Roadmap

2022

The EcoRocket Demonstrator first orbital launch.
The fabrication of EcoRocket Heavy started at ARCA and the first Propulsion Modules hardware should be introduced also in 2022.
The AMi Cargo will be introduced to the public also in 2022 when we will also see the first iterations of the spacecraft’s main plasma engine.
The first drop tests for the AMi capsule will be performed as well as recovery rehearsal from the sea.

2023

All ground tests for the propellant tanks, engines and avionics for all three types of Propulsion Modules for each stage of the EcoRocket Heavy will be completed. 
The individual Propulsion Modules designed for all EcoRocket stages will perform suborbital flights.
The tests for the AMi Cargo main engine, as well as the main propellant tank will be complete, while the tests for the solar panels and avionics will start.
The first iterations for the mining technology for the AMi Cargo will be implemented.

2024

The first complete EcoRocket Heavy will be launched in 2024, carrying a dummy AMi Cargo as payload.
The team will rehearse the complete EcoRocket flight sequence, including recovery and reusability for the first two stages.
The AMi Cargo will start the operational tests on the ground, as well as the mining tests.
The hydrogen peroxide installation will enter into our inventory serving the AMi Plans's propellant needs for the third stage.
The team will start the construction of AMi Deep Space Communication Network (DSCN) in three locations in the world.

2025

The first orbital flight of the operational AMi Cargo, launched by the second EcoRocket Heavy, will be performed. 
The first in orbit start of AMi's plasma main engine powered by the fully deployed solar panels.
During this flight we should also witness the first atmospheric reentry and recovery from the sea of the AMi Cargo capsule.
AMi Deep Space Communication Network will become operational and it will provide the data link to the AMi Cargo while in orbit.

2026

EcoRocket Heavy will launch the AMi Cargo that will perform an asteroid reconnaissance mission to identify on site the suitable targets for the first asteroid mining mission.
A rehearsal of intercepting and approaching the asteroid will be performed, without touching the celestial body.
The DSCN will provide the data link to the AMi Cargo during the deep-space flight.
During this mission we should also be able to witness the first reentry test of the recoverable capsule returning from an asteroid.

2027

The first asteroid mining mission with the target the returning of 1,000 kg of platinum, worth of $34,000,000, although the capsule is able to return up to 2,500 kg of various ore.
This is the year that should seal the first commercial deal of selling space resources on the Earth market.
AMi will become the first commercial company to sell space resources.
The first use of the AMi crypto to buy space mining resources with 20% of the cost covered with the token. The AMi Token holders will have the right of first refusal, and therefore priority to purchase the ore with a discount.

2028

The second asteroid mining mission that will target an increase of the mass of the returned ore.
The start of the orbital depot construction using elements from the AMi Cargo related hardware and EcoRocket Heavy third stage.
EcoRocket Heavy might start providing materials to the depot, as water, oxygen, etc, depending on the commercial request from various companies or space agencies.
By this year the company should be able to start financing itself from asteroid mining operations, as main source of revenue.

2029

We should expect two more missions to the asteroids and the completion of the third EcoRocket Heavy construction.
By this year, the AMi Cargo should be able to maximise its payload capability of returned ore, witnessing payloads of 2,500 kg of ore, valuing as much as $85,000,000.

2030

Five more asteroid mining missions.
The orbital space depot should become fully operational and able to dock mining vehicles arriving from the asteroid missions and cargo from Earth.
In 2030 we should also be able to see the first commercial sale of resources from the orbital depot to third parties that are space flight operators.
The team will start the study for the second generation of AMi Cargo with extended range, able to perform significantly faster deep-space travels. This next generation of AMi Cargo will incorporate the experience gained during the exploitation of the first generation vehicle.

2031

Nine more asteroid mining missions.
As of 2031, we should account the first billion raised from asteroid mining operations.
The first iterations of the second generation of AMi Cargo will be implemented and the tests will start.

Next Decade

After 2031 the asteroid mining operation would have been establish itself as a routine operation, as we should witness a regular activity of 12-24 asteroid mining missions/year.
Also, we should expect the first configuration of the second generation AMi Cargo as a deep-space exploration vehicle and the first deep-space exploration missions. These missions will target the asteroid belt in search of new resources, and even beyond in the Solar System.
