We are working closely with the NASA’s Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA) Projects Office at Johnson Space Center to inspire the future with a lower-cost, lighter-weight, safer, and more compliant space suit design. Zero Point Frontiers is helping NASA identify key components of the legacy design that will be upgraded for exploration missions (e.g. Mars) and be backwards compatible for International Space Station support.

Affordability Through Technology

We believe affordability is just as important a metric as performance.

Zero Point Frontiers aims to facilitate affordable access to space and identifying and building a minimal viable product is essential to lowering costs and moving quickly to market. Our expert team creates value stream maps (VSM) for small and large companies, and can help transform and streamline your cross-functional activities. We focus on new technology infusions such as Additive Manufacturing as well as state-of-the art interfaces to improve existing products and enhance new design efforts while simultaneously increasing affordability.  


Systems Engineering Tools

Zero Point Frontiers is developing a range of tools for the systems engineer.

Our decision tool assists in making complex trade decisions through a three-gate process and pairwise comparison analysis allowing the user to score decision alternatives against each other based upon Figures of Merit derived from Technical Performance Measurements. This decision tool is a defensible and traceable down-selection of multiple decision alternatives. Moon Base Alpha is a holistic life cycle cost analysis tool. Built around complex Cost Estimating Relationships and esoteric fudge factor algorithms, Moon Base Alpha delivers cradle to grave cost estimation for complex projects from the system level through subsystem, component, and subcomponent levels.

The Rule of Five

Bart Leahy Communications Consultant   Our CEO Jason Hundley has a curious theory. He explained it to me at a bar one night while his five fingers were wrapped around a glass of imperial pale ale: the best human thinking can be tied to the Rule of Five. What the heck does that mean? What… Read More »

We have applied our philosophy to help many customers across a wide spectrum of applications. From components to systems, we have a proven track record of success. Here are a few of the applications have developed:

The Engineering Launch Vehicle Initial Sizing tool (eLVis) is an internal tool for estimating launch vehicle for desired mission. It shares the performance prediction engine with Instarocket, and allows for large numbers of data value sweeps to find optimum propellant splits between the various stages of the vehicle. Users can quickly set up new concepts and compare them to multiple concepts and existing vehicles.

Instarocket is a public iPad app based on our launch vehicle sizing codes. It is intended to be a learning tool, as well as a good first-order estimator for sizing a launch vehicle in order to get a desired payload to orbit. The user can specify the fuel type, engine performance parameters, and key ratios to calculate the stage masses. Then the user can use interactive slider bars to adjust propellant loads in each stage. The app updates the drawing and performance estimates in real time while the user is adjusting the sizing.It is available for iPad and the AppStore here.


The Decision Tool uses pairwise comparison algorithms and a three-gate process to help decision makers decide what is important. Top-level figures of merit are established to identify alignments in order to eliminate the least favorable, or lowest ranking options.
