SNC Dream Chaser — a good concept in search of a market

I feel for Sierra Nevada (even though they’ve been putz-like with their CCtCAP protest). They’ve invested so much into Dream Chaser and are so close to at least a prototype that it makes sense for them to find a customer base to replace NASA. This article details SNC’s search. They seem to have a lot of ideas, as well as a lot of interest from different markets and customers.

The real problem for them is that each different configuration will require some amount of development and testing. They may end up finding a niche by being able to land anywhere that a 737 can, but I foresee a few years of floundering before they can serve that niche.
