                            of Two Reputable Companies

                                                        Dynetics purchased Orion
                                                         Propulsion in December
                                                         2009, resulting in a

                                                         partnership.

     Dynetics has delivered high-quality, high-value engineering, scientific,
      and information technology solutions to customers within the U.S.
      government and a range of other market segments since 1974.
     Dynetics has invested capital and other resources in its Space Systems
      Division, and the purchase of Orion further represents the company’s
      continued commitment to provide responsive, affordable space products
      and services.
     Started in Huntsville Alabama with 1300 employees
     Orion’s capabilities are enhanced and strengthened through this
      partnership. Orion’s products integrate into Dynetics’ larger systems,
      enabling more offerings to an even wider range of customers.

                 If someone built it, would they really come?

      Things you might ponder before
      starting a space company:
     • Is there really a sub-orbital
       launch market?
     • Why have so many space start-
       ups failed?
     • Is there an orbital launch
       market for US launch providers
       without the US government?
     • Can a US company compete in a
       world market without ITAR
       protecting certain niche
       markets?
     • How do you build a space
       company with little or no
       money or risks?

                                   Multiple Space Start-ups Failed! Why?
             Major space company efforts fell short for various reasons i.e. financial, political,
                 technical, management, market, other. How could I avoid these pitfalls?

                 What is the right recipe to make a space company succeed?




         • No launch vehicles
         • Hardware 1st
         • Support all primes and subs on
           anything that makes fire and
           smoke or tests things that
           produce fire and smoke
         • Try to have a balance of
           customers i.e DoD, NASA,
           Commercial.
         • Embrace local technical customer
           1st, then reach out
         • Don’t bite off more than we can
           chew-many lessons learned here.
         • Creative marketing is free-Press
           and PR are wonderful avenues to
           get message out.

                         What would be the Ideal environment/structure be
                         to rapidly develop a low cost Aerospace Systems?

        •        Skunk-works- Model an environment similar to Kelly Johnson’s
                 “Skunkworks” as it existed in the early 1950’s
        •        Unlimited Resources- Unlimited $ Resources Experienced Team
        •        We know how to build rockets- Seasoned and experienced core
                 leadership/engineering Team assembled and ready to go conquer
        •        Hands-off- Unencumbered work environment with streamlined
                 procurement
        •        Lean- Streamlined traceable development program without all the
                 hardcore bells and whistles found in large primes with traditional
                 Quality Systems. Development environment ideally where engineering
                 and manufacturing would exist underneath same roof
        •        Development to production- Near the final Phase I production
                 engineers would begin to shadow the development team, and once the
                 development Phase I was completed, the design would be handed off
                 to a to a seasoned production team for a full blown IS9001/AS9100
                 Certified production process. This assumes it become an
                 operational/fielded system.

                 Bigelow Aerospace Attitude Control System

         •       Bigelow contracted with Orion Propulsion to design and deliver forward end
                 attitude control system (ACS) for Sundancer -- the commercial space habitat
                 capable of supporting crew for 15 years
         •       The ACS designed by Orion uses the hydrogen and oxygen bi-products from
                 Sundancer's environmental control and life support system (ECLSS) to
                 generate the propellants for the thrusters. The forward ACS will be used for
                 both attitude manipulation and momentum wheel de-saturation.
