A Shuttle and Depot Architecture for Reliable and Cost-Effective Refueling Operations in All Orbits

Orbit Fab is working to build a ubiquitous, rapidly available propellant supply chain in Earth orbit and beyond. This vision will end the single use paradigm for spacecraft and enable the next generation of robust missions. To make this vision a cost-effective and reliable reality, Orbit Fab has developed a refueling architecture based on Fuel Depots and Shuttles, which this work explores more.
