This Agreement confirms that EMC Holdings Corporation ("EMC") is engaged as an advisor to SpaceDev, Inc. ("SpaceDev", also known and referred to as "SPDV"), its successors, subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively referred to herein as, the "Company"), with respect to financial advisory, market intelligence, corporate finance, and merger and acquisition matters for twelve (12) consecutive months effective June 18, 2001. In consideration of the covenants contained herein, the Parties agree as follows:


During the term of this Agreement, EMC shall provide the Company with such regular and customary advisory services as are reasonably requested by the Company, provided that EMC shall not be required to undertake duties not reasonably within the scope of the advisory services for which it is generally engaged.

It is understood and acknowledged by the Parties that the value of EMC's advice is not measurable in a quantitative manner and EMC shall be obligated to render advice, upon the request of the Company, in good faith. EMC's duties may include, but will not necessarily be limited to, the following:

o Advice regarding obtaining financing
o Advice regarding corporate organization, personnel, and

o Market Intelligence implementation
