Abstract

Only revolutionary concepts, out-of-the-box thinking and radical innovations have the chance to expand the frontiers of human exploration and exploitation of space. Disruptive Space Technologies (DSTs) is the collective name for technologies which contribute to this goal (also called game changing, cross cutting and radical space technologies). Within the space sector some DST candidates are visible, which can boost the performance of spacecraft applications and even establish new functions and mission options. Just some examples of possible these DSTs include; Additive Layer Manufacturing, Metal foams Electrodynamics tethers, Quantum communication, Electroactive Polymers, Aerographite, Quantum-Dot Solar cells. DLR has performed a study for ESA, analysing and identifying DSTs. Within this project, several factors were analysed which could indicate the potential for disruption and thus, function as success factors for space technologies. These indicators result from both literature research and an analysis of the space sector. The indicators are ranked according to the different macro-environmental factors of the STEP-Analysis (Social, Technical, Economic and Political).
