Aerospace R&D

Amateurs talk Rockets, Professionals talk Launch Systems
Our suborbital launch system is mature, flexible and built to address your unique mission needs. You get lots of say in payload-bay design, flight profile and flight schedule, while we take care of the rocket and the other 99% of the effort you likely didn't know was needed to conduct a mission. Here is a sampling of missions we can perform.
  • See if your wares can handle the environment of an actual rocket
  • Your motor can push a test stand; see how it pushes a real rocket
  • Eject your wares and see how they traverse the entire atmosphere
  • Anything else you want to test on/with a rocket? Just let us know!
