View source for Technology Selection
For selecting and refining each key technology pertaining to the Gen1 Enterprise, on these BTEWiki pages the following five-step approach will be taken. <br /><br /> # For the technology considered, create a list of the top ten relevant research papers. (Ten is max, but fewer can be listed.) # Based on the research papers, identify the key performance spec parameters for which goals will need to be set. # Set the key performance spec goals with the Gen1 Enterprise’s 20 year development window firmly in mind. A justification is given to explain why each goal is within reason and why each goal is important. # A comprehensive design concept is given for each technology in a pursuit to establish a best-fit design solution that enables meeting the key performance spec goals. The conceptual design includes (a) a detailed technical description of the technology and a justification for the approach taken, (b) a detailed diagram of the conceptual design, (c) size and mass estimates where relevant, and (d) cost estimates. # List ideas for future research including specific goals for the research that will help advance the Gen1 Enterprise conceptual design.<br /> Beyond the scope of the five steps above, ideas are given regarding the usefulness of this technology beyond the Gen1 Enterprise including but not limited to other gigawatt-class interplanetary spaceships.
