    Title

    Space Elevator Critical Technology Verification and Validation Testing

    Description

    The Space Elevator is a visionary, near future, concept that has received particular attention during the past two decades. It is a space access option that will, when successfully developed, enable extremely large-scale access to space at low marginal cost. However, there remain numerous Verification and Validation of critical technologies that challenge the developers and must be successful before the Space Elevator can be deemed ready to build. In support of the recently completed IAA study, "Road to the Space Elevator Era", this session will encompass the identification of space elevator critical technologies, examine the TRLs (technology readiness level) of these, and propose segment level testing. The session also invites reports on relevant recent R&D results, and will identify possible development strategies for space elevators and tethers.
