Abstract

This is the final report of the FLACON project. Its objective was to identify and assess the long-term potential of commercial high-altitude flight in Europe for selected mission requirements, in view of the activities in the United States (US) following the successful space ship one (SS1) demonstration and the efforts performed to arrive at the next generation space ship 2 as well as aspirations by other companies.

The document describes the motivation for the study, based on relative efforts experienced in the US and then states the project's objectives. It later explains the study's findings and concludes with recommendations and knowledge dissemination actions.
