Technology to advance humanity's future in space

Launcher develops the world’s most efficient rockets and transfer vehicles to deliver small satellites to orbit by combining liquid propulsion technology and onsite 3D manufacturing. Driven by the mission to expand access to space, Launcher’s vehicles are powered by its high-efficiency engines, whose lower fuel consumption makes Launcher more affordable to customers. Founded in 2017, Launcher is headquartered in Hawthorne, California and is proud to partner with the U.S. Space Force, U.S. Air Force and NASA. 

Launch demand is outpacing supply

The satellite launch market is expected to grow from $8B today to $38B in 2030.

Small satellite launch today

SpaceX Rideshare is now available at an unprecedented $5,000/kg price to SSO. More flights and orbits at lower cost are expected.
When SpaceX Rideshare doesn’t meet satellite orbit, schedule or sensitivity requirements, the only option is dedicated launch (at >$50,000/kg).

Launcher is the only company with dedicated launch + orbital transfer or rideshare
