Space Operational Framework

This project will: 1) enumerate the activities that must be performed at a "typical" spaceport; 2) analyze and evaluate the structure of sub-activities that are or will be performed at a spaceport; 3) identify the variables within this structure and the policies that impact them; and 4) determine the ways in which changes in the relationship between these variables and spaceport policies will impact spaceport operation.
