroids a year, helping to meet congress' mandate on asteroid discovery and to find viable asteroids for mining.
