Experimental Permit Program Report to COMSTAC May 2008 Federal Aviation Administration 2 Recognizing Ten Years of Leadership of the RLV Working Group Thank You Mike! Experimental Permit Program Report to COMSTAC May 2008 Federal Aviation Administration 3 RLV Working Group: Actions Status RLVWG Chair to distribute biomedical research briefings to RLVWG (complete) RLVWG to submit suggestions for biomedical data collection to AST by 20 November 2007 (complete) RLVWG stakeholders to submit Human Spaceflight Safety Performance Target recommendations to AST by 20 November (complete) RLVWG members to submit AST R&D topics to Chair

by 14 December 2007 (complete) Notify broader COMSTAC of Taskforce on Training Standards (complete) Experimental Permit Program Report to COMSTAC May 2008 Federal Aviation Administration 4 Comments on Development of Human Space Flight Safety Performance (HSF) Target Ken Wong, Manager, Licensing and Safety Division, AST On October 10, 2007, the COMSTAC RLV Working Group was invited to submit comments and suggestions for a proposed HSF performance target. The FAA received nine comments from different companies, organizations, and individuals. Comments included: Its too early to establish an HSF safety performance target at this time because there havent been enough commercial human space flights. The FAA will consider the comments it receives as it develops an HSF safety performance target.

It is not too early to consider what metrics should be used to monitor HSF safety in the future. The FAA would like the continued assistance of COMSTAC in creating these metrics and requests comments on the preliminary HSF target: Limit the fatal accident rate for licensed suborbital launches and reentries carrying flight crew or space flight participants to less than the overall historical rate of 1%. Experimental Permit Program Report to COMSTAC May 2008 Federal Aviation Administration 5 Status of Human Space Flight (HSF) Study Required By Congress Ken Wong, Manager, Licensing and Safety Division, AST Team of Aerospace Corporation, George Washington Univ., and Massachusetts Institute of Technology selected in September 2007 to conduct study. Preliminary and formal kickoff meetings with FAA and study team held in Oct. and Nov. 2007. Study team provided to various organizations in Nov. 2007, a list of

questions concerning HSF-related issues that the study will address. FAA discussed initial planning and briefed status of study to: Study team briefed its study approach to the Personal Spaceflight Federation (Dec. 2007). Study team spoke to Congressional Staff (Jan. 2008) and NASA HQ personnel (Dec. 2007 and May 2008). NASA and NASAs Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel (March 2007 and April 2008) COMSTAC RLV Working Group (May 2007 and May 2008). Study team is drafting report while it awaits additional responses to its list of questions. Draft study report due on June 23, 2008.

RLV Task Force was formed October 2007 Their purpose is to develop recommended commercial human spaceflight training standards and submit appropriate recommendations to the FAA through the COMSTAC RLV WG Focus is on U.S. Commercial human spaceflight operations phase, not the development and experimental phase. The training standards are intended to apply to all U. S. companies and foreign companies that operate in the U. S. The task force has conducted 8 meetings completing a first cut at a comprehensive list of space operations job categories and the associated knowledge and procedures that may require training standards. Next steps are: Select the job categories and associated knowledge and procedures that should be included in the final report to the FAA Identify criteria for defining a training standard for each job category.

Human Space Flight Safety Performance (HSF) Target: The FAA would like the continued assistance of COMSTAC in creating these metrics and requests comments on the preliminary HSF target within 1 month. Human Space Flight (HSF) Study: Study organizations are still accepting input before draft submission on June 23.
