Small Satellite Launch to Low Earth Orbit
We make space your business
Let us take you to the stars...

THE PROJECT

Reliability, availability and cost effectiveness.

We are making the small sat Launch Vehicle of the future. State of the art technology mixed with the right amount of creativity and smart choices make the best possible design to meet the expectations of the growing market of Launch Vehicles.

THE OPPORTUNITY FACTS

There is no better time than the present

01

Current unavailability for launching small satellites (under 500kg), high costs and increasing demand are creating a great opportunity to take a step into this market.

02

In the present time and for many years now a big problem achieving orbit is that there are not enough launch vehicles.

03

It is estimated that the amount of smallsats to be launched in the next decade will triple the current.

ADVANTAGES

Technological advantage

The oxidizer chosen is Hydrogen Peroxide instead of liquid Oxygen.

The reason is the huge simplification of the production, handling and storage.

For small and medium launch vehicles is more convenient because it is a liquid at ambient temperature and pressure and as it is not corrosive it reduces the cost of hardware.

Another main advantage is the possibility of coverting Hydrogen Peroxide into a Hypergolic propellant, simplifying the design, operation and firing of the rocket engine.

Strategic advantage

The location of the eastern coast of Argentina is adequate for both east and south launches, giving the chance of many different orbit angles.
