What is Zero Point?

 
About Vision What We Do Leadership Collaborate

About»

photo

In Physics – If you were to bring the temperature of the entire universe down to 0 Kelvin (-459° F or -273° C), theoretically all physical motion or kinetic energy would cease. And yet physicists have determined that energy still exists at that “zero point,” which could be tapped.

In Engineering – Every design starts from a point of origin—a zero point—from which all measurements begin. Once you know your zero point, you can begin to design.

At Zero Point Frontiers – We remove the "noise" from a complex system and get it down to its essence—its zero point—to ensure we are solving the correct problem. After that, we can tap the right ideas and build a system that meets the need.

Mission»

Everything Starts at Zero - Zero Point Frontiers believes that a better future begins by working on it today. We work with Space, Energy, Nanotechnology, Robotics, and Biotechnology because those technologies will interact to change the world. Starting from that "zero point," we will engineer great and cool ideas (i.e., flying cars, tricorders, R2D2, starships) to make them realities.

Phase 0: Establish ourselves in the Space domain, identify and extract knowledge, pursue technologies, and support existing projects within NASA, DoD, and commercial environments.

Phase 1: Mature our Space business to enter the next domain: Energy. Work both sectors simultaneously, leverage the expertise and processes we develop with Space to create a harmony between the two sectors.

Phase 2: Develop a repeatable process for entering and establishing business in the other domains: Biotech, Robotics, and Nanotech. Become the Zero Point of all of these domains. Systematically pursue more ambitious research and development projects in all of these sectors.

What We Do»

In-Space Architecture Tools: We are helping NASA develop automated tools that will help them calculate the mass of in-space transportation systems. Calculating the mass is the first step toward understanding how much the system will cost and how long it will take to build. ZPFC hopes to develop project management tools that will perform those functions as well.

Space Launch System (SLS) Advanced Development: ZPFC began as a NASA contractor at Marshall Space Flight Center and continues to support the SLS Program Office's planning and advanced development for the nation's heavy-lift launch vehicle.

3D Printing:The future of industrial development will not be defined by the factory but by desktop product printing. ZPFC is conducting internal research and development with this technology to begin prototyping low-cost space hardware.

iOS Apps: Instarocket was just our first step into the app world. WE are continuing to define new apps for iPad and other platforms. Expect other developments soon!

Topic: This paper introduces technologies that need to be developed to undertake the human mission to Mars. Mars DRA5.0 has summarized these requirements at a high level, leveraging decades of NASA and other independent studies. The Ares V Vehicle Integration and EDS teams have investigated what these technologies actually mean to the heavy-lift vehicle and its associated elements.

Instarocket App

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/instarocket/id455325630

Instarocket is a touch based program to perform early conceptual sizing on a 2 stage liquid launch vehicle.

Similar mathematics are found in ZPFCs Level 0 Launch Vehicle design Process.

Instarocket is ideal for college or professional engineers needing a rough sizing solution for a 2 stage LV.

Typical results are achieved in less than 5 minutes.

Emphasizing clarity from complexity, the Beyond-LEO Architecture Sizing Tool (BLAST) was created to develop and define mass values for beyond-LEO space architectures.

ZPFC has partnered with the NASA Johnson Space Center to develop a new approach to high-level space architecture design and analysis. BLAST couples extensive research in Mass Estimating Relationships (MER) with the ability to assess changes to a mission instantly via simultaneous sensitivity sweeps of several parameters. The tool can generate data for human-rated vehicles rapidly, by providing a shareable, re-creatable and rigorous end-to-end framework for multiple in-space elements.

BLAST performs high-level human mission architecture study analysis by focusing on two key features: a comprehensive MER-based model and a platform for developing customizable experiments. Anchored in historical data, the existing MERs have been re-designed to incorporate present-day technologies and space assets. All metadata used to formulate the subsystem MERs is easily accessible within BLAST, allowing the user to identify the assumptions behind the data. This novel approach to modeling demonstrates how legacy models may be revised into an enhanced, user-friendly framework, enabling users to develop clearly defined system architectures.

Interested in BLAST?

Thank you for your interest in BLAST!

The latest version of BLAST (1.0.3) is currently only available to government employees and government (sub)contractors. If you fall into these categories and wish to request BLAST, please complete this Software Usage Questionnaire and send to the following email address: kathryn.y.acuna@nasa.gov.

Once your request is received and approved, you will receive a Software Usage Agreement (SUA) form to sign and return to Ms. Acuna. Upon receipt of the SUA, BLAST will be released to you by a co-developer at NASA JSC, Ryan Whitley.

The co-development of BLAST between ZPFC and NASA JSC entitles JSC Civil Servants immediate access to version 1.0.3 of the software. Please contact Mr. Whitley at ryan.j.whitley@nasa.gov to request BLAST if this pertains to you.

Using our in-house capabilities of a 3D printer and our systems engineering knowledge, ZPFC took on the task of helping a local 2 year old girl by designing and producing a body powered prosthetic hand for her. Often prosthetics for toddlers are cost-prohibitive at around ten thousand dollars while our current design costs less than ten. Kate's hand gives us the opportunity to demonstrate the power of 3D printing to solve a real-world problems.
