Abstract

The objective of this paper is to clearly demonstrate the significant advances made in recent months toward actual hardware realizations of various concepts for the utilization of in-space materials utilization (ISMU). The remarkable cost reductions possible with ISMU have been amply described elsewhere, and those virtues will not be extolled here. The basic point made in this paper is that ISMU has advanced far past stages of novelty, feasibility evaluations, paper studies, and system optimizations. Hardware components, and some simple complete systems, are available today for serious consideration by mission planners.
