«The bitter experience of war has taught the maxim
that the Art of War is the art of the possible logistically.»
Hyman G. Rickover, Admiral

The current and future conflicts have already revealed, to a large extent, their characteristics and Logistics must respond to the demands that the possible actions for their resolution demand.
Logistics must be able to provide the forces that are generated, deployed and operate in the different theaters of operations.
And, where appropriate, the population victim of conflicts or humanitarian catastrophes, the appropriate levels of support at the moment precise and in the necessary place.
The SCM (Supply Chain Management) concept must integrate the space dimension as part of supply chain management that plans, implements and controls the direct and reverse flow of materials and products.
Their storage, as well as services and information. associated, from the point of origin to the point of consumption.
The use of AI in SCM is essential for the prediction and forecasting of needs, identification of the necessary materials or products, manufacturing, assembly, acquisition or contracting, storage, transport and distribution.
Repair or reconstruction of manufactured materials, inventory management and the permanent flow of related information, all between the initial and final and intermediate points, in both directions and in the most efficient way possible.
Unmanned Robotic Cargo System or URCaS is a the concept of a multipurpose charging system responsible for Suborbital, Orbital operations in LEO, MEO and GEO and Points L4 and L5 in the Earth-Moon system.
The system is made up of three unmanned robot vehicles or URVs with AI:
URV-1 (HAL) and URV-2 (SAL) have orbital / L4-L5 operational capacity.
URV-3 (Robby) has suborbital / orbital operational capability.
HAL and SAL is the name chosen in honor of the 2001 series of books Space Odyssey and Robby by the TV series The Forbidden Planet.
URCas is designed to meet the following objectives:
Quick and simplified launch operations
Fast charge integration
Autonomous loading and unloading
Global Transportation Units
Suborbital transport for the delivery of special equipment, light equipment and general cargo from continental bases to any point on the planet.
Transport and Orbital Support through the combined use of previously stored materials and manufactured with 3D systems in orbit sent to any point on the planet by re-entry vehicle.
URV-1 (HAL) Unmanned Deep Space Cube Robot Vehicle has the function of connecting up to four URV-2 (SAL), it also allows the connection of URV-3 (Robby) and other cargo ships.
Provides additional thrust motors for orbit changes.
Equipped with AI to make autonomous navigation and asset protection decisions.
URV-2 (SAL) Cylinder-shaped Deep Space Unmanned Robot Vehicle connects up to two URV-1s (HALs).
Its function is to store cargo, human habitat, factory with 3D printers, energy provider system capturing solar power and beaming that energy back to Earth in the form of microwaves.
It has 4 deployable solar panels and four drive and maneuver motors.
Serves as a platform to deploy additional external equipment such as energy projection systems, kinetic projection systems and optical and digital surveillance systems
URV-3 (Robby) Unmanned Terrestrial Robot Vehicle launching assisted by another vector with the capacity to transport materials and equipment on suborbital flights for deployment anywhere on the planet.
Has a vertical landing deployable system based on the blueorigin model.
URV-3 has the ability to orbit and re-enter through an additional modification.
URCaS system, due to its modular assembly capacity, autonomy and AI power, can be used in the civil sector as a manufacturing and development station in the cislunar economy at points L4 and L5.
Cislunar economy is an essential for global sustainable development requirements can transform the global economy and provide incredibles benefits to humanity & the environment.
The growth of human populations, demands for clean energy, improved material and social living standards and a more just world have outstripped the carrying capacity of the Earth.
We believe that the Sustainable Development Goals cannot be realized without the development of space based energy and material resources.
Cislunar economy complimenting the present global economy and providing for more geometric economic growth.
The vast majority of the material and energy resources of the solar system are in space – not on the Earth.
These resources allow humanity to escape the limits due to the finite resources of Earth – dramatically reducing the difficulty of obtaining sustainable development.
The sun produces more than TEN TRILLION times the amount of energy currently used by humanity.
Another example is space mining for the management, treatment and recycling of the 6200 metric tons of space debris.
It will also allow the sustained development of new techniques, equipment, systems and associated technologies for the treatment of materials sent from the Moon, Mars and the Asteroid Belt.
