The Launcher Light payload fairing is capable of accommodating an standard ESPA sized payload with ample margin with more room for any combination of additional small and Cube satellites.Download CAD Model
Launcher Light doesn’t cut corners to get to orbit. From the start, we are designing our E-2 engine as a closed-cycle, staged-combustion engine that powers the first stage with a single engine. This high efficiency engine enables a small, low cost rocket to carry a comparatively large amount of payload.
The entire assembled Launcher Light is ground transportable and can operate from globally dispersed launch sites with minimal to no permanent infrastructure.
Launcher has embarked on an ambitious development program that involves engine testing at NASA Stennis Space Center and additional commercial engine and rocket stage test sites in Southern California. We love showing off our progress so be sure to subscribe to our updates and check back often and we reach more milestones on the way to our first flight.
