ULA Innovation: SMART Reusability

I’ll believe this when I see it…

Snagging a parafoil out of the air with a helo is definitely easier said than done. Notice the not-so-subtle jab at SpaceX’s approach…ULA expects their approach to be 12X more cost effective than SpaceX’s approach.

2 observations:

  1. ULA must be sweating bullets about their ability to compete against what they must see as their biggest threat — SpaceX.
  2. ULA’s approach focuses on cost effectiveness. SpaceX’s approach is focused on landing on Mars.

Not that there’s anything wrong with a focus on cost effectiveness, it’s just that SpaceX’s approach does both.
