Technologies for Earth and Beyond
 
The technology needs of the expanding space economy will continue to mature and require multidisciplinary experts and teams. The 4Frontiers research and development program adapts and extrapolates well-developed terran technologies as well as new ideas to support emerging space commerce.
 
4Frontiers can offer development and testing of a wide range of space related activities on Earth using simulation, allowing accurate prototype testing under all conditions except lower gravity. Near-term development will proceed using established mathematical and computer models to compensate for the gravity difference. The 4Frontiers consulting capability will expand into selected breakthrough technologies, private survey missions, and low-gravity testing as the program matures.
 

"You see layers as you look down. you see clouds towering up. You see their shadows on the sunlit plains, and you see a ship's wake in the Indian Ocean and brush fires in Africa and a lightning storm walking its way across Australia. You see the reds and the pinks of the Australian desert, and it's just like a stereoscopic view of all nature, except you're a hundred ninety miles up." - Joseph Allen
