In a bid to get back to normal after my accident, I’ve started up my private sessions again. This week saw us working on a radiocontrolledboat, our own automatic nerfgun and a fully operational portcullis and draw bridge 😀 It doesn’t matter what we’re making, the heart of of everything we do is the same- DesignBuildTest fancy booking a session at my workshop? 📲get in touch #STEMKids   #science   #engineering   #kidsclub   #funscience   #designengineering

Throughout the years, Scaled and our employees have been the honored recipients of various awards presented by the Society of Experimental Test Pilots. Testing is a large portion of the work we do, and we're grateful for the opportunities we have to bring ideas to reality.

15 years ago today the second qualifying spaceflight was made by SpaceShipOne, securing the $10 million Ansari x-prize for Scaled and its employees. 15 years later, we’ve designed, built, and flown over 8 new aircraft, including the world’s largest aircraft - Stratolaunch.

During the annual Society of Experimental Test Pilots symposium this past weekend, test pilot Evan “Ivan” Thomas was awarded the Kincheloe for the execution of the initial test program and first flight of the Scaled Model 351, Stratolaunch. In addition, the Stratolaunch first flight crew – Evan “Ivan” Thomas, Chris “Duff” Guarente and Jake Riley – were awarded the Tenhoff for the most outstanding technical paper that was presented during the event. . . . #setp   #kincheloe   #tenhoff   #stratolaunch   #testpilots   #flighttest   #scaledcomposites   #designbuildtest   #aerospace   #aerospaceengineering

Design engineer, Michael Fuchs, recently touched base with us to share an update on his current travels. We loved hearing from him, and he agreed to let us share a little about his current endeavor. Read on to learn about the Wab-Sabi Overland trip to the Arctic Circle and what it took to get there. “This project and trip were nearly 9 years in the making. In 2010, my wife and I started devising a plan to go on an extended trip to the Arctic Ocean and drive the back roads of the northern reaches of North America. After years of searching, we were unable to identify a vehicle that was rugged enough to go where we wanted to go, comfortable enough to enjoy for months on end, and something we could afford. Based on that realization, we set out to design and build our own vehicle for the journey. The bones of the project are what drew us to Scaled Composites in the first place: Design, Build, and Test of an exploration vehicle. As I am an aircraft design engineer at Scaled and my wife is a former composite structural analyst at Scaled, we are very hands on designers, and we did all the vehicle design and build work ourselves. The vehicle build took 18 months of continuous hard work. The base truck is a 1987 Mercedes 435 German military truck that we modified and upgraded for use as an expedition truck chassis. The truck was a perfect blend of off-road capability, compact size, and payload capacity. The truck also had many important attributes like extremely simple mechanical systems and ruggedized components. The original design philosophy of the vehicle meant that it was ideally suited for use and maintainability in remote locations using our hands-on technical experience. We custom designed and built the 75-square foot habitat module out of fiberglass foam sandwich panel. We outfitted the habitat with a water filtration system, high capacity solar power system, and diesel heating system. The design point of the vehicle was comfortable living for up to 16 days in remote locations without resupply. More in comments.

For Scaled, SpaceShipOne was about exploring new ideas to achieve something that had never been done before. These foam models covered with blue mylar are one way that Scaled explored ideas and tested how they worked in order to create a solution to the X-Prize challenge. Those model concepts were proven valid when they culminated in a spacecraft that flew above 100km and was able to reenter the atmosphere, using data learned from how the models handled being thrown off the airport tower! . . . . . #spaceshipone   #modelaircraft   #xprize   #designbuildtest   #scaledcomposites   #spaceflight   #commercialspace

A wet and windy one today, but these test builds are worth their weight in gold!! We were approached to take over an activation involving 4 20ft containers and 2 40ft containers, balcony and stairs.
