ASI will lead the space-based manufacturing industry of the 21st century, drastically reducing the costs associated with space exploration, habitation, and development.
- Offset some initial costs using small-scale, flexible-use ISS-based facility: JEA / barter with NASA / ISS; user contracts.
- Use Mars mission to develop large-scale manufacturing: collaborate with other enterprises (e.g., lunar mining)
- Market capabilities to customers within the emerging space markets
- Long-term: Facilitator & technology provider to space-based manufacturing
